Elijah Qualls is focused on the state playoffs with his Petaluma (Calif.) Casa Grande team and then after the season the Washington commit will worry more about visits.
The 6-foot-1, 282-pound four-star defensive tackle said Washington and Arizona will for sure receive visits and then a bunch of programs are in the mix.
Miami has always been seriously considered by Qualls but he hasn't been talking much with the coaching staff. Two others have been looked at as well but Qualls is first focused on winning games and then visits will happen later.

"I'm still going to take visits," Qualls said.
"Arizona still, I'll go to Miami if I can get a hold of the coaches. I'd like to go there but I haven't been talking to them much. I'm definitely going to visit Washington for sure. Oregon State could be a possibility and Nebraska could be a possibility. There are a few other options that could happen.
"Everybody still talks to me and there is still interest so I'm going to consider visits. For sure Washington and Arizona and then the other ones aren't definite yet."
Qualls, who shined at numerous national events this past summer, has been committed to Washington since June but has made it no secret he would consider other visits.
The four-star said there are no new programs getting involved in his recruitment but the basket of teams that have been talking to him all along are staying in the mix.
"It's been pretty quiet," Qualls said. "I still hear from the same schools but not any new ones."
First, Qualls has business to take care of on the field. Petaluma Casa Grande faces Concord, Calif., and Washington State running back commit Olito Thompson this weekend in the playoffs.
"This is a pretty good team and they have a lot of good athletes," Qualls said. "They might not be as organized as we are but they have athletes who can make plays. It's going to be a good game."
