Constantine talks recruiting

It's still very early in the recruiting process for junior Bellevue (Wa.) LB Sean Constantine, but things picked up relatively recently when he received his first offer. spoke to the tackling-machine and he updated us on where things stand and his thoughts from his visit to Montlake on Saturday...

"I got offered by Washington (a little while ago)," Constantine told "Coach (Steve) Sarkisian and coach (Mike) Cox said they liked me and they basically put it out there that they were offering me.

"They are one of my favorites and I'm really excited about it. My mom and dad are really excited. My mom was ecstatic when it happened."

On Saturday, Constantine headed to Montlake to take in Washington's game against Hawaii and said he had a great time.

"Oh yeah, it was really cool," Constantine said. "I had a great time. It was a good game and the Huskies won. It was great to see a win."

On the recruiting front, Constantine has already mentioned that Washington and Oregon are his two early favorites, but says he'd like to be patient and wait for a while before he even starts thinking about making a decision.

"I'm still a junior, so I have a long time," Constantine said. "Seeing guys like Jake (Eldrenkamp) and some of those other guys go through (the process), I've sorta started thinking about when I'd like to make a decision.

"I'd like to make the decision early, probably before my senior season so I can have it out of the way and focus on school and football, but I have a lot of goals I want to accomplish and I don't want to make a choice and then have it be the wrong one, so I'll probably wait.

"Right now I'm just enjoying the whole process. It's great to have that first offer, but I haven't really thought about deciding or anything."

Last year as a sophomore on Bellevue's state championship squad, Constantine played the middle linebacker position, but he said he's not opposed to moving outside.

"I feel like I'm aggressive and I read things well," Constantine noted. "I don't know what (Washington) likes me as. I can play inside or outside, it's not really a big deal to me."

We will have more in the coming months on this rising star in the state of Washington for the 2013 class.

On Friday, Constantine and his Wolverine teammates play host to Interlake.
