Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about QUINTEZ CEPHUS: Wisconsin, 6007 202 4.75. Junior entry, three-year starter, Macon, GA. Honorable mention All Big 10 in 2019 after missing all of 2018 while he was undergoing a rape trial. He was found not guilty and soon after re-admitted to the program. A top end high school basketball player also had several Division I offers, broke out in his true-senior season while leading the Badgers in catches, yards, and touchdowns. In a predominantly rushing offense, he stood out and flashed top-end ability on the outside. If the off-field screening passes tests, he is just as talented as many others at the position in this class with attainable upside. Strong and sturdy build with enough looseness in his hips to add easy burst and quickness to his arsenal. Runs sharp and crisp routes. Explodes out of his breaks. Consistent separation on all levels of the route tree. Gets off the line in a hurry and does a nice job selling routes. A hand catcher who locates the ball and adjusts his position with ease. Physical player who shows up in traffic to catch and block. Lacks the top end gear to pose as a deep threat. Hands need to be more consistent play to play. Route running needs to be cleaner downfield. Inconsistent week to week. 2019 stats: 59-901, 15.3 ypr, 7 TD. OSR:50/ 51. Seventh round/PFA. (A-32 1/8, H-8 3/4, VJ-38.5, SS-4.33).
