Harlow leaves Lincoln "impressed"

It was San Clemente high school (CA) offensive lineman Sean Harlow's first recruiting visit to the Midwest, and the soon to be senior was impressed.

San Clemente high school (CA) offensive lineman Sean Harlow is currently the No. 21 offensive guard in the country and has an impressive offer list to go along with his rating. Nearly the entire Pac 12 has offered (Stanford and USC), with Big Ten programs like Nebraska and Wisconsin also throwing their name into the mix.

On Saturday, Harlow was in Lincoln for the Nebraska Cornhuskers' Big Red Weekend and walked away with good impressions.

"I was really impressed, it was more than I expected," said the three-star prospect. "This was my first time to a Big Ten school, I was impressed with the facilities, but I still have to make it out to Wisconsin and maybe Purdue. All I can say is it was really impressive. It's definitely one of the nicer schools I have seen."

With Harlow visiting schools like Boise State, Oregon State, Oregon, Utah, Colorado, Washington, UCLA, and USC already, his remarks regarding Nebraska's facilities is high praise.

The soon to be senior says he is in no rush to make a decision, but it will likely come before the end of the summer.

"I talked to Coach Cotton and Coach Garrison a lot today," said Harlow. "They just told me that I would be a great fit there inside the program with the way I play."

With over 20 invite only prospects in attendance, Harlow said it was nice to spend his time on Saturday with other recruits.

"It was cool to meet other guys you don't really know, but are good football players," said Harlow. "It was nice to see what a potential Nebraska football team could look like down the road with everyone there."

Harlow played opposite of five-star 2012 tackle Kyle Murphy last season. It was obvious his talents would not go unnoticed when teams were looking at Murphy. But Harlow's development would have probably been watched closely anyway due to Sean's father Pat Harlow – a former USC Trojan All-American.

So what if the Trojans offered?

"USC is the school I grew up rooting for but I'm going to be basing my decision on a lot more than that," Harlow told Fox Sports in an earlier article. "Don't get me wrong, USC is a great school with great tradition but I'm going to be looking in to every aspect of every school on my list."

We will have more on the soon to be senior later in the week.
