Chaney takes in first college game

Tulsa (Okla.) Booker T. Washington three-star athlete/receiver Quentin Chaney is one of the nation’s top-recruited athletes. It’s mainly because of his 6-foot-6, 205-pound frame and his untapped physical ability. So it’s no surprise that he’s becoming one of the most fought after targets in the Midlands Region. But with an unofficial visit this weekend did one team step forward?
“I was at Oklahoma this weekend,” Chaney, ranked as the nation’s No. 14 athlete by Rivals.com, said. “I went with my mom and my dad. It was a lot of fun. We went down for a game last year, so it wasn’t a totally new experience for me. But it was really great to experience the atmosphere and crowd again.”
Chaney said he also spent a while talking to the Sooner coaches.
“I talked with coach Shipp, coach Wyatt, coach Venables and coach Stoops,” Chaney said. “It was really great to talk to them. We talked about how I could fit in there and what they project I would be able to do. They weren’t pressuring me or anything and I think we all appreciated that.”
Chaney said that the visit to Norman was his only unofficial visit that he’s taken so far this fall.
When asked if the visit and the pressure of getting calls from five to 10 college coaches a day has pushed up his time table, Chaney paused and thought for a few seconds before answering.
“Sort of yes,” Chaney said. “But I’m still hoping to stick to my original plan of waiting until my season is over and taking some visits.”
But with offers on the table from Arkansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, USC, Tennessee and Texas A&M, Chaney said he’s not totally ruled out an early commitment.
The problem is to whom, though.
“I don’t even know what five schools I would visit at this point,” Chaney said. “I’m that up in the air.”
