Tulsa (Okla.) Washington wide receiver Quentin Chaney is being recruited by schools across the country. The talented athlete also has his choice of sports to pick from.
“I am getting recruited for both football and basketball,” the 6-foot-6, 205-pound Chaney said. “I really enjoy playing both sports. I’m eager to see how the recruiting process goes. How everything plays out will depend on which sport I decide to have my focus on in college.”
Chaney currently has scholarship offers for football from Arkansas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Kansas State, USC, Missouri, Texas Tech, Nebraska and Texas A&M.
“Those schools have all let me visit with them about the possibility of playing basketball in addition to football,” the three-star rated receiver said. “It’s nice to have that out of the way already. They haven’t discouraged me from looking at both sports.”
While the list of schools that are looking at football and would allow basketball is long, the group of just basketball schools is beginning to grow.
“Recently Illinois and Connecticut have started to recruit me,” he said. “Those two are looking at me for just basketball right now. I’ve been playing basketball all summer in tournaments here and there. Schools have been seeing me at those tournaments. That is what is increasing the interest at this point.”
Chaney is the nation’s No. 14 rated athlete according to Rivals.com and is one of Oklahoma’s top prep hoopsters as well.
“I’m not going to rush into a decision,” he said. “I plan to decide which sport to focus on first. Then I will take all of the visits before making a decision. I just want to find a place I am comfortable with and one I can fit in. I will be spending four years at this school, so taking my time is just fine.”
