La Habra, Calif., three-star running back Joshua Quezada has had a very solid spring so far. The 6-foot, 200-pounder already had picked up very impressive scholarship offers from BYU, Fresno State, Hawaii and New Mexico State after rushing for 1,680 yards and 17 touchdowns as a junior.
He then improved his resume this past Wednesday when Washington and Stanford joined the offer list.
"I'm really excited about those offers," he said. "To get Pac 10 offers, especially from places like that, means a lot to me. I'm excited about them for sure."

One school that has been high on Quezada for quite some time is BYU (Steve Kaufusi). It sounds like the feeling is mutual.
"Our offense over at La Habra High School is all based on BYU's," Quezada said. "Even though the same coaches aren't at BYU, they still run the similar offense. It is something I'm very comfortable in after playing in it the past three years. They do a tremendous amount of passing to their running backs."
Quezada is also high on the high standards off the field a student at BYU follows.
"The biggest thing that I do like about BYU is their Honor Code," Quezada said. "No smoking. No drinking, or any kind of drugs. That's the kind of people I want to continue to be around. And as far as the shorter hair... when this process is all over, I've seen the different colleges, I've discussed it with my family, and I feel that BYU is the place for me, than the shorter hair won't be a problem."
Even though BYU looks like a good option, he's not in any rush, especially with the new offers coming in.
"I still have a good amount of time to figure that out," he said. "So for now I'm going continue to keep my options open, and find where I'm going to be the most comfortable the next four years of my life."
