Quarless decides on first official

Uniondale, N.Y. linebacker Andrew Quarless didn't get a chance to see the Penn State game in person last weekend, but the 6-foot-4, 222-pounder with 4.5-second speed was impressed with what he saw on television.
"Penn State did a really good job and it was a good game for them," he said. "That's definitely a plus for them now that they are ranked in the top ten and beat the No. 6 team in the country."
The four-star prospect has started to consider official visits and it looks like the Nittany Lions have landed one of them.
"I haven't scheduled any visits yet as I'm doing a lot of research and looking at the academics for all the schools," he said. "I think I'm going to schedule a Penn State official sometime since I want to see one of their games. Beyond them, there are a lot of other schools I'm considering and I've got to narrow it down. Other schools I'm looking at are Virginia and Michigan. I like Michigan a lot because their business school is ranked very high."
The No. 12 tight end in the country still hasn't received an offer from Notre Dame.
"I guess that kind of affects me since they haven't offered, so I'm not sure what to say about them."
Quarless currently is focusing more on his season as Uniondale is 3-1 on the year.
"The season is going good. I've already got 24 receptions for 414 yards and five touchdowns. On defense, I've added 28 tackles, three sacks and an interception," he said. "I'm happy with how I've done because I can tell I have better footwork, I run better routes and do more after the catch.
"Our team is looking really strong this year too. We've got a lot of talent on both sides of the ball and I think we have a shot at the championship."
