Quick Is Taking Time With Process
Pierce Quick won’t be able to get to Notre Dame as quickly as the Irish hoped, but the 2019 Alabama offensive lineman does plan on making it to South Bend at some point.
“I was going to go up there for their Sophomore Day,” the 6-foot-5, 285-pounder said, referring to Notre Dame’s event for top 2019 targets the first week of April.
“But I have the Under Armour All-American Camp in Atlanta.”
The Hewitt-Trussville High School standout isn’t sure when he’ll be able to make it, but does want to eventually.
“My coach is the one who has been really talking to their coaches, so I just talk with him to see what they’ve been saying,” said Quick.
“So far, he just said they wanted to get me there for their Sophomore Day and to talk to me and get to know me. Since I’m not able to come, they want me to come to campus another time.”
Quick doesn’t know a ton about Notre Dame yet, but does know enough to be interested.
“I don’t really know that much,” he acknowledged. “I know they have a lot of great tradition behind their program. I know South Bend is a beautiful place and I’d love to get there.
“I definitely want to see the stadium, the facilities they have there and their academic center and everything they have there.”
Quick already has an impressive offer sheet that includes schools like Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Oregon and Tennessee among others.
“It’s crazy, but it’s a dream come true,” said Quick. “I’ve been dreaming of having this many offers since I was a little kid. For it to start so young, it’s awesome.”
Still, he’d love to add one from Notre Dame.
“It would be a big-time offer for sure,” he said. “It would be a top school for me for sure.”
Coaches like the total package Quick brings as an offensive tackle.
“They like how athletic I am for an offensive lineman, how big I am, how aggressive I am on the field and how I play until the whistle blows every single play,” he said.
He’s already made trips to Alabama, Auburn, Clemson and LSU with stops at Georgia and Vanerbilt expected next.
“They’ve all been great,” said Quick. “They’ve been wonderful. I’ve been to Auburn twice in the past month and that’s been great. I went to Alabama during the season and I went there again on the 25 and that was great. I’m going to go back for their spring game. I love all of them.”
He says no school is sticking out above the others yet.
“They’re all equal right now and I’m just going to let it play out for a little while,” he said.
“It’s going to be like which school feels like a home to me. When I walk in there and it feels like a home, it’s going to be what my parents think about it, how the academics are and just the feeling, how it feels there.”
