Quarless schedules first official

Tight end Andrew Quarless from Uniondale, N.Y. is looking at two official visits right now. Who is the 6-foot-4, 222-pounder with 4.5-second speed considering and what does he like about those schools?
"At this time, I'm planning to go to Virginia for the Virginia Tech game on November 18th if my schedule works, that would be an official visit. I think I'll also take one to Penn State, but I'm not sure when that'll work out," he said. "I had good unofficial visits to both schools and I want to see what they show me on an official. I just want to go and be with the team and check it out. I hope to talk to the coaches more and see the campus. I think most likely the rest of the visits will be after the season in November or later."
Surprisingly the four-star prospect didn't announce an official to Miami, who appeared to have been one of his leaders along with Virginia.
"I visited Miami unofficially and I'm still doing research on them," he said. "They are still right up there with Penn State and Virginia I believe."
Quarless has received plenty of calls from coaches since September 1st.
"Virginia, Nebraska, Syracuse and Wisconsin are some of the schools that have called and I've been speaking with," he said. "None has really stood out, but I'm doing research on all their schools and told them I'll get back with them. They are all just keeping me posted with what's going on."
The No. 13 tight end in the country has taken notice of a few schools on the college football landscape.
"Penn State is off to a 3-0 start which is impressive. Notre Dame and Virginia are also playing good," he said. "It's good to see those teams playing well. I think Notre Dame is doing really well and I'm impressed with their offense. The coaches they have there seem to be a really good fit."
Uniondale and Quarless got off to a solid start beating Syosset 30-0 last week.
"I had seven catches for 155 yards and two touchdowns. I also had five tackles and two sacks," he said. "That was a good first game and we won. I was happy with how I played, but I feel I could have done better. This was just the first game with my quarterback, so we need more time to get a connection going. I think we'll do even better in the future.
"As for our team, they are very strong and the defense is really good. They only allowed four first downs in the game. I believe we're confident heading into the season."
This week the Knights face off against Oceanside.
