Ezell talks about his visit to Army

For Quentin Ezell, visiting West Point a few days prior to R-Day offered a unique look inside the historic academy that many football prospects don't often have an opportunity to experience. Not because R-Day or the moment itself is off limits or requires a special invitation … but for Ezell, it just happen to be the time in which he scheduled his unofficial visit to Army.

GoBlackKnights.com had an opportunity to catch-up with the native of Maryland, who currently holds an offer from the Black Knights.

"We arrived on Friday and I meet up with Coach Brock," shares the 5-foot-10, 220 pound fullback prospect, who came in with one perspective and left with a totally different point of view.

"I thought it would be more like drill sergeant stuff, but it wasn't ... it was more about character and being discipline."

"Coach Brock showed us around the campus, talked about the various buildings and the history of West Point -- The campus is really nice.

We then went to the football facilities and they are very very nice. They have a brand new indoor field, so they are stepping up their game."

Did the prospect out of Walkersville (Md.) Walkersville High School have a chance to connect with the Army mentor? "I didn't have a chance to meet with Coach Ellerson, but I really have a good relationship with Coach Brock and that has been a plus," declares Ezell, who had a final destination of Boston College and their summer camp.

"I think I did well there and the coaches said they like what they saw," says Ezell, when reflecting on this performance at BC, along with looking ahead to some other summer plans.

"I have an offer from Navy and I plan to take an unofficial visit there. I'm not sure what other camps I will be attending, but also getting ready for my senior year."

The Black Knights have also offer Ezell's teammate and cornerback prospect Jose Depadua. "I spoke to Jose about my visit to Army because he has an offer as well and shared with him everything I saw on my trip," says Ezell, who is not quite ready to pull the decision trigger yet.

"I'm keeping an open mind about everything, but I am really considering Army"

GoBlackKnights.com will continue to follow Ezell's recruiting throughout the summer and into his senior year.
