Beavs want to bring MLB back home

BELLEVUE LINEBACKER PROSPECT Sean Constantine moved to the Evergreen State from Oregon when he was in the 8th grade. Oregon State, who has put an offer on the table for the 6-3, 220 pound middle ‘backer prospect, would like to see him return to Oregon for his college days.

Sean Constantine unofficially tripped to Oregon State recently.

"I like OSU," said Constantine. "It's a nice place and Mike Riley is a great guy. He has an outstanding personality and you can tell he really has a care for his kids."

Oregon State and the other schools recruiting him see the 6-3, 220-pounder as an inside linebacker.

Constantine is rated three stars and the No. 20 inside linebacker prospect nationally. But he might jump up even higher when the next round of rankings comes out in late May.

Constantine now has offers from six Pac-12 schools – Oregon State, UCLA, UW, WSU, Colorado and Utah. He said he wasn't positive if Arizona had offered but thought they too might have recently put a full ride on the table.

"(WSU is) kind of an unknown for me, a lot of schools are really, but so far I've talked to some of the coaches at Washington State and they seem really nice, they seem like they're really good coaches," said Constantine.

CONSTANTINE HAS BEEN to Oregon State and plans to take in the UW spring game. He also plans to take more unofficials later this summer, though those trips are still in the planning stage.

Constantine said a summer commitment, say in June or July, could well be in the cards.

"I'm trying to do it early," said Constantine. "As soon as I know, then I'm done. I don't want to be the guy on ESPN with 50 hats… I'd like to do it my before senior year and just focus on the season, that's really important to me. And I want to show respect to the coaching staffs, that's really important to me, too."

Constantine was named first team all-state and all conference as a junior. Defensive stats for the state title game, (Bellevue claimed its fourth straight Class 3A title in December) but prior to that, Constantine had 92 tackles, including 10 for loss plus a 47-yard interception return for a touchdown.
