Quinn Enjoys Return Visit

Scout.com four-star prospect Robert Quinn made his rescheduled return visit to North Carolina over the weekend.

"It was nice," said Quinn. "I'm glad I got a chance to get back up there so I can knock out some of these schools and narrow down my list. And then I'll work from there.

"I liked it; I just liked it up there."

Quinn, a 6-foot-4 240-pound defensive end from North Charleston (S.C.) Fort Dorchester, attended UNC's spring game in April. While he enjoyed the visit, it left some questions and thus prompted a return trip.

Originally, Quinn was slated to revisit in late July, but a scheduling conflict forced him to postpone.

Early Saturday morning, Quinn and his family arrived on campus just in time for UNC's scrimmage.

"It seems like [the team] is ready to get out there," said Quinn. "It's like everybody said, they're tired of hitting their own teammates and they want to hit somebody else."

During his previous visit to UNC, Quinn didn't receive a guided tour of the campus. Therefore the coaching staff made sure he was given a detailed tour of the football facilities and rest of the campus.

"It's a beautiful campus," said Quinn. "You've got a mixture of everything, like the people.

"I got to meet some of the players. Everybody seems to get along there. I liked that."

Quinn then got to sit down with Butch Davis.

"He was telling me about his life story," said Quinn. "How he won at all these other places.

"I can see them winning with [Davis] – I really do."

The remainder of Quinn's stay was spent with primary recruiter Sam Pittman and defensive line coach John Blake.

"Coach Blake told me how he could make me a better player," said Quinn. "Even though Coach Pittman coaches the O-line and Coach Blake coaches the D-line, they seem real cool together. That lets me know that Coach Blake is true. He's going to tell you no lies."

Quinn left campus with his questions answered and some pretty good feelings for UNC.

"I like the place," said Quinn. "Now it's time for me to sit down and narrow down my list and see what happens after that."

Quinn, who has collected over 15 scholarship offers, figures to narrow his list of options down to five to seven schools. However, he doesn't have a deadline for that task.

"[I'll be looking at] education program, how they can help me out, and the family atmosphere," said Quinn.

Over the course of the last few months, Quinn has unofficially visited Auburn, Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Maryland, Rutgers, and South Carolina.
