    I present to you perhaps the most unique athlete in the 2013 class. Qualls had over 1100 yards rushing and 13 TDs as a RB while compiling over 70 tackles and 4 sacks as a defensive end. He was an All-League and All-Empire selection. His future is likely along the defensive line.

    Like the old days of NCAA on XBOX when I'd turn RBs into a pass rushing DE I'd control. Unstoppable. :smile2:

    I'd love to bring him in as a fullback.

    pretty athletic for a big guy; if he's done growing, LB/FB, if not, DE/DT.

    Drop twenty lbs and put him at ILB. But like you said, that's if he stops growing.

    While he is not quite the freak that Christian Powell is (although he does have better measurables), Qualls is the type of player that will find a way to make an impact on the team. I realize the coaches have to be selective though.

    I'd pass on this kid. Looks a little soft to me. I'd guess he'd weigh 220 if he was in shape. I could maybe see him as an athletic DT if he can get to 300+. As for FB, he wouldn't dominate in the PAC12 like Pow Pow or Norgard will, they are both solid at their weight.

    He is having a good month. Up to five BCS offers now, including four from the PAC-12.

    Now showing an offer from us. Think he could be a good 3-technique player.

    Think this may be a sign we are looking to sign two DTs in this class.

    You can stroke a cat, but you can't Petaluma.

    Picked up a USC offer today. That makes all of the PAC-12 except Oregon and Stanford.

    USC is recruiting him as a DT, and appears to be in the lead for his commitment now (likely at Rising Stars Camp).

    When the next set of rankings come out, he will get a bump to 4*s.

    I saw a tweet last night saying that Washington would have a Top 30 class after today. I was waiting for the shoe to drop.
