Quentin Chaney, a 6-foot-6, 205-pound small forward from Booker T. Washington High School in Tulsa, Oklahoma will eventually have to make one of the biggest decisions of his life.
Chaney is a high major prospect on the basketball court and football field, but he does not anticipate playing both sports at the collegiate level.
Chaney's height and athleticism are two reasons college coaches are drooling over the Oklahoma product.
“I’ve been hearing from basketball coaches and football coaches,” Chaney said. “Coach Sampson from Oklahoma has contacted me and Coach Miles (football) from Oklahoma State has also been in contact.
“I’ve also have several conversations with Jackie Shipp, who is a football coach for the Oklahoma Sooners,” he added.
Chaney has an extremely busy summer coming up, so do not look for him to take any official visits during the early period. Once his junior year ends next month, he will spend the rest of the time traveling with his Athletes First AAU squad.
“I probably will take all five official visits, but it most likely won’t happen until the fall,” he said. “I’ll take visits for basketball and football, but I haven’t decided which sport I’ll play in college.”
When Chaney is at his best on the court, he has the ability to dominate a game in a variety of ways.
“I really enjoy rebounding on both ends of the court,” he said. “When I’m on the offensive end of the court one of my biggest strengths is getting other teammates involved in the game.”
