Wheeler Focusing On Season

Wheeler Focusing On Season

Ouachita High (La) QB Quentin Wheeler is currently holding two firm offers heading into fall football practice. The "6-0",190- pound senior is done with summer camps, where does he stand on his list of programs interested?

" Right now, I still hold offers from ULL and Southern Miss," Wheeler stated. "They've stayed in contact with me and continue to show that they want me to play in their programs. I have several other schools still interested right now, but I'm done with summer camps and focused on getting ready for the upcoming season."

Wheeler was named to the First Team All-District 1-5A at quarterback after the 2010 season. His athleticism in the spread offense is what led to the offers from UL and Southern Miss. Where do the Ragin' Cajuns and Golden Eagles stand with him?

"I like both programs right now," said Quentin. "It's probably not fair to say where each stand with me because I haven't made it down to Southern Miss yet and I camped at ULL. But both programs were the first to offer me, so they will stay at the top until after this season is over."

What did Quentin see at UL that impressed him and who do they compare to the college football programs in his area?

"I like what they have done with their program's facilities," Wheeler stated. "They already remodeled in some areas and are working on adding some nice improvements very soon. I've compared them some to Louisiana Tech and ULM because those programs are in my back-yard. They compare well to either of those programs in my book."

How does Wheeler feel he fits in UL's offensive system?

"They've told me I will fit perfectly in the spread system they are going to run," said Quentin. "Coaches (Lovings and Johnson) they really want me in the program, so I know where I stand with them. The offense is definitely a fit for me."

Quentin Wheeler still has some work to do on his ACT score, but he is confident that he will raise that score.

"I made a 16 on my last ACT test,"Wheeler stated. "But I'm enrolled in a ACT prep class in August and I positive that I will raise my score on the test. I've done well in the classroom, but I've just struggled in taking standardized testing."
