Quinton Andrews (5-foot-11 and 190 pounds) hails from Monsignor Pace HS, in
Miami, FL. A two-way player for M. Pace, Andrews makes his living as one
of the best Safeties in the state of Florida. We had a chance to catch up with the
to discuss his thoughts on where he may be spending the next four years.
Quinton Andrews, is one of the top Safety prospects in all of Florida. That makes him one of the top S prospects in the country. TheInsiders.com ranks him as No. 41 at his position, and he has the offers to prove it.
However, his list of favorites includes two schools that have yet to offer: Florida State and Miami. The Seminoles lead over Miami. In fact, his current Top 3 schools are the ones he knows will receive official visits, after his season is complete. It is safe to say that Andrews will be awaiting to see whether two of his top three will be tendering offers - if they do, his choice of schools may result in selecting one of two or three schools, rather than loikinbg at seven or eight.
"I don't know the dates but the schools I'll be visiting are Florida State, Miami, and Georgia, probably after the season."
Andrews' Pace squad is currently 4 and 0, and has its sites set on big things. After a slow start to the season which kept Andrews out, he has begun to pick it up on the field. "I had 12 tackles and 2 sacks last week. I also had 1 pass break-up, and 4 catches for 102 yards and a touchdown." Indeed, Andrews has played on both sides of the ball this year, and has excelled at both the wide receiver and safety positions. However, he projects as a defensive back at the next level.
Rutgers had been recruiting Andrews earlier during the summer. Are the Scarlet Knights still in the picture?
"I like Rutgers. I haven't talked to them in a while though. I still receive some mail from them from time to time." While Andrews indicated that he does remain interested in the Scarlet Knights, he stated that he has not heard much of anything from the Rutgers coaches for some time now. Andrews stated that he has a firm Top 3, but still considers Rutgers and West Virginia, of the Big East, as possible destination schools.
Andrews is currently planning on taking all five of his visits before making a decision. A decision that he says will comprise of three primary characteristics: academics, football tradition, and playing time considerations.
