Trey Quinn, who once threw a no-hitter in the 2008 Little League World Series, is one of the top receivers in the nation and has all the skill to back up his rankings. He is the third wide receiver by ESPN and 14th by Rivals. Many believe he can succeed anywhere because of his sticky hands, and his 6-foot-1, 200-pound frame would suggest he can take hits and make plays in traffic as well.
Quinn attends Barbe High School in Lake Charles, Louisiana. They were among the top teams in the state last season, going 13-2, including a loss in the Class 5A State Championship game. Quinn was no doubt the straw that stirred the offense, catching 115 passes for over 2141 yards, with 26 touchdowns to go with it. He has been the go-to player on the team for each of his three seasons in uniform for the Barbe Buccaneers. He will undoubtedly enter the season with a target on his back as teams do everything they can to keep him from getting the football.
The top choices for Quinn appear to be LSU, where his dad attended, and Clemson, who has sported a high-powered offense over the last couple of seasons. He has also not ruled out Auburn, among other schools with recent histories of throwing the football. Many are under the impression that it’s LSU’s commitment to lose, and the only way they will lose him is if Quinn’s convinced that LSU can’t be the type of offense he wants to be a part of. It will be interesting to see who he chooses, as he plans to pick a school by early August at the latest.
