Quinn locks it down for Mississippi Delta

Mississippi Delta always has talent on both sides of the ball and CB Torenzo Quinn (5-11, 180) is a lock-down defender who feels comfortable in man-to-man or zone. With his speed and aggressiveness, he's already started to hear from several schools and he's hoping a big sophomore season leads to some offers down the road.

Quinn prepped at Rule High School in Ruleville, Mississippi and was a standout at running back. He was hearing from schools across the south including the two in-state schools, but he didn't receive a qualifying test score so he chose to continue his football career at Delta.

"I played running back in high school, but all the schools recruiting me liked me at corner," Quinn told JCFootball.com recently. "Because of my build and my quickness, they all liked me on 'D' and when I didn't qualify out of high school, I decided to come here to Delta to work on my grades and on learning corner so that's why I'm here right now."

After redshirting in 2006, Quinn posted solid numbers for the Trojans managing to haul in five interceptions while also wracking up 32 tackles.

This summer, Quinn has been all about working on his overall game and honing the finer points of playing out on the island.

"I've been working on my footwork and just my overall technique and knowledge of corner," Quinn said. "I have speed (4.4), but in my mind, if you have technique you don't need anything else, so that's really been my focus this summer."

On the recruiting front, Quinn has heard from several schools, but no offers have been forthcoming so far.

"I've been getting mail from almost every school in the country, but the four that have kept in touch with me the most are Ole Miss, Mississippi State, UAB and Memphis," Quinn said. "All of them said they like me a lot as a player, but they want to see some more film so I'm just going to be patient.

"Location is probably the biggest thing for me because of my family and I have two kids too, so I'd like to be close to them. I also want to make sure the scheme fits me. I can play zone or man-to-man, but I want to go to a school that plays more man-to-man because I love the challenge of it just being me and the receiver out there and may the best man win."

Quinn is on pace to graduate in December and he'll have two years to play two wherever he ends up.
