Quinn Enrolled

Sticking with an objective he formulated a while back, Richard Quinn of Maple Heights (Ohio) has forgone his final high school semester and enrolled in North Carolina for the spring semester.

"Richard has already enrolled," stated Quinn's father, Richard Sr. "He was just inspired to start school early and get a jump on things with football since he had the opportunity. He had accomplished everything that he wanted to accomplish in high school."

Although Quinn, who committed to North Carolina in early September, had considered enrolling early for quite some time, he didn't solidify the decision until about three weeks ago.

Despite the distance from his family, Quinn hasn't yet gotten home sick – being from a Marine Corps family he's used to traveling – and has explained to his father how in the short time, Chapel Hill easily feels like a second home.

"He loves it," his father explained. "All the coaches gave him a warm welcome. He's fitting in fine."

While playing wide receiver and defensive end for Maple Heights, Quinn earned both offensive and defensive player of the year honors for his high school. His fathered revealed that his 6-foot-4, 220-pound son figures to fit in at either wide receiver or tight end for the Tar Heels.
