One of the top cornerbacks from the state of Florida is Khiry McQuay. McQuay started off his high school career at Seffner (Fla.) Armwood before transferring to Hillsborough. Now he's back at Armwood once again.
"I had a good spring back here," McQuay said. "It's like I never left. I got bigger and I am now 5-9 and 170 pounds. Last season I was closer to 5-8 and 160 pounds. I just feel bigger, strong and even faster than ever before."
Armwood beat Durant in their spring game 32-3. In a quarter of action McQuay at three tackles and a pass break up.
In terms of recruiting, McQuay says he's unclear as to who has offered and who has not. He's leaving that up to his father and his high school coach.
"I know Duke has offered and Nebraska has verbally offered. I know teams like UCLA, Syracuse, Alabama, Maryland and Vanderbilt are recruiting me. They are close to offering me. At least I think they are. I am just trying to get all that stuff together. I think teams out there are just trying to figure me out a little bit and wondering what kind of person I am."
McQuay also stated early on in the process that Florida State was his leader. He believes that declaration scared some teams away.
"I do. And I do like FSU. But I am also open to a lot of school. I like North Carolina. I like Troy. Heck, I can see myself playing at Troy. That's a team where I can make a big impact at. We'll see what all happens."
He has visited Boston College and Florida State. He hopes to see Rutgers, Alabama, North Carolina and Indiana this summer.
McQuay is also one of the state's fastest players. He has run a 10.7 100 meters this season as well as a 21.7 200 meters.
