Sean Harlston

Compton's Sean Harlston a two-sport prospect in 2019

Sean Harlston has already started being recruited as starting quarterback of Compton Dominguez' football team and basketball attention will likely follow for the 2019 point guard.

The percentage of potential college athletes playing multiple sports has consistently decreased over the years but there are still a handful of prospects without off-seasons.

One such prospect comes from Compton (Calif.) Dominguez in Sean Harlston, who is the starting point guard on the basketball team, the starting quarterback on the football team and also runs track.

Harlston is just starting to get noticed in basketball but he claims a San Diego State offer as well as Washington and Florida State interest in football, a sport his father played at Texas A&M.

The 2019 prospect is also well on his way in basketball. He’s got good size and length, tremendous lateral quickness and the handle and vision to create for others or get to the basket.

“I see the floor well, I pass, I’m athletic and knock down my jumpers,” Harlston said. “I always try to get my teammates involved. “I need to get better at shooting and always making the right play when I get into the paint.”

It’s early into Harlston’s recruitment in both basketball and football but he doesn’t plan on giving either up any time soon.

“In college I want to try and play both,” Harlston said. “Whatever my coaches allow me to do, I’ll do it.”
