RECRUITING: Texas OL set for second trip to Norman

Garland, Texas offensive lineman J.D. Quinn says he has five favorites. Did OU make the cut?

J.D. QUINN, OL, 6'4, 269, 5.0, GARLAND, TEXAS:

Quinn is one of those rawboned offensive linemen that college coaches love. Quinn will be a three-year starter this season at offensive tackle, but he feels he will move inside in college.

"I will probably play guard or center in college because I am not one of those massive hogs like the tackles are in college," said Quinn. "In high school I am a good size, but in college I am not going to be one of the biggest guys. I like to run block but I don't think I do that any better than I pass block. I feel I do both pretty well. I graded out over 85 percent and I had 35 pancake blocks."

Quinn can bench 280 pounds, cleans 275, squats 350 and he has a 24-inch vertical jump. Last summer Quinn participated in the Texas A&M summer camp and this summer he plans to go to the Nike Camp at College Station, and the TCU and OU summer camps. TCU and Iowa State have offered Quinn at this point, but he has a solid list of colleges that he likes.

"I like anybody in the Big 12 and TCU at this point," said Quinn. "I was at Oklahoma last weekend and they have invited me back this weekend. I hope that means they like me quite a bit, because I like Oklahoma. You can say that Oklahoma is one of my frontrunners. I guess my top five, in no specific order, would be Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Texas, TCU and Iowa State."
