It’s been a long road for Quincy Vasser. The defensive end, who played his high school ball in New York, his prep school ball in Virginia and junior college ball in Texas, will be a part of Georgia’s 2015 signing class. He’ll take his official visit this summer.
Vasser is at Navarro Junior College in Texas, currently. He’s 6-foot-4, 240 pounds and also held a scholarship offer from Maryland. As a JUCO freshman last fall, he had 26 tackles, 8 tackles for loss and 5 sacks. He played at Hargrave Military Academy prep school in 2012, which didn’t cost him a year of eligibility. Sometimes, talented players in the northeast don’t get noticed, recruiting wise, and have to go this route to be recognized.
That’s exactly what happened for Vasser.
“Honestly, it’ll be amazing (on Saturdays),” Vasser told Saturday Down South. “That’s what every kid dreams about growing up, playing in front of thousands. The big crowds on the road won’t affect me. I’m there for one purpose and that’s to get Ws with my teammates.”
Vasser said his relationship with former Hargrave teammates Leonard Floyd and John Atkins--who play for the Bulldogs now–helped in the decision. The Bulldogs are ranked the No. 16 class in the nation and have seven commitments on board.
