The Miami Hurricanes' linebacking corps has been ravaged by injuries so far during the team's undefeated start to the 2015 college football regular season. That makes four-star 2016 linebacker and Canes commit Shaquille Quarterman an even bigger get when it comes to supplementing the team's LB depth.
Quarterman visited the Canes for the team's overtime victory over the Nebraska Cornhuskers this past Saturday -- a game which he had no problem marking as the game ticket provided by the Hurricanes.
"Picking this as my one really wasn't some important choice because I'll be at a bunch of home games this year anyway," Quarterman said. "I wanted to see them come out of the gate strong and work their gameplan. They really exploited Nebraska right away, it was surprising how fast they actually got out."
The six-foot-one, 231-pounder paid for his own ticket to the home opener against Bethune-Cookman. He's been impressed by what's he seen up close so far from the Canes.
"The perseverance of the team sticks with me more than anything else," Quarterman said. "I'm pretty sure they got coached up on your assignments but sometimes it's hard with a big lead. You get lackadaisical when things go so well and you saw them slip up a couple times. They let Nebraska get a couple scores but they forgot about it quickly and still finished the game."
