Qvale nets second impressive offer

Two camps and two major scholarship offers.

After he outperformed the competition during recent one-day camps in Madison and Lincoln, Neb., Brent Qvale, a three-star prospect, exited his extended weekend with two impressive scholarship offers.

Tuesday night, BadgerBlitz.com caught up with the Williston (ND) prospect to discuss his recent trip to Wisconsin.

"Actually, I left today, I was in Madison yesterday (Monday)," Qvale said. "It was a one-day camp. It went really good; I got an offer from Wisconsin.

"After I finished up with camp, I went back to shower," continued Qvale. "After that we returned to campus where I went up to Coach (Bret) Bielema's office. He told me the coaching staff was excited and that they thought I could play for them, and they wanted to extend me a scholarship offer."

Although the Badger staff has heavily recruited Qvale, he admits his first trip to Madison was an eye-opener.

"It was actually my first visit to Madison," he explained. "It was definitely a lot bigger than I'm use to. But, I could see myself living there. I liked the campus a lot."

With offers on the table from the Cornhuskers and the Badgers, the 6-foot-7, 300-pound offensive tackle has a very difficult decision to make.

"They are both top-notch programs right now," Qvale said. "It's cool that they are both in different conferences, but it's going to be very tough to choose between one of those two.

"Wisconsin and Nebraska are definitely going to be my top two."

That said, flooding throughout the state of Iowa actually caused Qvale to cut his Midwest tour short.

"I was planning on camping at Iowa today, but that got cancelled due to all the flooding," said Qvale, who has an impressive 4.0 GPA. "I'll see what happens with Iowa, I need to speak with the coaches and see what they'd like to do about that. But I think I'm done with camps."

Wisconsin currently has two offensive linemen who have given their verbal in the 2009 class: Zac Matthias and Ryan Groy.
