No Leader for Quinn

Defensive end Robert Quinn is one of the hottest prospects in the nation, and he is quickly adding new offers.

"My most recent offer came from Louisville," said Quinn. "They told me recently that they really wanted me and they had a spot for me if I wanted it. I've got 13 offers now but I'm not ready to narrow things down."

It might be a while before Quinn does narrow his list. He said that he will not make his decision before the end of his senior season, and he is likely to wait until around Signing Day. Does the Pack have a shot?

"I don't really know too much about NC State, but they've been recruiting me pretty hard," he said. "I've talked to their coaching staff. They came down and talked to me a while back, so I know they're interested. It's pretty much the same with them as it is with everyone else right now. I'll let this thing go for a little while, see what happens, then narrow my list before I take my officials."

In addition to NC State and Louisville, Quinn is considering schools like Auburn, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, Clemson and Virginia Tech, among others. He has taken unofficial visits or camped at South Carolina, Tennessee and North Carolina, but is not ready to name a favorite.

At 6-4 and 255-pounds, Quinn runs the 40-yard dash in 4.78 seconds and has good quickness. He is not sure what position he will be playing in college.

"I'm getting different signals from schools right now. Some are saying defensive end and some are saying linebacker. Most just haven't said one way or the other for sure. I know Auburn wants me to play in sort of a combo role, defensive end and linebacker, and Maryland wants me as a linebacker. Aside from that, I really don't know.

"I would prefer to play linebacker, but that's not going to keep me from picking a school that would put me on the line."

The junior from Fort Dorchester (S.C.) North Charleston is a four star prospect according to Scout.com.
