After suffering an MCL tear at the end of his junior year, Whitehouse safety Quincy Aldridge has made a full recovery and is starting to turn heads again this spring. Texas A&M running backs coach and East Texas area recruiter, Randy Jordan, made an appearance at Whitehouse High School last week to catch Aldridge in action during spring practice. According to the 6-foot-2, 190 pounder, an offer from A&M could be heading his way soon.

"He came Thursday to watch me," said Aldridge. "He said he is trying to speed up the recruiting process. I think they may offer me soon."

If the Aggies do offer Aldridge, don't expect him to shut the recruiting process down.

"I still want to keep my options open," Aldridge stated."They were one of the first schools I visited so there is a lot of interest on my part. I wouldn't say an offer from A&M would shoot them to the top but it would put them close to the top. There are a couple of schools that I really want offers from."

The two schools Aldridge is referring to include his childhood favorite and the defending National Champions.

"Alabama and Miami are the two schools I really want offers from. The main one I'm looking for is Alabama. I would probably shut it down right there and commit to them if they were to offer."

Quincy will have a busy summer attending multiple camps over the next few months.

"I have a few camps I'll be going to. A&M has a camp the first week of June that I'll be attending. The coaches want to evaluate me and see if I am better fit for the Sam linebacker position or safety. I'm ok with either one."

"SMU wants me to come to their camp in Kilgore. I talked to their defensive coordinator and he said they are close to offering me. TCU has one the day after so I'll probably be attending that one too."

Quincy feels he is close to being fully recovered from his knee injury.

"I'm not 100 percent yet," said the Notre Dame offeree. "My right knee is probably stronger than my left one now. I've been working out with a trainer every day and the stuff they have me doing is helping me recover quickly."
