Washington commit still being pursued

Elijah Qualls committed to Washington in late June but that has not slowed down the recruiting process for the Petaluma (Calif.) Casa Grande athlete.
The 6-foot-2, 279-pound three-star prospect landed an offer from Miami on Tuesday and Qualls said he's seriously considering an official visit to see what the Hurricanes could offer him.
"It was kind of cool," Qualls said. "I'm definitely excited about that. It actually kind of came out of nowhere.
"I could take one of my officials there and check it out. It's all brand new but I definitely do want to see the school."
Qualls, who looked good at defensive tackle this past weekend at The Opening, said his recruitment has picked up dramatically in the last few days.
Miami has offered and Qualls said Alabama, Texas and Florida are all showing new interest.
He remains happily committed to Washington but Qualls might take all five official visits so that's something to consider as his recruitment continues.
"I'm thinking about taking all five," Qualls said.
"I've been getting some more calls after the camp from some other schools that are interested. There are some other schools that said even though I'm committed I can take an official visit so I'm still figuring out what I'm going to do."
Qualls, rated as the No. 19 athlete in the 2013 class and No. 35 in the California state rankings by Rivals.com, said he's seriously considering trips to Arizona and Oregon State.
Depending on which other programs offer could determine where else Qualls will visit this fall.
