'I'm Ready To See It All'

Orlando (Fl.) Edgewater Offensive Tackle Quinton Brown is fresh off his first official visit, as he checked out the Florida State Seminoles last weekend.

"It went pretty good," Quinton Brown said of the visit. "I saw a lot of things that I was looking for in a school. I didn't commit, and they told me to take my time, but they told me they really needed me."

Florida State's among the final four programs competing for Brown's services. NC State, Florida, and South Carolina also made the cut and this weekend he visits the Wolfpack.

"I haven't been there yet, but from what I'm hearing it sounds like they have a place for me," said Brown. "I'm really ready to check it out.

"Coach Stroud's recruiting me, and he's a real nice guy. He talks to me a lot and let's me know what's going on.

"They are giving me the option to play either offense or defense. They are just leaving it up to me where I play. Most of the schools are recruiting me for offense, but some are saying both like NC State."

What's Brown looking for when he visits NC State?

"I'm looking forward to meeting all the players and seeing what the campus is like. I've heard good things about them so I'm ready to see it all."

After his trip to Raleigh, Brown will visit Florida (1/21) and South Carolina (1/28) before making his final decision. He admits the recruiting process hasn't been as stressful as you would think.

"It's not been too hectic because I've narrowed it down a lot," Brown said. "I'm just trying to do my best to make the right decision, but it's a good problem to have so I can't complain."

Joining Brown in Raleigh will be his Edgewater teamates, linebacker Charles Pugh and defensive back Tyller Roberts. All three prospects are extremely interested in NC State, and Brown admits they could be a package deal.

"We haven't really talked about it, but I'm pretty sure it will come up," he said. "It might happen... it's a possibility."

Entering his final three visits, Brown still favors the Wolfpack and Seminoles.

"Right now the two that are standing out the most are Florida State and NC State," he said. "They both have really good programs and have made me feel real comfortable."

Quinton Brown is fully qualified academically.
