Catching Up with Coples

Four-star defensive end Quinton Coples hails from Kinston (N.C.) Kinston High School. He reports offers from Clemson, East Carolina, Florida, North Carolina State, South Carolina, Virginia and North Carolina.

"I am talking to Coach Doc Holliday at the University of Florida," Quinton Coples said. "They are the defending National Champions and they have a real fast defense. They like my size at 6-7 and 238-pounds and I know they like the taller quicker defensive ends. I mean all of my options are open at this time but I know I want to get down to Florida on a visit over the summer. I am looking at the coaching staff, the players and the academics."

Coples has extremely quick feet and gets after the ball with a motor that never seems to stop.

"Coach Holliday compared me a little bit to Jarvis Moss coming out of high school," he said.

Playing time for Coples is very important, as he wants to see the field as soon as possible at the next level to display his talents.
