QB coach describes Gators commitment Matt Corral as ‘uniquely talented’

Matt Corral

Quincy Avery works as a quarterbacks coach for the Elite 11 series of football camps and spent time with five-star Florida QB commitment Matt Corral this summer. Avery joined “The Sports Den” with Denny Thompson and James Coleman on 1010XL Jax Sports Radio recently.

Avery, a quarterback guru based in Atlanta, is a former UCLA assistant coach and provided insight on what Florida fans should expect from Corral.

“He’s someone who is uniquely talented in that he has the ability to make all his throws, but he’s also a dynamic athlete,” Avery said. “He’s going to be able to push the ball down the field. He’s got a very strong arm.

“I’m just interested to see how he progresses in terms of the leadership and stuff like that. I think some people have given him a bad rep, but I think he’s matured a ton over the last 18 months. I’ve just seen him kind of mature as a young man, so I’m really excited about that and I can’t wait to see what he does in terms of leadership now as he’s developing more in terms of going from a kid to a man. He’s done a great job of that, but you’re going to get a really special guy.”

Corral (6 feet 2, 196 pounds) is one of the top-three pro-style quarterbacks in the class, as well as a top-25 prospect overall. Corral, from Long Beach (Calif.) Poly, committed to the Gators last month. He previously was committed to USC before re-opening his recruitment.
