Eatmon Talking Visits
Quinterrius Eatmon profile Earlier this month Quinterrius had the honor of representing his home state in the annual Mississippi/Alabama All-Star game. "It was fun," said Eatmon of the experience. "We were there a whole week and we had practice a couple of times a day. I got a chance to meet a lot of the top ranked recruits." The talented offensive lineman belives he represented himself well and that he proved he belonged among the group of All-Stars. "I think I did okay down there," said Eatmon. "We didn't have a lot of time to prepare. Some of the things we do at my school are a little different, but I feel like I did pretty good." The Vigor product was impressed by some of the players he played with and against during the event. "John Propst was real good. LaDarius Owens was really good and Kenneth Carter looked good," said Quinterrius. "I knew some of the Mississippi players like the two big tackles from Olive Branch (Damien Robinson and Shon Coleman). I got to meet them at Alabama's camp." The Mobile standout currently has his course set for South Florida once he graduates from high school, but he has not completely shut the door on his college recruitment. "Things are still good with South Florida," said Eatmon. "I am going to take my visit and then make everything official. I would say I am really a soft verbal until I get down there. I have never been there before." Quinterrius is anxious to take in the sights and get to know the lay of the land at USF. "I want to see the facilities, the dorm and the weight room. I want to see how everything is located," said Eatmon. "I want to see where I am going to class. I want to major in forensics and business." While the Bulls earned the big man's early pledge, an SEC school is working towards luring him into their committed fold. "Mississippi State is still recruiting me pretty hard," said Quinterrius. "I don't know a lot about them, but I talk to them every once in a while." Eatmon put himself on the Bulldogs' radar when he visited there this summer. "I went to a camp down there, but I didn't get to take the tour. I was a little late getting there," said Quinterrius. "I am most likely going to take a visit down there, but I haven't set a date yet." Over the course of the last few weeks, Eatmon has had the chance to get to know offensive line coach John Hevesy. "Coach Hevesy is recruiting me from up there now," said Quinterrius. "He said I have good feet to be so big. He said I need to lose some weight, but he feels like I could come in there and make an impact." Eatmon reports that he plans to make a final decision some time late in January. "I will know by signing day for sure, but I am going to take my visits and then make a decision," said Quinterrius. "My family wants me to go where I want to go and that's what I am trying to figure out now."
