Quincy Driver, the star wide-out for Houston (Texas) Lamar, committed to Texas A&M early last summer. As a senior, he’s had to be patient with new quarterbacks adjusting to Lamar’s system.
While he remains committed to the Aggies, the nephew of Green Bay Packers wide-out Donald Driver is also considering other schools, and trying to get a qualifying score on his college board exams.
“Well, right now so far that’s [Texas A&M] where I’m going to go, so far,” Driver said. “I’ve been talking to Houston and Miami I was talking to them, but I haven’t talked to them lately, so I’m going to give them a call and talk to them also. I’m probably going to start giving them a call next week, and I’ll start going to a couple games, too.”
No matter where the interest and scholarship offers are from, Driver still has to face concerns over his academic eligibility. He has yet to take the SAT, and didn’t get his registration for the November test in to officials until after the deadline to sign up had passed. As such, he will take the December test to try to meet the qualifying standard for the NCAA.
“I have no offers except for A&M,” Driver said. “I think when I take my SAT, that’s when they’ll start rolling in. I waited too late to register for November, but I’ll take the December test. That might be what’s holding some schools back.”
Even if he did get interest from other schools, Drivre may not reconsider his college decision, barring a major development from one of his other favorite schools.
“I would probably consider Miami if they gave me an offer, but other than that I like A&M,” Driver said.
The speedy receiver is part of a dynamic pass catching duo for Lamar, teaming with Division-I prospect Brandon LaFell. Though their reception and yardage numbers are slightly down this year because of Lamar’s younger quarterbacks, both continue to make big impact plays in their games. Driver has 18 catches for 348 yards and five touchdowns, while LaFell also has 18 catches, totaling 511 yards and eight touchdowns through the air. LaFell also has four touchdowns on kick returns this year.
“Our quarterbacks were just under some stress because it was their first season,” Driver said. “They’re both sophomores, but since then we’ve been patient and they’ve gotten better. Now they’re pretty good, and I still think we’re a little underrated.”
