Brian Rumeal Quick (born June 5, 1989) is an American football wide receiver for the St. Louis Rams of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Appalachian State. He was drafted by the Rams in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft. He was considered one of the top wide receiver prospects for the 2012 NFL Draft.[1]

Early years

A native of Columbia, South Carolina, Quick attended Ridge View High School, where he was a basketball standout until switching to football only in his senior year.[2] He was unrated as a football prospect by Rivals.com.[3]

College career

As a freshman he did not register a catch in two games before sitting out the rest of the season with a back injury. The next season, 2008, he rebounded from a slow start to become one of the nation’s top receivers over the final month-and-a-half of the season. In 2009 Quick caught 61 passes for a team-best 982 yards for 16.1 yards-per-catch average. As a junior in 2010 Quick earned First-team All-America honors from Sporting News and was voted Second-team All-Southern Conference by the league’s coaches and media while leading ASU with 47 receptions, 844 receiving yards, nine touchdown catches and 18.0-yards-per-catch average. In his senior year, Quick recorded 71 receptions for 1,096 yards with 11 touchdowns.[4] Sporting News named Quick to its Division I FCS All-America team as did the AFCA and he received Second-team accolades from theAssociated Press and The Sports Network.
