05/13/14 - Giants sign five Undrafted Free Agents: Quarles, 6-3 and 297 pounds, played in 35 games with 28 starts in three seasons at South Carolina. His career totals include 105 tackles (66 solo) with 13.0 sacks for minus-111 yards, 23.5 stops for losses of 147 yards and eight quarterback pressures. In 2013, he played in 11 games and led the Gamecocks with 9.5 sacks – 6.5 more than teammate Jadeveon Clowney, the first overall selection in the draft. He had 39 tackles (27 solo) and was a unanimous first-team All-Southeastern Conference choice. Quarles attended Greenwood (S.C.) High School, where he earned second-team all-state honors. - Michael Eisen, Giants.com
04/29/14 - Five players who should be on the Baltimore Ravens' draft radar: DT Kelcy Quarles, South Carolina: The loss of Arthur Jones in free agency to the Colts and age of starters Haloti Ngata (30) and Chris Canty (31) could make adding a powerful five-technique a priority for Baltimore early in the draft. Quarles signed with South Carolina as a highly regarded prep prospect and steadily improved, exploding as a junior to become the Gamecocks' most dependable defensive lineman. In leading the team with 13.5 tackles for loss (including 9.5 sacks), Quarles earned First Team All-SEC honors from the media and opposing coaches, alike, and may just be scratching the surface of his potential. Of course, Quarles often only had to take on one lineman as opponents focused on teammate Jadeveon Clowney. Quarles' combination of burst, length and strength makes him a valuable commodity to 4-3 and 3-4 defenses alike and therefore if he were available in the third, Baltimore would be wise to pounce. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
04/21/14 - Five players who should be on the Green Bay Packers' draft radar: DT Kelcy Quarles, South Carolina: The Packers re-signed B.J. Raji but only for one year and have shown little urgency in bringing back the 34-year old Ryan Pickett. Quarles doesn't possess the naturally wide frame at 6-foot-4, 297 pounds that Raji (330) and Pickett (340) but holds up well at the point of attack due to his strength and has the quickness to offer some interior pass rush. He'd offer the versatility and talent to fit into Green Bay's rotation. If he were available to the Packers in the third round, he'd make a lot of sense. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
04/15/14 - Kelcy Quarles was in New York last week but never went to the bar mentioned in a TMZ.com report and was not in a fight, he told The State on Tuesday. “I’m (mad) about it because it’s going to hurt my draft status,” the former South Carolina defensive tackle said. “I’m about to do everything I possibly can to get my name cleared because it’s not fair. I had nothing to do with this.” Quarles and former Gamecock cornerback Victor Hampton are wanted for questioning by the New York Police Department in connection to an alleged physical altercation at the Greenhouse nightclub on April 11, TMZ reported on its website Tuesday, citing unnamed sources. TMZ.com reported that there was a fight in the VIP section of the club involving a club promoter -- who was allegedly attacked by three men and suffered “extensive facial injuries.”
Quarles and Hampton, along with former teammates Connor Shaw, Bruce Ellington and Chaz Sutton, were in New York last week for an ESPN The Magazine photo shoot titled “Kings for a Day.” Quarles never went to Greenlight while in New York, he said, and he believes police are looking for Sutton, he said. “I have not been questioned. What am I being questioned for?” Quarles said. “I am telling you they are looking for Chaz Sutton.” Sutton was not in a fight, did not witness a fight and did not go to Greenlight, he said. “No, I actually hung out with my friends that night,” Sutton said. “I wasn’t even involved or there so I couldn’t really tell you. I don’t know what is going on.” - The State

Quarles was a unanimous first-team All-SEC selection after leading the team with 9.5 sacks and 13.5 tackles for loss. He finished his career with 13.0 sacks and 23.5 tackles for loss. - South Carolina football
