Austin Quillen Profile
Quillen committed to the Commodores back on April 12th. He has visited Nashville a few times since his commitment and he plans to make it back to Nashville as many times as possible. Not only does he plan to visit but he will also have his ears glued to what is happening in Nashville and how his future college team is performing.
“I am excited to see how Vanderbilt does this season and you can bet I will be paying attention,” he said. “I want to make it to every game but I know that will be tough. I will try my best to get out there as many times as I can but I will be paying attention to everything that goes on with them.”
The Vanderbilt might have found themselves a steal in Quillen. The 6-foot, 195 pound safety is a physical, hard hitter with enough speed to cover. He has SEC abilities and might fit perfect within the Commodores' defensive scheme.
Quilen himself sees the fit at Vanderbilt. His athletic abilities on the football field are not the only fit. His smarts inside the classroom fit well too.
“I completely solid with my commitment because not only do I see a fit on the football team but I can also achieve a great education from the university,” said Quillen. “I like how Coach (Derek) Mason is running the defense now. I think he will do a great job and he, along with Coach (Marc) Mattoli, is a big reason I committed to them. The fit for me is there not only as a football player but a student as well.”
His college status has been put away for a while now so the only thing Quillen has been focusing on is his conditioning and continued progress as a football player.
Quillen plays for one of the best high school football programs in the state of Oklahoma. Jenks is a state title contender every season and the 2015 campaign is no different.
The final season of Quillen's Jenks career is upcoming. He believes he has prepared hard this summer for his senior year and he believes his team has as well.
“I have put in a lot of time this summer trying to get fully conditioned and completely ready because this is my last year with my high school teammates and nothing else is on our mind other than winning a state championship,” Quillen said. “Every season is big but this year is the biggest. It’s my last year here so I want to go out strong and head off to college as a state champion. I am prepared to lead my team in anyway I have to, so whatever I have to do to win, I am willing to do it.”
Quillen has a lot of traits for the captain role in college. His combination of size, strength, speed and smarts bodes well for Vanderbilt as they may have found a gem of a recruit from the Sooner State.
