RECRUITING: Texas' best-kept secret?

Katy, Texas athlete Quieto Teasley has an offer from Wisconsin and others and is starting to draw interest from Oklahoma.


Quieto Teasley may be one of the best kept secrets in Texas, but by the end of the season a number of college coaches are going to know all about him.

Teasley will be a three-year starter at running back and also started in the secondary last year. However, he likes playing running back the best. As a sophomore Teasley rushed for 930 yards and 10 touchdowns and then last year he went over 1,000 yards and scored 15 touchdowns.

"Running back is more challenging for me," Teasley said. "You have to visualize your moves and you have to know what you are doing to beat the defense. There is more to it than to just to (go) out there and hit somebody in defense. I think I can be both a speed back and a power back, and I think that plays into my advantage. On defense, I am a corner and free safety and I feel I can cover just about any receiver."

Teasley can bench 275 pounds and he has a 35-inch vertical jump. This spring Teasley went to the Nike combine at LSU and he plans to attend the OU and Texas A&M summer camp.

Kansas, Pittsburgh, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Texas Tech and Tulsa have offered Teasley a scholarship so far.

"I also have heard from Oklahoma and they have a great interest in me," Teasley said. "I don't really know what to think about Oklahoma, because they want me to play DB. Don't know if I want to play DB in college, so I am unsure about OU right now. I do like them.... and I am considering what they are saying to me. I really like Texas, but I haven't heard from them. They told my coach that they are waiting until after track season to contact me."
