Profile - Zach Quinney
Savannah Christian Academy offensive lineman Zach Quinney and his family were in Atlanta Sunday to visit Georgia Tech. This after visiting Georgia on Saturday. The visit led to Zach making a decision today to give his verbal commit to Georgia Tech.
The trip to Tech on Sunday gave Quinney a chance to see the entire campus for the first time. “I was simply amazed at how beautiful, clean, and modern it was. I loved the campus.”
Tuesday afternoon Zach called Coach Paul Johnson and Coach Lamar Owens and committed to Georgia Tech. It has been Quinney’s lifelong goal to play his college ball in the state of Georgia and get a good business degree. “The coaches had me on speaker and they both were excited. They said they had me at the top of their board from the start.”
Coach Owens first saw Zach play when he was recruiting teammate Demetrius Robertson. “He told me that once signing day was over, that I could expect an offer.” Tech offered as promised and stayed on Quinney ever since.
Having Coach Johnson show him the jobs he could get with a Tech degree helped to seal the deal. All three of Zach’s goals of playing in-state, playing in a P5 conference, and having the chance to get a good degree were met with his commit to Tech. Zach’s parents were also excited with the decision. “They really fell in love with Tech after each visit we made, especially this last one."
At one time, Zach contemplated visiting Mississippi State. That is no longer an option. “Considering that Georgia Tech is a great fit and the best fit, I just ended my recruitment about a month early." Should a school like Georgia offer, Zach will be telling them that he is 100% committed to Tech. “Even if they came up in January and asked, I would say the same thing. I am done with my recruitment."
Next on the agenda for Zach will be a call to fellow offensive line recruit Demetris Harris. “I’m going to recruit him to come to Tech with Connor Hansen and myself.” Harris and Quinney spent some time together Sunday and they both enjoyed their time together. “The coaches said they want four offensive linemen and Connor Hansen and myself are the first two.” Carrollton recruit Case Cook is another of the lineman on the Tech board. "If he and Demetris commit, the coaches will have the four they want.”
