Scott Quessenberry missed all the pre-game festivities but the UCLA commit got to the stadium just in time to see the Bruins start putting up major points so the three-star lineman is not complaining.
The Carlsbad (Calif.) La Costa Canyon standout had another great time at UCLA, especially since the Bruins hammered Arizona, and Quessenberry said he's more confident than ever that he made the right decision.
Quessenberry, rated as the fifth-best center in the 2013 class, committed UCLA in early October and said he's thrilled with his choice.
"It was awesome there," Quessenberry said. "I got there late because I got stuck in some pretty bad traffic, I got there right for kickoff but I didn't get to go on the field or anything.
"I had a blast. They killed it and it was really, really fun.
"I always said UCLA was in my top and I just needed to see how they would do this year. When they started killing it then I thought it was definitely a place I could see myself. I'm really happy I'm going there."
Just because Quessenberry made his commitment doesn't mean the phone calls from other schools have stopped.
That doesn't seem to have much influence on Quessenberry, though, and he said his commitment is firm and not going anywhere.
"Cal still calls me once a week, Washington State still calls me once a week and Washington still calls and people are still trying to get me but I'm pretty much locked in at UCLA," Quessenberry said. "I feel like it's the right fit.
"They only brought in two interior guys in me and John Lopez. Every other lineman they brought in is a tackle so I feel like I'm in a comfortable spot going in and I feel like it's the right decision."
The 6-foot-4, 276-pound three-star said he could play center or guard in college and doesn't really have a preference.
"Either one," Quessenberry said. "I just want to get on the field as fast as possible."
