Junior Prospect: Sean Sester

Sean Sester is a towering offensive tackle from Highland High School in Fort Thomas, Kentucky. I recently visited with Sean to discuss the early stages of his recruitment.

Many expect that the 2004 recruiting class for the Louisville Cardinals will have a number of impressive offensive lineman. With one such prospect just north up I-71, the Louisville staff may not have to look far for one.

Sean Sester (6'8, 270) plays for traditional Class AAA power Fort Thomas Highlands High School in Northern Kentucky.

His size alone will attract attention from programs throughout the region and once the season kicks off, Sester can expect to start hearing from just about every coach in this part of the country.

A number of schools have all ready started making regular contact with the senior to be. Sean informed me that Louisville, Kentucky, Miami (OH), Cincinnati, Michigan, Indiana, Alabama and Michigan State are among the programs taking an early interest in him.

However, three are currently giving him a little more attention than the others.

"Kentucky, Miami of Ohio and Louisville have been showing the most [interest] so far," said Sester.

According to Sean, those three programs have been sending hand-written letters, in addition to the regular mailings that most schools send to prospects.

When asked what he is looking for in a school, Sean indicated that he'd like to play close to home.

"I'm looking for a place with a good atmosphere and good academics," explained Sester. "I also want to play somewhere kind of close to home. It doesn't have to be real close, but somewhat reasonable so people can come and see me play."

Sester is projected as an offensive tackle and will be one of the most sought after linemen in the State of Kentucky this recruiting season.
