Four-Star Flowers Talks Auburn Trip

Four-star Quinton Flowers discusses his visit to Auburn on Monday for a summer camp, recruiting and much more.

A player who excels at quarterback, is rated as a four-star wide receiver by Scout.com and is built like a running back, 6-0, 210 Quinton Flowers is one of the top athletes in the country for the 2014 football recruiting class.

Along with several teammates from his 7-on-7 squad from the Miami area, Flowers took part in a football camp on Monday in Auburn and was one of the more impressive players on the field.

Showing a strong arm at quarterback, Flowers says that's the position he wants to play on the next level, but it's not hard to see what many teams envision from him down the line. Explosive and built like he's ready to play right now, the nation's 10th rated wide receiver prospect says that he really enjoyed getting to see what Auburn is all about.

"It went very good," Flowers tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "It was good to see the school. One of our former Jackson High (Miami) players is here, Robenson Therezie, and he was telling me about it. He told me it was a great school and a good place to be.

"I wanted to see for myself because I knew he wouldn't tell me a lie. Our coaches asked me if I wanted to go to Auburn and I said yes. Once I got up here I saw it and liked it. I'm very interested in Auburn. Hopefully, I'll get an offer after this."

Spending time working with Auburn QB Coach Rhett Lashlee and camp coach Steve Walsh on Monday, Flowers also got to meet and talk with Auburn WR Coach Dameyune Craig as well. He says his first impression of the Tigers' staff was a very positive one.

"I had a good impression," Flowers says. "They are good people. I didn't know it would be like this for me taking my first trip. It was all new to us. We went up to Tennessee and all loved it too."

With offers from top programs across the country including Alabama, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Syracuse, TCU, West Virginia and several others, Flowers is being recruited as an athlete by several of the schools on his list with a few wanting him as a quarterback. He says right now there is no question which position he prefers moving forward.

"Not all of them are recruiting me as a quarterback," Flowers notes. "Three or four schools are recruiting me as a receiver. I want to play quarterback."

Planning to visit Florida State, South Florida at the end of June and hoping to see Marshall and West Virginia next month, Flowers says at the moment he's just taking his time and enjoying the recruiting process.
