Santa Ana (Calif) Mater Dei defensive back Quentin Lake has been a player we've been high on all spring.
Just about every time we've seen him, he's showed ability to play at a high level. Lake's UCLA ties are pretty well-known by now -- his father is former Bruin great Carnell Lake, whose position versatility as a collegian and pro were what set him apart.
And that's why Lake is so intriguing: he's 6-1, 180, but could grow into a safety, yet has pure corner skills.
During the drills at UCLA's Bruin Elite Camp, one-on-ones and 7on, he was outstanding, only giving up one catch that we remember.
He's physical at the line of scrimmage, real fluid with a quick and smooth backpedal and active hands that allowed him to break up a number of passes.
Not surprisingly, Lake was offered after the camp.
