Elijah Qualls committed to Washington in June and he's happy with his pledge but the Petaluma (Calif.) Casa Grande three-star athlete is particularly interested in taking two other official visits.
Arizona and Miami are the schools and Qualls said while he's not regretting his decision to commit to Washington he does want to see what other programs are like.
"I know I'm taking one to Washington and I'm pretty sure I'm taking one to Arizona and one to Miami," Qualls said. "As for the other two I'm not really sure yet.
"It's more to just make sure I have no doubts about my decision and I want to see what it's like to be at another school and to see some new places at the same time. I just want to take my trips to see what's out there."
Rivals.com rates the 6-foot-1, 282-pound prospect as the No. 19 athlete in the 2013 class and No. 35 in the California state rankings. He will probably play defensive tackle in college but also splits time at running back at Casa Grande.
He said both Arizona and Miami are intriguing offers and he likes something about each program.
"Arizona's coaches are great guys," Qualls said.
"They're rebuilding right now and I feel they're going to be where Washington is in three or four years if they keep that coaching staff. They're all great guys. If they get some good recruiting they're going to be really good in a few years. The environment is great there."
Miami's tradition stands out as does the prestige of the program, some of the players Qualls has talked to and the coaching staff.
"Miami has always been a big-time school putting people in the pros," Qualls said. "I've talked to some people that are going there and they've talked well about it so I'm curious to see it for myself."
