Zach Quinney Is a Yellow Jacket


Zach Quinney announced this afternoon that he had committed to Georgia Tech. The 6’6″, 280-pound offensive tackle prospect from the Class of ’17 took to Twitter to announce his decision:

His commitment is on the heels of a Georgia Tech visit he took last weekend. There he spoke with the coaching staff in more detail about going to school at Georgia Tech. Tech had been recruiting Quinney for a few years now, and they were the second school to offer him on February 8th, shortly after he attended their junior day.

Our staff first saw Quinney at the NUC Showcase a year ago, where his quick feet (4.6 shuttle) and impressive length earned him Class of ’18 OL MVP honors. Quinney was also one of the first athletes to sign up for a Recruit Georgia profile, and has been a longtime user of our service.

The Class of ’17 offensive tackle has quick feet and does a good job pass-blocking against some serious Southeast talent. On film he moves well downfield while run-blocking, and he has the frame to continue to add weight in the coming years (he gained 30 pounds in the last year). Quinney has a strong season last year and an impressive showing at the MVP this offseason.

Georgia Tech coaches Brad Waggoner and Lamar Owens were the lead recruiters for Quinney. The high-potential OL is the seventh commitment for Georgia Tech in the 2017 recruiting cycle and second offensive lineman.
