The most recent winner of Recruit Georgia’s Play of the Day is Quin Geer out of Johns Creek High School. For the winning play, the rising junior read the QB’s eyes perfectly in zone coverage and broke on the pass for a pick-six, showcasing both his athleticism and ability to digest the play quickly.
We caught up with Geer to hear how the offseason is going and his goals for the upcoming season.
“My goals for next year are to have over 100 tackles, make first team all region, receive college offers, and play to the best of my abilities, and do what’s best for my team.”
Geer has been working hard this offseason on his footwork and spoke about playing in the middle of the Johns Creek defense.
“My favorite position to play is middle linebacker because I love to be able to come up to stop the run, but I am also able to drop back into pass coverage.”
The Class ’18 linebacker tailors his game after Texans linebacker Brian Cushing. “He has no fear when he steps out on the field, and plays the game at a full speed tempo all the time,” Geer said about the Pro Bowler.
Watch the aggressive linebacker play, and you will see his Cushing-like demeanor at work. Geer plays the game like his hair is on fire and is a heat-seeking missile in the backfield. He takes on blocks with ferocity, and his motor just never stops. Consistently you see the young linebacker make tackles from the backside of the play.
Geer believes that his biggest strengths are his “speed and awareness.” The Johns Creek middle linebacker stands 6’2″ and weighs 210 pounds. He has worked hard this offseason and during march power cleaned 275 pounds.
The rising junior’s recruitment has really just begun, but a few schools have expressed interest already. “The only colleges I have heard from so far are Air Force and the University of Pennsylvania.”
He plans to change that this summer by increasing his exposure and camping at Arizona and possibly a few of the MVP Camps. Geer certainly has a nose for the ball, and we expect more FCS and FBS schools to become interested as his recruitment progresses.
