Following a very strong senior season, look for the recruitment of San Clemente (Calif.) offensive guard Donte Harrington to pick up as we head toward Signing Day.
Harrington was a four-year starter for the Tritons and had a dominant season. He played primarily at guard but we have him rated as a center and was recently elevated to the No. 3 center in the West.
He's a tough, physical lineman with good feet and the perfect amount of nastiness. He's a strong run blocker who can get to the second level and is strong in pass protection as well. He's also a 4.0 student and his recruitment is really starting to pick up.
"Boise State just offered him last week and he has a ton of interest there," Triton coach Jaime Ortiz said. "He has visits set with Army (Jan. 16) and New Mexico (Jan. 23). Colorado stopped by to see him before the dead period and I talked to UCLA about him as well and they appear very interested. Nebraska, Utah and San Jose State all came by as well.
"The kid is a stud, first four-year starter we've ever had here. He can play center or guard and he's all of 295 pounds at 6-2.5. Early on, schools thought he was too small, they thought he was barely 6-1 but he's closer to 6-3 than 6-2 and can play. He's waiting to set up that list visit, we want to see who else offers but I know he's drawing a lot of interest right now."
Harrington will be a late steal for someone and he's a kid that can definitely play at the high Div I level. Check out senior highlights of Harrington above.
