And man, this guy certainly lives up to his namesake.

Quick, a 6-foot, 170-pound prospect from Central East High School in Fresno (CA), is a four-star recruit and a top-10 player at his position, according to 247sports.

If there was ever a true definition of the term playmaker, Quick would fall under that category. He’s dynamic in space and is always a threat to make one cut and go yard. His size is deceptive as he plays with power, which was why he was utilized on defense as a corner as well.

To sum it up right, Quick just knows what to do with the football when it’s in his hands. He will make an excellent punt and kick returner at the collegiate level, should be dangerous up the middle as a slot man and possesses the second-gear kind of speed that eats up yards after catch—a quality that is required to play in the Big 12 Conference.

During his senior year, Quick compiled 56 receptions for 1,035 yards and an extraordinary 21 touchdowns—not including the four scores he contributed via special teams and defense.

Quarterback Trevor Knight has to be elated about this pick up. There were times in 2013 where the Sooners’ offense was completely inadequate, especially through the passing game.

Quick is the kind of player that could come in and transform the offense the moment he gears up for practice, and it’s almost certain that he’ll have some sort of immediate impact on the team come August.
