Sensational In-State WR Favors the Buffs

Fans of Colorado prep football have been raving about Grandview's <b>Aubrey Quarles</b> since he was a freshman. Finally, the time to recruit the state's most exciting player has come. He is best friends with current CU redshirt freshman <b>Ryan Walters</b> and the Buffs hold a big early advantage.

"I have a great relationship with Colorado since my (half) brother Clyde Surrell went there," said Quarles. "The school is right up the street from me. It is close for my family and it is where I have always wanted to go."

The potential problem in this made-for-Saturdays relationship is that Quarles has a suffering core GPA of around a 2.0. "My main goal right now is to get my grades up so I can get some more looks. I also really want to score high on my ACT."

The receiver has been in contact with coach John Wristen from the CU staff. "He is just telling me to stay in the weight room and get my grades up."

Other schools Quarles currently likes include Kansas, Kansas State and Notre Dame.

As a junior, he had 34 catches for 590 yards. On defense, he had four interceptions as he saw spot-duty at free safety. He was named first team all-conference at wide receiver and first team all-state as a punt and kick returner.

His coach believes he can play anywhere on the field. "He is a threat from everywhere on the field; safety, running back, corner, kick returner, punt returner, wherever," said Grandview head coach John Schultz. He is an amazing player when he is in the open field."

Quarles believes his future is on offense. "I am a good route-runner and I am good at reading coverages before the play starts and also during the play. I know how to get open."

He says he will definitely attend the CU camp this summer, and will also make it to a camp of one of the Texas schools.

Quarles is taking the ACT on April 12th.
