Adeboyejo talks visits, announcement date
By Damon Sayles
Quincy Adeboyejo (Cedar Hill, Texas/Cedar Hill) has collected multiple frequent flyer miles as of late. In the last 11 days, the three-star wide receiver has made two visits, and in the next three days, he’ll make two more.
Adeboyejo, fresh off a visit to Texas Tech, will fly to Los Angeles on Wednesday to take in UCLA for a mid-week visit. Two days later, the former Texas A&M commit will head to Oxford, Miss., for an official visit to Ole Miss.
Following the Ole Miss trip, Adeboyejo said he will announce where he will verbally commit. He has set an announcement date of Jan. 29.
“My coach and I are working on something to where I can do something after school,” Adeboyejo said. “If I can’t do it then, I’ll just announce it on Twitter.”
Adeboyejo said he enjoyed the trip to Texas Tech over the weekend. He was impressed with the attitudes of the coaching staff, led by new head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
“It was a nice environment being out there with all the coaches,” he said. “They’re all really young and have lot of energy. It was nice being out there with them.”
Adeboyejo said he’s looking forward to the trip to UCLA. Although a lot of the coaches won’t be in town because of in-home visits, he said he will be there to look at the campus, check out the academic side of things and speak in depth with receivers coach Eric Yarber.
“I really just want to see facilities and sit down with [Yarber],” Adeboyejo said. “I’ll get a chance to talk to the people in academics, and I’ll get to sit with him and let him show me how he can make a better player and how they will use me in the offense.”
Adeboyejo said he’s hoping the Ole Miss trip will be a good way to finish his traveling. The Rebels are expecting to have a large number of commits in attendance -- including fellow Texan and ESPN 300 quarterback DeVante Kincade (Dallas/Skyline) -- and Adeboyejo is hoping to bond with several of the current roster and future roster players.
“There will be a lot of people already committed there,” he said, “so I just want to see what the vibe’s like down there and see if I can see myself living there.”
