********* Interview from April 12, 2002 *********

Inside Carolina: Thank you for talking with us Quinton. What would you like to be called?
Quinton Person: You can call me Quint or "Q".

IC: How did you like the NIKE camp?
Person: I liked it. I wanted to see how I measured up against the best players in the Southeast. I felt like I was one of the better players there but overall I thought my performance was just ok.

IC: What are you looking for in a school?
Person: Location is important to me in that I would like to get away from Greenville but not to far away. Naturally I want to go somewhere that I can get a good education. I also want to go where I have a chance of playing and contributing to the team.

IC: Do you have a favorite school right now?
Person: I am just looking around right now so I am not really ready to name a favorite..

IC: What would you like to major in?
Person: Maybe accounting or engineering. I am not really sure at this point.

IC: Have you met the staff at UNC?
Person: Yes I have met the entire staff.

IC: How did you like them?
Person: I liked them. They were very nice and kind.

IC: Did they say what position that they were recruiting you for?
Person: That was the good thing about Carolina. They were willing to look at me at a variety of positions like RB, DB, or WR. Wherever I could help the team. Other schools were looking at me strictly as a DB.

IC; Did you have a favorite school growing up?
Person: UNC

IC: What did you think of the Carolina campus, facilities, and stadium?
Person: It's a beautiful place. I like the way it looks now and I understand that they are looking to improve it.

IC: Do you participate in other sports?
Person: Yes, I play basketball and run track.

IC: Which schools would you say are recruiting you the hardest right now?
Person: I'd say ECU, UNC, Va, and NCSU are all recruiting me the hardest.

IC: When do you think that you might decide?
Person: I want to see what my options are so I will probably wait until after the summer to see who offers me but I want to go ahead and make a decision before football season starts. I want to be able to focus on my grades and football and not have to worry about choosing a school.
