TCU in pursuit of Flowers

TCU in pursuit of Flowers

Miami (FL) Jackson athlete Quinton Flowers is one of the most electric players in Florida.

TCU isn't messing around when it comes to recruiting kids outside the Texas state line. With a limited number of slots available for the 2014 class, the Frogs' coaching staff has been very selective with verbal offers, which is why when they do offer, they're going after some of the top talent in the country.

That can be said about Miami (FL) Jackson wide receiver prospect Quinton Flowers. The 6-foot, 210-pounder is a four-star prospect and ranked as the No. 10 receiver in the country by FOX Sports NEXT. Flowers reports offers from Cincinnati, East Carolina, Marshall, Ole Miss, South Florida, Syracuse, UCF and recently he added one from TCU.

He's also received interest from in-state programs Miami, Florida State and Florida. Alabama and Louisville are others who have expressed interest in the playmaker.

The TCU offer came as a surprise to Flowers, who says he hasn't spoken with a coach from TCU but his high school coach informed him of the offer.

"My coach told me (about the offer)," Flowers said. "I don't know the position."

Flowers doesn't know much about TCU's program, but like the other programs that have offered, he plans to learn more about them.

"Like I always say, I will sit down and do some research on it and the background," he said.

Although he's regarded as one of the top receiver prospects in the nation, Flowers is set on playing quarterback at the next level. He explains why in a recent interview with Florida field reporter Amy Campbell.

"If I play another position, I'd have to change a lot that I do. I'd have to work harder to get on the next level. That's why I keep telling people I'm not going to play receiver or free safety at the next level. Why would I switch positions if I play quarterback and I'm good at it?" he told Campbell.
