Hawaii recruit offer spotlight: Santa Ana (Calif.) CB Quentin Lake

WarriorSportsNetwork spotlights a new recruit that has been offered by Nick Rolovich's staff at Hawaii every weekday. Today's spotlight features cornerback Quentin Lake of Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei HS.

The Target


Primary Recruiter

Defensive Coordinator Kevin Lempa


Quentin Lake is a three-star recruit who had flown under the radar until just recently. Nevada was the first school to offer, followed by San Jose State and now Hawaii. He is also drawing interest from a handful of Power-5 schools. He has made an early offseason impression with his man-to-man cover skills and overall athleticism.

Lake is a legacy of UCLA, where his father starred and went on to play for over a decade in the NFL. Carnell Lake is now an assistant coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Quentin Lake hails from a prominent football high school in Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei. Lake was the second recruit from the school to land an offer from Hawaii after linebacker Faavae Faavae.

Expert Opinion

“Lake is a big corner, pushing 6-2 but showed nice short area quickness, the ability to break and close on the ball and solid man on man cover skills.

“Lake is advanced technique wise, which isn't surprising as his father is former UCLA All-American and Pittsburgh Steelers pro-bowler Carnell Lake.

“The younger Lake has a safety frame but moves around well enough to play corner and can play at the high BCS level. Add what he did in pads last season and there's no doubt the kid can play,” - Scout.com National Recruiting Analyst Greg Biggins


I was excited because I know one of my buddies from my school also received a scholarship from (Hawaii) too,” Lake said. “He said good things about them so I was excited they were giving me a scholarship as well.”


The Competition

Offers from Nevada and San Jose State. Interest from Colorado State, Pittsburgh, UCLA and Utah.
