Quick Punches Ticket

The Fresno (Calif.) Central receiver, Michiah Quick, earns an invite to The Opening and talks about his recruitment...

Fresno (Calif.) Central five-star receiver Michiah Quick (6-0, 175), had seen his teammates Hatari Byrd and L.J. Moore go to The Opening last summer.

So when Quick arrived at the Oakland NFTC on Sunday, he was hoping to follow in their footsteps.

And his coach pulled a fast one on him.

"Coach (Tony) Perry told me that I wasn't going, that I was getting selected," said Quick. "Then like right next I see these video cameras coming up and they handed me my Golden Ticket."

Quick, was arguably the top overall offensive performer at the NFTC and not surprisingly got an invite to The Opening.

"I'm pretty excited about going to The Opening," said Quick. "I made it a point to take all the fundamentals from what I knew from my coach and my team and include it with what I learned at the Nike Camp and I think I earned it."

Quick is also earning plenty of attention from college coaches around the country, several having come through the Central Valley this spring to see him.

"The schools coming after the most aggressively are Notre Dame, Alabama, USC, UCLA and Cal," said Quick, who plans to camp at Washington.

Quick was wearing Notre Dame gloves to the NFTC, but said there wasn't any significance to them other than convenience.

"They were the ones I grabbed this morning," said Quick. "I wore the Oregon gear to Vegas so I had to change it up."

Quick said he still plans to take all five official visits and won't make a decision until the new year.
