The great thing for Quinton is that even though his high school (Colony) isn't in one of the top classes in Texas, he still faces Divison One talent every game, something that wouldn't hold true in very many states.
"Playing football in Texas is going to help me get an offer, there is just more competition," stated Quinton. "I go up against D1 talent every game."
At this time, Quinton has no offers. However, Wisconsin, Iowa, West Virginia, Notre Dame, Texas Tech, and Baylor are all showing interest.
"I'm more determined this season than any other because I know I have to go out and earn a scholarship. I want to gain 1500 yards and 20 TD's, in which I know will also help my team qualify for the playoffs and possibly Austin."
"Academics are very important to me," noted Quinton, who carries a 3.6 and 820 on SAT. "I also want to play RB in college, but I could end up playing cornerback."
Quinton will have a very big chip on his shoulder this fall trying to prove he is worthy of an offer. It'll be interesting in seeing whether Iowa increases their interest in Quinton with an offer. One thing Quinton has on his side is his great speed. That speed might be useful for the Iowa staff at another position.
