Recruit Profile: Sean Carney

The first defensive lineman to commit to Tulane for the Recruiting Class of 2005 was Sean Carney (6-3, 240, 4.80) of Jesuit College Prep in Dallas, Texas. Head Coach Bob Wunderlick commented on Carney's prospect in college, "I've been here eight years and he probably the most ready for the next level of anybody we've had since I've been here."

"Sean is dedicated in the weight room and on the field. He's a specimen. Sean wasn't a great player when we got him. He never played football before his freshman year. He was tall and lanky (about 180 pounds), but Sean is very motivated to succeed," said Wunderlick.

"He has a great work ethic. Sean plays hard every snap which you don't always see in linemen. He's still working hard now. He explosive and quick off the ball. Sean is big into powerlifting," continued Wunderlick. Carney reportedly benches 320 pounds and squats 475 pounds.

Carney finished his high school career with two consecutive highly productive seasons. As a junior, he recorded 49 solo stops, 13 tackles for loss, 8 sacks, and 12 quarterback hurries. As a senior, Carney had 78 total tackles (57 solo and 21 assists), 17 tackles for loss, 5 sacks, 16 quarterback hurries, 2 fumble recoveries, and 2 forced fumbles. He was named All-District 10-5A.

Carney not only takes care of business on the field, but also in the classroom. He's fully qualified with an 87 grade point average and a 1240 his last SAT.

Carney chose Tulane over Southern Methodist, Rice, Baylor, Wyoming, and Harvard. When asked about his recruitment, Wunderlick stated, "It really was out of Tulane and SMU…I'm happy Sean is going to Tulane, and I'm sure Tulane is going to be happy to have Sean."
