Bruins Still In Mix for Quick

The Fresno (Calif.) Central receiver, Michiah Quick, is still considering the Bruins...

Fresno (Calif.) receiver Michiah Quick (6-0, 175), has offers from coast to coast, and the five-star isn't tiring of the process, despite getting offers for well over a year.

"The process is outstanding," said Quick. "The colleges that are recruiting me are presenting me with an amazing opportunity. I really appreciate everything the process has brought me."

With double-digit offers, there are still a handful of schools that Quick is hoping to see add to the mix.

"I really want that Alabama offer, that would be an honor to know I'm wanted there, they're the champs," said Quick. "And an offer from Miami would be nice to have under my belt, they have a great tradition and history. And of course, the Oregon offer, I'd love that one. I talk to B.J. Kelley (a former Central receiver and current Duck) every single day, and when he comes to Fresno we always hang out. He's putting in a good word for me."

Quick said he has a top five, but it's not completely set in stone.

"I have a top five but it can be flexible," said Quick. "Since I have another year, I'm taking everything in so if a new school comes along that I like better I would be able to switch it. I mean, honestly, I'm considering all schools right now, but anything that comes in, I'll take it in and weight it."

Quick's top five has a couple of schools he's looking for an offer from and three others that already have.

"My top five, without order, is Oregon, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, Alabama and USC," said Quick. "And if I had to choose a top seven, Cal and UCLA would be in it."

With teammates signing last month with Oklahoma and UCLA, Quick saw the variety of decisions from his teammates. Hatari Byrd decided in July that he would sign with Oklahoma, Johnny Johnson committing to UCLA in mid-January and L.J. Moore announcing and signing with Oklahoma on Signing Day.

"When the time is right, when I feel it, I'll announce my decision," said Quick. "I may not do it as early as Hatari or as early as L.J. did but maybe like around when Johnny did. I'll definitely take my trips though."

Quick is an elite receiver but is also an excellent defensive back, and playing for longtime defensive back coach Tony Perry, one of the best positional coaches in prep football, Quick has a lot of schools asking him which side he prefers.

"I get that question all the time," said Quick. "Every time a coach asks me that, I ask if it's ok if I play both sides of the ball and they say yes. But if it doesn't work out I will take my chances on the offense side of the ball and return kicks and punts. My heart is on offense."

Quick plans a busy next few months, with more 7on7 tournaments with DB Guru as well as the Oakland NFTC.

"I want to get invited to The Opening," said Quick.
