Riney Ready to Compete
Fort Worth (Texas) All Saints tight end Quinton Riney says that though his team's offense doesn't traditionally use a tight end, he still feels like it's the position that would best suit his skills at the next level. "We don't use the tight end a whole lot. We mostly spread out wide. But this year, I think we may be using the tight end more. But that's where I'm mainly being recruited," he said. When asked to identify his strengths on the field, the 6-foot-3, 235-pound athlete doesn't hesitate. "Arkansas was the first one to show interest, and I've talked with Oklahoma and Vanderbilt." "I like running routes and catching the ball. I think I have pretty good hands. I also like blocking," he said. Aside from off-season practice, Riney has also put in extra work to strengthen and sharpen his skills. "Since last season, I've just been putting in the work and staying busy in the weight room. I've also been running routes and catching balls with any of the guys who want to throw," he said. This summer, the athlete will attend camps in addition to competing in 7on7 play, where his team is hoping to earn a berth to the state championships in July. "Recruiting was slow until spring ball started. That's where a couple of schools came out to talk with me. Arkansas was the first one to show interest, and I've talked with Oklahoma and Vanderbilt. I've also talked to some Division-II schools," he said. Riney is familiar with the recruiting process, as his older brother, Rylan Riney, played for Texas A&M. "The Aggies are probably my number one. I love their tradition. I'd love to hear more from them, as well as more from Arkansas, TCU, Baylor, Duke, and SMU," he said.
