Still "Russell-ing" Up Interest

After recently de-committing from one of the best programs in Division-1 football, four-star prospect Quincy Russell is once again on the recruitment market.

The University of Texas has, without a doubt, made a dominating impact on the world of college football under the leadership of Mack Brown. However, that influence didn't seem to be enough for San Antonio Sam Houston's Quincy Russell to keep his commitment there.

"I just didn't feel right about. I felt good about the school, but I just felt like it wasn't the right time for me to commit to a school with another whole year of football to play."

Russell said that Texas is still among his top four choices of schools; the other three of which are Baylor, Oklahoma, and Nebraska, which he'll visit this weekend. He was also recently invited to Baylor's Spring football game, but was unable to attend. However, Russell did attend Baylor's Junior day in February and was excited about the program.

"I want to see how Baylor plays this season. They seem like a pretty young team, but they're still coming into their own right now, giving it their all. I also like the class size and how good of a school Baylor is."

Among his main requirements in the program he selects, Russell wants to play "as quickly as possible as well as get the most experience possible." The four-star prospect also expects a good run from his team during the upcoming season.

"I'm looking forward to a good season, because pretty much everyone on our team came back; we should win a state title next year, no if ands or buts about it. We have the talent, we have everyone coming out stronger than they were, and if everyone comes out with the same mind frame we should make a good run."

As always, stick to for the latest on Baylor recruiting and athletics.
