Corral Conversations: Quaylon Ewing

Kempner HS CB Quaylon Ewing (Sugar Land, TX) was an early commit for the Broncos in their 2009 recruiting class. Ewing finished his HS career with a stellar season in 2008. He spoke to BroncoCountry.com about his Signing Day experience, his HS career, and his future as a Bronco.

Kempner HS CB Quaylon Ewing (Sugar Land, TX) was an early commit for the Broncos in their 2009 recruiting class. Signing Day couldn't come soon enough for Ewing. "The whole day was basically a crazy day," he said. "I woke up energized and I never do. I put on my Bronco shirt and I was ready to sign. I wish I could do it everyday. I even woke up before my alarm."

Ewing signed his LOI early that Wednesday morning. "I think I signed at 8:00 or 8:30," he said. "I was the only one on my team to sign," he added.

The last few weeks prior to Signing Day were hectic for Ewing. "Coach Pete, Coach Choate, and Coach Yates all stopped by at different times," he said. "It was great. They are a great group of guys. I love them," he added.

Quaylon's senior season was one to remember even with the first round loss in the state playoffs. "I had five INTs and 85 tackles. I also blocked a punt and returned it for a TD," he said. "I'll be playing in the Bayou Bowl on June 13th. It's the best in Texas vs. the best in Louisiana." Ewing will proudly represent Boise State in the game. "It makes me feel even better representing Boise. I'll be going up against the best receivers in Louisiana."

Ewing's favorite moment of the 2008 Bronco season came in the win against Oregon. "My favorite moment was when they beat Oregon," he said. "That was a good game for them. Everyone knows about Boise and all of the BCS talk. I love the underdog school," he added.

The standout CB from Texas will bring a hard hitting mentality to the Bronco defense. "I love hitting," he said. "I think Boise has quite a few (hard hitters). I don't think Jeron (Johnson) even blinks."

What does being a Bronco mean to Quaylon Ewing? "Being a Boise State Bronco means I'm going to a dominate football school," he said. It means a lot to be a part of a family like that and it's basically a dynasty. It's like getting drafted to the Patriots and knowing you are going to win the Super Bowl."

Ewing was glad to hear that CB Kyle Wilson would return for his senior season. "It'll be an honor to learn from Kyle (Wilson)," he said. "When I saw him on my visit I was star struck. He's one of the best corners ever at Boise and he'll do real good in the league. I'm looking forward to working with him."

Quaylon will be working hard all off-season. "I just recently got my workout plan," he said. "I'm running track and that's keeping me in shape as well. I've been on varsity for four years and I love it."
