There are several Ohio wide receivers who may not be getting much press now but likely will before recruiting is over. One of those is Richard Quinn of Maple Heights, who is getting some attention from big programs.

Wide Receiver Richard Quinn of Maple Heights is one of the true sleepers in the state this year. He's getting some serious looks early on.

"I've been invited to Iowa, Michigan State, West Virginia, North Carolina, and Pitt," he said. "Iowa and North Carolina are talking about offers."

Now that things are picking up recruiting-wise, Quinn is starting to get into the recruiting process a bit more.

"I am now taking this more seriously now that I'm getting to see schools," he said. "I can see where things are starting to happen. I can make things happen for myself. I am now seeing that it is possible."

Quinn took in the Michigan State spring game ("I saw that they throw the ball a lot," he said) and plans on camping at North Carolina, Duke, and Michigan State. 

He has fine WR size and is working on getting even better.

"I'm 6-4, 220," he said. "I do a 4.6. I think I can do better than that though. I'm benching about 295. 

"I'm at a 2.5 core. (On the ACT) I made an 18 my first time. I plan on taking it again."

With that size, is TE a possibility?

"I played a little tight end, so I can work with that," he said. "I don't know if I will commit early, it depends on who offers."

What will be the factors in his decision?

"I want to major in sports medicine or computer science, so education is a priority," he said. "And the weather. If I have the option, I'd like to play in warm weather."

Any favorites right now?

"Michigan State, Pitt and North Carolina," Quinn said.
