Name: Quinton Oliver

Height: 5’7″

Weight: 210

School: Foster HS (Richmond, TX)

Class: 2018


Scouting Report: Growing up a Fresno State fan I remember watching a big, physical, running back named Lorenzo Neal. Watching Oliver on film reminds of that physical, fullback, type back coming out of the backfield and being able to truck anyone in his way. Physical running back, someone defenders aren’t going to take down with a leg tackle and has great balance and quickness through the hole along with the ability to change direction when he sees an open running lane. This is a talented young man and one I’m surprised doesn’t have more attention at this point in his high school career. There’s a school that’s going to get one heck of a player if they end up landing him.
