Three on top for Miami ATH
Miami (Fla.) Jackson athlete Quinton Flowers suffered a tough loss on Thursday night to RivalsHigh 100 No. 1 Miami (Fla.) Booker T. Washington. Flowers had a rough game, completing 3 of 18 passes for 56 yards and one touchdown with three interceptions. He wants to forget his last outing and focus on the rest of the season and making his college decision.
The three-star athlete said his top three schools are Marshall, Nebraska, and USF. He expects to take a visit to Texas at some point.
Two weeks ago, he was in Lincoln to see the Cornhuskers defeat Southern Miss. Flowers enjoyed the trip and watching the Huskers offense.
"I watched Taylor Martinez," Flowers said. "He plays just like me. I sat in on the coaches meetings with him and saw how he talked to the coaches and I'm trying to bring it back with me. The atmosphere was a big change. I thought it was a dream when I walked back in the locker room."
Fellow Floridian Brandon Powell, a Miami commit, was on his official visit as well. Flowers said it would be nice having a local prospect up there with him should both players end up at Nebraska.
USF is still in search of a quarterback for this class after Flowers decommitted from the Bulls back in the summer.
"Me and coach (Telly) Lockette stay in contact," noted Flowers. "I always call him to see how he's doing and to check up on the team and the coaches. At the same time, I still have to do me and take it step by step and game by game, and I hope he does the same."
Marshall is trying to get him on campus for a visit. He is familiar with the Thundering Herd roster and starting quarterback Rakeem Cato, who hails from Miami.
Flowers said he would likely make a decision after the season. Last year he led his team to a semi-final appearance in Class 5A.
