Washington commit wants to visit

Arizona's 2013 recruiting class is not over just yet and one of the main prospects still on the board is a Washington commit. Read on to see the latest.

Few high school linemen in the country are more coveted by the UA coaching staff than Petaluma (Calif.) Casa Grande defensive tackle Elijah Qualls. Qualls is the kind of run-stuffing tackle that UA has been sorely lacking over the last decade. Even though he is a Washington commit, Qualls plans on visiting some other schools.

"Don't get me wrong, I love Washington," Qualls said. "They've got a lot of stuff that intrigues me, but I want to make sure I make the right decision. The decision will be one of the biggest of my life, so I'm going to be thorough about everything."

Qualls has a handful of schools that he has in mind and one of them is Arizona.

"The coaching staff has been in contact with me and they're definitely a school I'm looking at," Qualls said. "They say there is an opportunity to come in and contribute early, which is obviously appealing.

"Plus, you see how they are playing and it's obvious things are headed in the right direction. I'm going to take a visit, but I'm just not sure when. The other school I want to check out for sure is Miami."

Between visiting schools and focusing on his senior season, Qualls figures to remain busy.

"My senior season is going well," Qualls said. "We're three and one, but we should finish the year out strong. We're still trying to figure everything out, but everybody is working hard, which bodes well.

"Obviously, the main goal is to win every game, but I'm also paying attention to the little things like keeping proper technique and leverage because those things will make a huge difference at the next level. If I continue to work hard, everything from a playing and recruiting perspective will work out."
