Scouts: UCLA adds to strong OL group 

October, 7, 2012
UCLA’s 2013 class already consisted of commitments from several offensive line prospects and this weekend they added another with a verbal from Under Armour All-American Scott Quessenberry (Carlsbad, Calif./La Costa Canyon).

The No. 2-rated center is a prospect who needs to keep adding size to his frame and improving strength, but demonstrates the physical tools needed to be a very good center. We also like the competitiveness and nastiness he displays. Quessenberry doesn’t play center fulltime at this stage, but has experience at the position and with time to focus his reps in that role should greatly aid his development.

Scott Quessenberry picks UCLA 

October, 6, 2012
The Bruins gained another big piece for 2013 with the addition of Under Armour All-American center Scott Quessenberry (Carlsbad, Calif./La Costa Canyon), multiple sources report.

Quessenberry, ranked No. 189 in the ESPN 300, was also offered by Arizona, Arizona State, Arkansas, Boise State, California, Nebraska, Oregon, Oregon State, San Diego State, San Jose State, SMU, Utah, Washington, Washington State and Wisconsin.

ESPN rates Quessenberry as the No. 2 OC and calls him, "a very effective offensive tackle, dominating defenders with his athleticism and playing strength. However, his present size and growth potential indicate a move to center and that would best take advantage of his outstanding athletic ability."

This year might not offer the same depth of top-tier West region offensive linemen that the 2012 class produced, but there is no lack of overall ability. Headlining the list of uncommitted West Coast offensive linemen is Scott Quessenberry (Carlsbad, Calif./La Costa Canyon).

The nation’s No. 2 center and No. 189 recruit overall, Quessenberry has offers from programs across the country. But the 6-foot-4, 276-pound lineman said that with written offers now coming in, he hopes to begin narrowing his list of potential destinations.

“With all of these verbal offers, anything can happen,” he said. “But once you have the written offer, it’s the real deal.”

As recruiting has continued to speed up, ESPN 300 member Scott Quessenberry (Carlsbad, Calif./La Costa Canyon) has decided to slow things down. The No. 2 ranked center in the country and No. 183 overall player in the ESPN 300 had narrowed his list to four schools after visiting Nebraska and Wisconsin in April.

UCLA, San Diego State, Wisconsin and Nebraska looked as if they would be the finalists, but that was before schools such as Oregon, Cal, Arkansas and Washington offered scholarships to the four-star lineman.

"I thought I was ready to narrow it down to those four schools, but I started getting a lot more attention from other big programs. When schools like Oregon and Arkansas offer, you have to pay attention," Quessenberry said.
