Four offers for Quinerly

NORFOLK, Va. -- Nyhre Quinely is one of the top junior cornerbacks in Virginia. The Lake Taylor star spoke with Scout.com about his recruitment, season and more.

"I have four offers – Massachusetts, Wisconsin, JMU and UVa," said Nhyre Quinerly.

Virginia was the latest school to offer.

"I found out about the UVa offer from my coach," said the 5-foot-11, 180-pound Quinerly. "It makes me want to work harder.

"(Cornerbacks coach) Chip West told him about the offer. I've known him for a long time. I like him and he's down-to-earth."

Football is not the only aspect of Virginia that appeals to Quinerly.

"It's a great school academically," he said. "Football doesn't last long, so you have to think about the rest of your life."

Other schools are also showing interest in the Lake Taylor standout.

"Maryland came by the school recently and I've talked to them," Quinerly said. "They want me to come up and see the facilities. I'd like to go to a game up there,too.

"North Carolina, South Carolina, Vanderbilt, Penn State and Duke are also sending me a lot of mail."

Despite all the interest, Quinerly claims no favorites.

"I'm interested in all schools," Quinerly said. "I don't have any favorite schools. I just want to play football.

For now, Quinerly is focused on having a strong finish to his junior campaign.

"Winning a state championship is our main goal – it's on our mine," Quinerly said. "It's going to take everybody – offense, defense, special teams, scout team and fans."
