Earlier this year, my No. 16-ranked prospect, Brady Quinn (6-4, 210, 4.65) of Dublin (Coffman), Ohio, was probably the fastest-rising QB recruit in the nation. It seemed like schools were falling over themselves to offer him -- big-time passing programs such as Miami (Fla.), Florida, FSU, Michigan, Ohio State, Tennessee, Colorado, Stanford and Georgia Tech -- as soon as they saw his film. Late this summer, he ended the suspense by committing to Notre Dame.

Brady Quinn committed to ND.
He's a legit 6-4 with a super-strong arm who can throw the ball more than 70 yards and complete the deep out pattern with accuracy and authority.
