Seattle (Wash.) Garfield 2018 athlete Treshaun Harrison (6-1, 190), had a huge week last week.

It started with Harrison landing his first three offers, one from the SEC and two from the Pac-12.

It concluded with Harrison having a big impact on Garfield's 51-21 win over crosstown rival Rainier Beach, keeping the Bulldogs unbeaten and handing their rivals their first blemish of the season.

Harrison had 101 yards on six receptions and a touchdown catch and ran for 101 yards on 11 carries and two touchdowns in the win, putting the exclamation point on the week.

"The win meant a lot to me because these are our rivals," said Harrison.  "I wanted to get after it.  I had a big week with the offers and I had to back it up on the field. I read my blocks and made some big plays."

It was the big play ability that drew Harrison's first three offers, starting out with Missouri and followed up by Washington State and UCLA.

"Getting those offers meant a lot to me too," said Harrison. "It meant my hard work is paying off."

The offer from Missouri surprised Harrison.

"The first one from Missouri was surprising because it's from the SEC and I hadn't really heard from them," said Harrison.

The other two were a little less surprising but unexpected nonetheless.

"I got my second one from Washington State and that one meant a lot to me because Washington State is one of my favorite schools," said Harrison.  "I didn't even know that they were looking at me.  Then Coach (Eric) Mele offered me.  It is great to have an opportunity to play in the Pac-12."

A little bit later that evening, UCLA offered.

"The UCLA offer was huge for me," said Harrison.  "I've looked into the school and it's a great campus and I could see myself playing there.  Coach Tui (Marques Tuiasosopo) offered me.  UCLA is a good program in a great location and I want to get down there.  They like me for a bunch of positions, as an athlete."

Harrison said that schools are recruiting him as an athlete, but he has a preference for one side of the ball.

"I prefer to play on the offensive side of the football but I'll play wherever the coaches want me," said Harrison.

Harrison lives in Seattle, not far from the campus of the Washington Huskies and he was at their game against Oregon State over the weekend.

"Washington hit me up a week ago and invited me to their game (on Saturday)," said Harrison.  "They haven't offered yet but they said that they're watching me.  And if they offered, my interest in them would be really high."

This season, Harrison has 772 yards receiving on 40 receptions with five touchdowns while rushing for 355 yards. He's added two interceptions and a sack defensively.
