O-D Bowl: Sean Welsh

FOX Sports NEXT is Scout.com is on the scene in Houston for the 2012 Offense-Defense All-American Bowl. While there, we caught up with Springboro (OH) offensive lineman Sean Welsh, who feels like he has improved his game during the O-D Bowl week. He also knows that he made the right call in Iowa, as this is the place that he is verbally committed to.

Anytime a player can get in a couple extra practices in before heading off to college, it is a plus. And that is what Springboro (OH) offensive lineman Sean Welsh is doing, taking advantage of the chance to play in the O-D Bowl and get in work with some of the country's top athletes.

"It's fun and challenging. I mean you are going against the best in the country and it's a lot different from when you play during the season," Welsh said. "I mean you are used to dominating guys (at the high school level). Here that is sometimes the case and sometimes not, but it's a fun experience.

"One of the things that I learned was I figured out how to pass pro better. I've learned not to shoot my hands out so quickly. It's all about doing the little things."

This could be the chance for the 6-foot-4, 280-pound Welsh to get a small glimpse of what things could be like once he makes his way to Iowa.

So in the end, why will Iowa get his letter of intent for February 2013?

"The Iowa coaching staff. For me it's all about the people and there are great people out there," Welsh said. "Iowa has one of the best fan bases in the United State and extremely dedicated. I just love it and it is the perfect fit for me. It's absolutely the place I will be on National Signing Day."

Welsh said that coaching staff will more than likely use him as a guard, and even possibly a center.
