Could Wildcats Visit Harbor Again?

Last season Kentucky made in-roads to Harbor College in Los Angeles and wound up landing two of it's top prospects in DeQuin Evans and Chris Matthews. There's another prospect at Harbor who may be ready to get the same kind of attention.

Last season Kentucky made in-roads to Harbor College in Los Angeles and wound up landing two of it's top prospects in DeQuin Evans and Chris Matthews. There's another prospect at Harbor who may be ready to get the same kind of attention.

Defensive end Kyle Sharman is a prospect who should see his recruitment grow dramatically with another good year like last season. "He has a lot of capabilities as a pass rusher, primarily," said George Swade, Harbor's new head coach. "He's 6-foot-2, 255 pounds and runs the 40 in 4.8," said Swade. "He's also a good blocker on special teams."

Last season, playing in seven games, Sharman had 28 tackles, 12 tackles for loss and led the team in sacks with six. He also scored a touchdown off a fumble. Solid numbers for an abbreviated season, but there are things that Swade believes Sharman should work on.

"He's working to keep in shape. Like any defensive lineman, the biggest thing is using his hands (against blockers) to keep people off his legs," said Swade. "If you ask me in a few weeks, I'll tell you (how he projects on the next level)," Swade said. "I think he's got potential. I think he'll meet the standards," he finished.

There's the thought that Sharman will definitely get a look from Kentucky because of the connection with Evans and Matthews, but there's no certainty in it. "I know that Iowa State has inquired about him. So has Syracuse. I'm not sure about Kentucky," said the coach. "If he performs, a lot of people will be after him."

Harbor has their first game on September 5th at at Long Beach City College.
