Quan Weeks talks Wake Forest
"One of the Wake Forest coaches invited me to come up last weekend," said Quan Weeks. "They asked me if I can play safety. I told them there's no doubt about it. It was a pretty good all-around visit. Wake Forest is a great school with not too many students. It seems well-suited for learning."
Weeks, however, emerged as a tackling machine at the 'Mike' linebacker position. He believes he can play it at the next level.
"I'm doing everything I can to be recruited as a linebacker," Weeks stated. "I've gained 15 pounds since the season ended. I improved this year on my foot work, tackling, and dropping back in coverage. I had 179 tackles, and I think between 110 and 115 of those were solo."
Weeks has hit most of the schools in the Carolinas this spring. Jaylen Miller, a defensive end who is also recruited by Wake Forest, and cousin, Reco Smith are usually along for the ride.
"There are about five of us who go with Coach George, our linebackers coach, on visits," Weeks explained. "I've been to Clemson, UNC, Wake Forest, N.C. State, and South Carolina. I'm hearing a lot from LSU, but I'll probably have to wait until my senior year when I can take my official visits to make it down there."
The Gaffney Indians came up just a touchdown short against Byrnes in the state final game. The Indians were previously undefeated and had beaten Byrnes by 22 during the regular season. Weeks was named 4A All-State in 2011. He did get a state championship in March when the Gaffney basketball team defeated Lexington in overtime.
