Scott Quessenberry has two official visits set up and the Carlsbad (Calif.) La Costa Canyon center is waiting on some others because two major programs have started to get involved in his recruitment.
The 6-foot-4, 276-pound prospect who looked good at The Opening this summer said he's heard from his coaches that Ohio State and TCU have shown more interest recently and if those schools offer then he could take trips there.
So far, Quessenberry is planning to visit Arkansas for its matchup against Alabama and Nebraska for the Michigan game. A trip to Cal is also being seriously considered.

"I have to set up my other three official visits," Quessenberry said. "I'll probably take one to Cal and that would make three and then my coach has been talking to TCU and Ohio State so if those two schools come through those would be my last two officials but if not I'll choose two different schools.
"My coach has been telling me that but I'm not sure how legit it is right now. Ohio State is big, The Ohio State University, and TCU has been killing it the past few years so those are two great programs and it would be great to get offers."
Arkansas and Nebraska are two favorites for Quessenberry, who said he's done a lot of research on both programs and he wouldn't take trips there unless he could see a future at either of those places.
"I'm definitely very serious about these two schools," Quessenberry said.
"I don't think I'd be taking an official if I wasn't. Arkansas is SEC football. I know the whole interim head coach and that makes me a little skeptical but it could still work in my favor if they sign the coach to a full contract. Nebraska is Big Ten football. They're coming up, they produce great centers so I'm serious about those schools."
Waiting can sometimes be a distraction but Quessenberry said he doesn't want to make his commitment without taking visits. Plus, with the new programs involved, the La Costa Canyon standout wants to see what else happens in his recruitment through his senior season.
"I don't know if it's so much exciting because it could be frustrating, too," Quessenberry said.
"I do want the schools to come through but at the same time I don't want any distractions. I want to go out my senior year and perform to the level I know I can perform. That's what I'm looking forward to the most."
