Gautier High (MS) TE Mykhael Quave knew in his heart that the opportunity to play college with older brother Daniel Quave was just too good to pass on. The "6-4", 255 pound senior decided that he didn't need to visit Memphis or South Alabama next weekend, he had seen enough of the UL program to know they were the best fit for him to play college football.
"I knew after visiting this weekend and hanging out with Daniel that I wanted to play football at UL," Quave stated. "When we've come down to visit him, I've spent time with him and some of the other athletes around campus. There was nothing that I had not seen on campus or around town. Committing to UL was the best of both worlds for my mother and now she can come in to see both of her son's play college football."
Quave had the opportunity to meet with his position coach Reed Stringer and talk about his future in the Cajun program.
"I sat down with Coach Stringer and he told me to prepare myself to work hard," said Mykhael. "They are taking me at tight end and he said that they will block just like the offensive linemen in their offense. Once I graduate, I'm going to head down this summer with Daniel and start my summer workouts."
Mykhael had offers from UL, Memphis, South Alabama, Southern Miss and ULM. But he decided last weekend to cancel his visit to Louisiana-Monroe and focus on visit to Louisiana.
"Daniel and I have talked about playing in college together numerous times," Quave stated. "I canceled my visit to Louisiana-Monroe because I knew in my heart I didn't want to attend college up there. Playing with my brother at UL is something we've talked about for a long time and it's all going to be reality now."
Mykhael Quave stated that he is fine academically and can now focus on finishing his senior year playing basketball.
