"It's good to get back out there," Qvale said. "It's excited. It's good to get back out there and finally get this season going.
"I have been playing a lot of basketball recently. Lots of open gym. Getting ready for both seasons. It's a great way to get in shape."
Official visits are becoming a hot topic and Qvale just happened to finalize his first visit today. "August 30th I am headed to Nebraska.
"It will be for Western Michigan, the season opener. The coaches were telling me that it's a perfect weekend. It's a night game and it's great to travel."
The night game makes it possible for Nebraska to bring in a lot more visitors that if the game was before 2:00 wouldn't be able to make it in. Qvale would have been one of those people.
"We actually have our opener the night before I got to Lincoln, August 29th. We didn't do too well last year, but we have a lot of guys back this season.
"Today, our first day, was probably the furthest along we have been on the first day. That is, since I have been here. We were very young last year.
"I think that we will be good and probably get the state playoffs. It would be nice to say title, but that's tough. I am thinking playoffs for sure."
The process begins to wear on people. By the sounds of it, there is a benefit to be able to get up to Nebraska so early in the year so that if he commits he has the rest of the season to focus on.
"Yeah, I am thinking that I could commit that weekend. It would be nice to kind of get it out of the way."
