Change of plans

The spring game is such an attraction to bring in recruits to see 75,000+ fans in Memorial Stadium for a practice and to get a glimpse of the upcoming team. Scott Quessenberry planned on visiting Nebraska for their spring game until he realized he was double-booked that weekend.

Scott Quessenberry, from Encinitas (Calif.) La Costa Canyon, is a lineman that at the next level could play all three of the interior line positions and if he grows a little more could even play tackle. The coveted recruit was planning a visit to Nebraska next month, but he's had to change his plans.

"I was planning on taking some trips soon," Quessenberry said. "I was planning on going to Nebraska on April 14th, but I am taking the ACT that day. My next unofficial will either be up to Wisconsin or over to Westwood to see UCLA's spring game.

"I am going to go to Lincoln before the summer starts because I want to check it out. I mean, it's the Big Ten football and Nebraska football. It's definitely intriguing to me. Wisconsin's spring game is April 28th and I am not sure on UCLA."

Quessenberry has already been to see one school in California and he was supposed to get over to UCLA this weekend as well. He opted to skip this weekend though to be with his family.

"I have been to see San Diego and I was going to see UCLA this weekend for their junior day, but it was the day after my birthday and I chose not to go and hung out with my family instead."

There are some things that Quessenberry is looking for when it comes to picking out a school. It all starts with the quality of education because he knows that you can't play football forever. After that he wants a school with some tradition and a team that typically fields a winning team.

"Academically I want it to be a good school. There has to be a life after football. I want to have a good degree to get a good job. I want a school that has a history of winning. I have never been on a losing team in my life. I am also looking for a good game-day atmosphere."

Quessenberry knows that at the next level that he will have to slide inside to either center or guard from the tackle spot that he is currently playing. He's fine with that move, but he hopes that all of the schools recruiting him haven't given up on the idea of him growing a little more and possibly still playing tackle.

"I am playing tackle currently. We didn't have a right tackle going into the season. I have played every position though across the line. I will probably be playing left tackle this year. In college, I am looking to play center but if they like me at guard then I will play guard. If I sprout up two more inches then I could move out to tackle.

"All of the teams that I have been talking to like me inside at either center or guard. I am 6-foot-4 right now but I definitely think that I have a few more inches in me to grow."
