Washington moved to the top of the list for Elijah Qualls after his first unofficial visit there and after returning for the Huskies' spring game and junior day this past weekend the Pac-12 school is going to stay in that first position.
The Petaluma (Calif.) Casa Grande athlete did not commit because he wants to give other schools an opportunity to get involved in his recruitment but Washington is definitely looking good in his recruitment after another enjoyable visit.
"The trip was awesome," Qualls said. "It was junior day so a lot of people were up there. I got to meet a lot of good players. Joe Mathis was up there and I got to talk with him and he's a cool dude. There were a lot of other good players up there and we had a lot of fun."
Rated as the No. 25 athlete in the 2013 class by Rivals.com, Qualls said he is considering a commitment to the Huskies but does not want to close the door on other programs that might get involved.
For that reason, Qualls might wait a little longer before making his decision but the Huskies do look good.
"I've liked Washington since the first time I went there but I still have a lot of offers for schools that I want to check out," Qualls said.
"I definitely want to give everyone else a chance. There could be something at another school I like and I don't want to miss out on that chance. I've thought about committing but I want to make sure I don't bypass anything and I don't miss anything.
"It was the same thing as last time. They were all hanging out with the coaches. I was with some of the players and they were still hanging out with the coaches. We went to the spring game and kicked it on the field and we got to see how they interact. It was cool. They were getting them fired up for the game. They love having fun with it. You always get a good feeling around those people."
No more visits are planned but Qualls, a 6-foot-2, 279-pound prospect, said he plans to camp at USC, Oregon State, Washington and Cal in the coming months. Some official visits are also being considered.
