Quessenberry Has Top 3, to Decide Later

La Costa Canyon (Calif.) offensive lineman Scott Quessenberry was one of the surprise performers at The Opening over the weekend while working out at a new position...

Scott Quessenberry started off strong at The Opening by posting the second highest SPARQ Rating for all offensive lineman with a 100.89 score. He clocked a 5.10-40, 4.4 shuttle, jumped 29 inches in the vertical and threw the power ball 40'.

The lineman started off a little slow on the first day of pads and looked a little overwhelmed physically. That all changed on Sunday when Quessenberry moved to center and impressed enough to be selected as one of the top five offensive lineman in the event by the coaching staff.

On the recruiting front, Quessenberry said three schools currently stand out and he plans to take all five of his official visits before making a decision.

"My top three right now is California, Washington and Nebraska," Quessenberry said. "Cal is the only one I visited but I loved it there. The facilities are incredible and they just spent $165 million on renovations. I love the coaches and Coach Michalczik, the OL coach is a great guy and I really like Coach Tedford too.

"I've heard great things about Washington and some of the committed players have been talking to me a lot this week. They're doing stadium renovations too and I've seen what the place is going to look like and it's going to be amazing. I like the coaches a lot and I'm going to take a visit there for sure."

As for the Cornhuskers;

"That's Big 10 football and I've always liked Nebraska a lot," Quessenberry said. "I have a good relationship with Coach Cotton and Coach Garrison and when you talk about facilities, everyone knows Nebraska has some of the best. I got to talk to Ndamukong Suh and he talked about what a great time he had at Nebraska and I'll be taking a visit there during the season.

"UCLA and San Diego State are right there with those three schools and I'm looking at Arkansas too. My plan is to take all five of my official visits and I won't be ready to make my decision until later in the year. I'm in no hurry at all right now and I'm going to take things slow to make sure I'm making the right decision for me."
