Football Recruiting: Scott Quessenberry Update


Scott Quessenberry, four-star offensive guard and defensive tackle from California, was named one of the top linemen at The Opening over the weekend. Now invited to an exclusive high school football event in January, the recruit has narrowed down the schools that he is looking at. Did Oregon make the cut?

According to Erik McKinney, ESPN.com’s West Coast Recruiting Coordinator, Quessenberry has been invited to the 2013 Under Armour All-American Game in January after his impressive performance at the camp. There’s also been multiple tweets of the 6-foot-4, 265-pound athlete narrowing his list of schools to five or even three.

First, earlier today Huskers Illustrated released a tweet beginning with “Quessenberry has three in front…” In the linked article, it details that the recruit has three schools in front. 247Sports verifies this with Nebraska, California, and Washington all having the highest level of interest.

However, Craig Haubert, an ESPN recruiting analyst, said eight hours later that “Quessenberry told me [at] The Opening that he’s focusing on [five] schools,” including hastags for UCLA and San Diego State.

Despite all the news, Oregon doesn’t seem to remain an interest for Quessenberry, who would be a tremendous addition in 2013 to hold down the offensive line.

The recruit has received multiple offers, including five from these other Pac-12 schools: Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon State, Utah, and Washington State. Other schools of note are Arkansas, Wisconsin, and Boise State.
