Qualls working on some trips

Elijah Qualls has been committed to Washington since June and he's given no sign of backing off that pledge but the Petaluma (Calif.) Casa Grande defensive tackle also plans to take visits to other schools.
The 6-foot-1, 282-pound four-star prospect said he will probably visit Washington for its matchup against USC in mid-October. He also plans to visit Miami and Arizona, and possibly others, but no dates have been figured out yet.
"I haven't set any dates yet," Qualls said. "I'm still taking it day-by-day and seeing what weeks would be best for the coaches and then I'm working off that.
"It will probably be during the season. I most likely will go to the Washington-USC game and for Miami and Arizona I'm not sure about dates yet."
Qualls, who moved up to four stars after strong performances this summer at the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge and The Opening, was one of six prospects to commit to Washington on June 29.
By many accounts, he was one of the orchestrators of having all those recruits make their pledge that day.
The four-star said he's still solid with the Huskies but does want to look at some other options as his senior season continues.
Casa Grande opened the campaign with a convincing 43-14 victory against Eureka, Calif., this past weekend. Qualls was most dominant on the defensive side and said he won't start getting too busy on offense for a few more weeks.
"It was an intense game," Qualls said. "It was a good game and team-wise we played well.
"On offense, I don't really get going until the third or fourth game of the season. On defense, I did pretty well. I had about 10 tackles. I could have done better but I had no traction and it was tough to get off the ball."
