Quick Checks Out Spring Game

Fresno (Calif.) Central five-star receiver Michiah Quick (6-0, 175), has had a busy haul the past three weekends, taking in spring games at Notre Dame, Washington and UCLA.

UCLA was this past weekend, and Quick said he enjoyed his time in Southern California.

"I had a good time at the Rose Bowl," said Quick. "The fan base was really nice, I took some pictures with some fans, and I got to talk to Coach Yarbs (receivers coach Eric Yarber) before the spring game and it was real good."

Quick had visited UCLA earlier this spring for an unofficial visit, so he didn't swing by the campus, but still got to see quite a bit.

"UCLA is definitely in the mix for me," said Quick. "I like the campus and the coaches are all pretty cool, especially the ones I communicate with like Yarbs and Meat (Demetrice Martin). I also talked with Coach (Jim) Mora for a couple of minutes. And Johnny Johnson (his Central teammate and a UCLA signee) was talking to me there."

Last weekend, Quick was in Seattle, and got a chance to check out Washington.

"That was a pretty cool trip too," said Quick. "It was my first time up there since I went to their camp last summer. They didn't have as many people up there last time, so this time was better because I got to see people on campus and go to their spring game."

Quick has an offer from the Huskies and they're working on him hard.

"Coach (Tosh) Lupoi is recruiting me and he's coming by the school soon. He called me last week and told me he's coming to see me," said Quick.

Before that was a trip to South Bend.

"Notre Dame was legit," said Quick. "That was something I'd never seen before. I had a really good time there and they want to get the ball in my hands a lot if I go there. I definitely could see myself playing there."

Quick said that he's open to just about every school.

"I could see myself everywhere, Oklahoma, Alabama, Notre Dame, Pac-12, wherever," said Quick. "It depends on how much I'll get the ball, that's what I'm looking at."

Quick said that Oregon offered him recently, and they plan to come see him.

"The new receivers coach (Matt Lubick) is going to be coming by," said Quick. "All they do there at Oregon is win and look nice doing it."

Quick said he'd like to visit Oklahoma soon, where two of his teammates, Hatari Byrd and L.J. Moore are headed.

"They really don't try to recruit me, we just talking about football and college and we're more like brothers," said Quick. "I'd be interested in Oklahoma if they were going there or not. With them, it's a family thing, they're not telling me I have to go there or anything."

Quick said every school is recruiting him as a receiver, though he could be an elite defensive back.

"Sometimes a school will say they want me both ways, but everyone is saying receiver first and no one has said just defense," said Quick.

The nation's top receiver said his next camp will be the Oakland NFTC next month.
