Update with UM Signee: OL Harland Gunn

OL Harland Gunn, a U.S. Army All-American, is looking to contribute right away.

Harland Gunn (Omaha, Neb.) is a 6-foot-2, 300-pound offensive lineman looking to contribute right away at either guard or center.

"I will play wherever they want me," Gunn said. "I am considered a guard, but I know they need a center so I will play anywhere."

Gunn played a little of bit of center while he was down in San Antonio for the U.S. Army All-American game.

"I was getting frustrated because switching to a new position I didn't really know how to snap too well so I had to learn that week against good competition," Gunn said. "But I have been working on it lately and I can snap it real well in shotgun or under center. I am pretty good now."

Gunn plans on being down in Coral Gables either late May or early June for summer workouts. He wants to get to UM as soon as possible to begin working towards earning playing time like Jason Fox did a year ago as a true freshman.

"I most definitely want to contribute any way I can," Gunn said. "I am real excited and I can't wait until I graduate. I am counting it down."

Currently, Gunn is working out at the school and taking advantage of a nutrition class he is in this semester.

"Coach Shannon has told me too much about my weight, just said not to gain too much weight," Gunn said.

A number of freshmen take time in deciding a major, but Gunn plans on majoring in engineering.
