Quessenberry ready for Big Ten trips

Scott Quessenberry is taking two Big Ten trips in April and the lineman from Carlsbad (Calif.) La Costa Canyon is looking forward to them.
The 6-foot-4, 265-pound prospect is going to see the spring games at Wisconsin and Nebraska - both schools have already offered - and it's going to be a good gauge whether either place is a good fit.
So far, Quessenberry has offers from the Huskers and Badgers along with Washington State, SMU and San Diego State. All options are still on the table until after he takes these Nebraska and Wisconsin visits.
"I'm definitely excited to go out there because the Big Ten is big-time football and the offensive line and defensive lines get after it," Quessenberry said. "It is a good place to be a lineman so I'm looking forward to it.
"As of right now I'm open to everybody. San Diego State is appealing because San Diego is the best area in the world in my opinion. Wisconsin and Nebraska are bigger programs so I'm open to everything right now."
Getting out and taking visit is important to Quessenberry as he considers making his commitment. He wants to meet the coaching staffs and some players and see the logistics of going to school so far away from home.
"It's really important because I'll see how everyone acts toward me as a football player and then I want to see how easily my parents get to games," Quessenberry said.
"I've been to Wisconsin once before and it's a great place. I just want to see both campuses."
Going to college away from home is not unfamiliar to Quessenberry since his La Costa Canyon teammate and friend Erik Magnuson, a four-star offensive tackle, picked Michigan over many other offers last recruiting cycle including ones much closer to home.
The Wolverines are also looking at Quessenberry but probably for the defensive line. UCLA and Boise State have also been showing interest.
