PA receiver claims two offers

Wide receiver James O'Quinn out of Vandergrift (Pa.) Kiski Area School has started gaining offers. The 6-foot-2, 170-pounder holds two scholarships from the MAC and thinks more could be coming.
"I went to five camps and out of them two schools offered," he said. "Last year I didn't go anywhere, but this year I did and now people are starting to notice me.
"I've got offers so far from Toledo and Buffalo. I believe Eastern Michigan and Akron are planning to offer soon too."
What does O'Quinn think about his offers so far?
"I'm just going to wait it out to have a variety of choices and make a decision at the end of the season," he said. "I think the Toledo offer is a pretty good one though."
Numerous other schools have taken notice of the Keystone prospect.
"I'm also hearing from Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Georgia Tech and there are others I can't remember," he stated. "A lot of those said they'll likely offer too, but they are waiting on my SAT and tape. I'm just starting to send them my highlight tapes."
At this point, a few schools have caught the attention of O'Quinn.
"I do like Pittsburgh, Akron and Eastern Michigan," he said. "Pitt and Akron are close and I've liked Eastern Michigan's team for a little while.
"In general, I'm just looking for a good education. I don't plan on going to the NFL, so I want to get that degree and play for a good team with fans. I want to be closer to home too since I only have my mom. I want her to come to my games."
