Kentucky's annual Blue-White game isn't just about the final spring practice scrimmage. It's also an opportunity for recruits to see Kentucky football in live action. Quintez Sutton was one of the players on hand for the contest.

DuPont Manual is the home of one of Kentucky's early 2012 commitments, Thomas Chapman. Chapman attended the Blue-White game this weekend and brought along a couple of his teammates, including 6-foot-3, 176-pound receiver Quintez Sutton.

"I really enjoyed myself at the game," said Sutton. "My friends and I had a lot of fun together. The atmosphere up there was great too, especially for a spring game," said Sutton.

Sutton was impressed with the play on the field and he thought about how he could fit in.

"What stood out most to me was how much they threw the ball," said Sutton. "There was a lot of drops, but I can see where I could fit in," he continued.

Sutton played in a run oriented offense as a junior, where his team focused mostly on their star running back, DarMontre Warr (2000 yard rusher). However Sutton managed to lead the team in receiving with 26 catches for 418 yards and two touchdowns. Sutton's natural ability is enough for several schools to have taken notice.

"Right now Illinois and Kentucky have been on me the hardest," said Sutton. "Both came by (yesterday) to watch me work out and they want me to call them later on. "They are my leaders so far. Western Kentucky, Marshall and three other small D-1 schools came by too. Things are definitely picking up a lot," he continued.

Sutton visited Kentucky, Louisville and Illinois this spring and was invited to some other places, but he won't take anymore visits until this summer.
