Encinitas (Calif.) La Costa Canyon center Scott Quessenberry (6-4, 270) came off the field satisfied after a shut-out win against Vista (Calif.) on Friday, winning 21-0 over their rival.

After being highly recruited by several schools, Quessenberry committed to UCLA at the beginning of October and is now set to take his official visit next month.

"I'm taking my official when they play USC on November 17," said Quessenberry. "I'm really excited for that."

Quessenberry had other visits set up but is uncertain he will still take them since his commitment to UCLA.

"I had a visit planned to Nebraska for October 26th, but I'm not sure I'm still going to go. I am really set on UCLA and happy with my decision. I might go to Cal, however, because they were my number two school and I owe a lot to coach Jim Michalczik. He recruited me really hard and we had a really good relationship. I would feel bad if I didn't, but like I said, I'm set on UCLA."

Although Quessenberry plays left tackle for the Mavericks, he was recruited by UCLA as a center and is ready to step into that position right away.

"I feel like I have a very good football brain and I feel like they know that. I'm not the 6'6" prototypical tackle, but I feel I can play any position on the offensive line. I'm recruited as a center, but I'm going to play where they need me to play as fast as they need me to play. I just want to get on the field," Quessenberry said.

The football gene seems to run in the family as Scott will be the third to enter the ranks of D-ik football. His brother David, a senior offensive tackle at San Jose State and Paul, a sophomore linebacker for Navy, both encouraged Scott to choose the school he felt fit best.

"They just told me to go with my heart. Just do what's right for me and I felt like UCLA was the best fit for me, and that's where I ended up," said Quessenberry.
