Leon McQuay Excited To Play Both Ways For Armwood

Leon McQuay

Leon McQuay is one of the top recruits in the country at the safety position. He will also play receiver for the Armwood Hawks this fall.

Leon McQuay III is one of the top safety recruits in the country. At 6'2 and 185 pounds, he effortlessly glides as he patrols the middle of the field for the defending Class 6A Florida state champion Seffner Armwood High School, located on the outskirts of Tampa.

I stopped by Armwood Tuesday afternoon for SB Nation to check out McQuay and his talented teammates.

"I think we're going to be all right," McQuay said, when asked about Armwood's prospects for the upcoming season. "We got a lot of skill players coming back, and we have some young linemen that need to get better, because we have some new ones. We should be able to get back."

While McQuay is strictly a defensive back recruit, he will wear multiple hats this season and see some time as a receiver for Armwood, opposite of Alvin Bailey, in addition to his typical safety and kick return duties.

Moving to recruiting, McQuay has a top group of schools. "Florida, Vanderbilt, USC, Notre Dame and Stanford, but not in any order," said McQuay.

McQuay plans to visit those schools before he makes his commitment during the season, but doesn't have any definitive dates lined up yet.
