Following Thursday's 47-10 win over North Carolina, Miami HC Mark Richt said that junior LB Shaquille Quarterman was diagnosed with a sprained left ankle.

Quarterman (five tackles, two tackles for loss, two sacks) suffered the injury late in the second quarter, and after getting his ankle re-taped at halftime he attempted to play in the third quarter. But after just two plays the junior middle linebacker was unable to return, with senior Mike Smith replacing him in the lineup. While Richt said that he doesn't believe that Quarterman's injury is serious, the linebacker's status is something to keep an eye on in the days leading up to Miami's Oct. 6 meeting with Florida State.

The Draft Network's Joe Marino believes Miami junior LB Shaquille Quarterman had "inconsistencies" film.

Marino labels him as one of the players in the ACC with the most to prove and believes his counting stats don't quite line up with the film. Explaining more in-depth Marino said, "He regularly under-pursues plays and is stuck running in circles. His technique to stack and shed blocks fails to get his hands involved and he routinely gets washed out of his gap as a result." Without an impressive 2018 season, Quarterman's draft stock may fall.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline referred to Miami junior LB Shaquille Quarterman as a "terrific pursuit linebacker."

"He’s instinctive, disciplined and also nasty, and he chases around the field to disrupt the action," Pauline writes of the 6-foot-1, 240-pound Quarterman, whom he likes not just as a rangy Tasmanian Devil but additionally as a usable piece in coverage. The analyst hits up the junior linebacker with a Round 2 grade for the spring, should Quarterman opt in for a pro future this winter.
Aug 2 - 2:24 PM's Chase Goodbread ranks Miami Junior LB Shaquille Quarterman 12th on his list of future NFL defensive stars.

Goodbread applauds his consistency and wrote, "Since arriving as a freshman in 2016, Quarterman has started all 26 Miami games, with virtually the same tackle production in each of two seasons (84 as a freshman, 83 as a sophomore)." Goodbread is also excited by the idea of Quarterman having former Hurricanes star and Carolina Panthers first-round pick Jon Beason as a mentor. Quarterman looks the part of a future NFL player and will likely be one of the top linebackers off the board next April if his consistency carries over to the upcoming season.

Four-star LB Shaquille Quarterman committed to Miami in June.

Quarterman was courted by the likes of Alabama, Auburn and Boston College, but he opted to stay in his home state (he's from Orange Park, Florida). The 6-foot-1, 239-pounder played his high school ball at Oakleaf High and packs a wallop on his tackles, especially when he's able to gear up with a head of steam downhill. On the more critical side,'s analysis team sees him "struggl[ing] in space" and noted that he's "not fleet of foot." The recruiting hub likes him as north-south run-stopper. Quarterman ranks as the 98th recruiting prospect in the ESPN 300.
