Zach Quinney is getting closer to making his decision

Savannah Christian Academy offensive lineman Zach Quinney is moving closer to making his college choice. This coming weekend Quinney will be attending camps at two of the schools that he is still considering before making his decision.

It was rumored that Zach was down to two schools. That is partly true as Quinney has two leaders but he is still considering four schools. A fifth school may also enter the picture. Georgia Tech, Mississippi State, Duke, and North Carolina are the four schools that Zach is considering. Georgia is the fifth school that is trying to get in the picture. “I’ll be going back to see them Saturday and workout at center."

Tech and Mississippi State are the two schools that currently lead for Quinney’s commit. “Georgia Tech has been on me for a long time and has always been honest and upfront with me. I can't ask for more than that.” In the past month, Mississippi State has upped their recruitment of Quinney but he still feels that Tech is recruiting him the hardest.

An offer from Georgia would probably put them in that group with Tech and Mississippi State. “It would be a difficult decision if Georgia were to offer.” Zach knows that they would move ahead of Duke and North Carolina. North Carolina has backed off their recruitment of Zach as they are filling up their offensive line scholarships. “I've had time to commit to them but I have a plan on what I want to do and I’m sticking to it."

Zach plans to attend camp at UGa on Sat, Jul 16 and Georgia Tech on Sun, Jul 17."I may or may not participate in the Tech camp. I'll use the visit to get more information and see if my relationship with the coaches is as strong as I think it is." Zach would also like to visit Mississippi State the week after he visits the in-state schools but that visit hasn’t been set up. “My time constraints will dictate whether I go or not."

Following the visits, Zach will sit down with his mom, dad, and his high school coach to sort everything out and see which school is the best fit. Academics playing time, the depth chart and his relationship with the coaches and players will all enter into Zach’s decision.

Even though he lives in the middle of Georgia country, Zach doesn’t feel any pressure in making his decision. "Everyone knows I’m going to go to the school I want and no one is pressuring me to attend any one school. In fact, that might be detrimental if they did.” Quinney’s coach feels that if he works hard and keeps his head on straight, that he’ll have a good shot at the NFL. “He knows the NFL will find linemen anywhere so he wants me to be happy for my college choice."

If everything goes as planned, Zach should make a decision shortly after he takes his visits. "I know I’ll have it made before I go back to school. It will probably be sooner than that.” Top Stories
