Quinn impressed at the resent MSL/Insiders Combine at the University of Cincinnati. He is a very well built and athletic receiver with a frame that could easily add more weight. He has amazing control of his body for being so big.
The only question is, will he play WR or TE?
"I'm being looked at as both. I prefer WR. It just depends how much more I grow. Pittsburgh likes me as both. I think they want to see if I can be a big WR, or if I'm better suited to play TE," said Quinn.
Richard had 12 catches for 254 yards in 2003. Maple Heights offensive scheme shifts him from being split out to playing the TE spot in other formations, he is very versatile. He is planning camp trips to Pittsburgh (June 18th), Michigan State, Michigan, North Carolina and Iowa. Pittsburgh and Iowa are the current front-runners followed by Indiana, Wisconsin, and Michigan State.
How was his trip to Pittsburgh?
"I attended the spring game at Pittsburgh. The facilities are great. I really liked the coaching staff, especially coach Harris. Pittsburgh has been a consistent winner over the last few years."
Quinn has scored 18 on the ACT and is a 2.5 student. He has taken unofficial trips to Pittsburgh, North Carolina, Michigan State, Duke, West Virginia, Cincinnati, Akron, and Toledo.
Iowa seems to be the team the Panthers will have to beat.
"They send lot's of letters. We have a mentorship program at Maple Heights and we work with former Hawkeye and now Cleveland Browns WR CJ Brown. He tells me a lot about Iowa. He and coach Rotsky take us to the Browns facility and they give us instruction on fundamentals, speed and strength training, and how to become better players."
"I'm 50/50 on it right now. Part of me wants to commit and get it over with before the season and part of me want's to wait and see."
