Harlow's versatility intrigues schools

One of the top linemen out west this year promises to be San Clemente (Ca.) OL Sean Harlow and with his versatility, he could play almost anywhere along the offensive line. Dawgman.com spoke to the talented prospect and he updated us on where things stand as far as recruiting is concerned...

"I'm up to five offers now," Harlow told Dawgman.com recently. "I've got Washington, Colorado, Utah, Oregon and Oregon State and a few other schools are getting close to offering, but they haven't quite yet."

One thing very appealing about what Harlow can do on the field is his versatility. As a sophomore he played both guard spots and last season he played right tackle, opposite Kyle Murphy, one of the top linemen in the country, and he earned All-League honors while also being named Second Team All-County and Second Team All-State by several publications.

"This year, with Kyle gone to Stanford, I'm going to move over the the left side," Harlow said. "It's something I take a lot of pride in. We rely on our quarterback to make plays down the field and my job is to keep guys off of him.

"I love playing all the different positions. It makes me feel a total part of what we are doing and any way I can help, that's what I'm gonna do.

"Last year we didn't pass much because our line was so dominant and we had a couple of great running backs, but this year we'll pass it a lot more, so the pressure will be on me and the rest of the line."

With his offer from the Huskies, Harlow said he's very interested in coming up for an unofficial visit next month during spring football.

"I'd like to get up there for some of their spring practices and to see the school and meet with the coaches," Harlow said. "I like the coaches and coach (Tosh) Lupoi is a great guy. I think it will be interesting to see the school and get to know the program a little better. I don't have that much knowledge about the school, so I need to do a little more research on them."

As far as when he plans to make a decision, Harlow said he isn't really sure at this point, but he does know what he wants to see from the school that he eventually signs with.

"A lot will depend on the overall feel I get and the comfort-level I have there," Harlow said. "It isn't so much about the coaches, because they can come and go, but I want to get to know the players and some of the other recruits they are after and see how I feel with them because they are the ones I'd be playing with and going to battle with every week."

We will have more from Harlow in the coming weeks as he continues through the recruiting process and we will update news as it happens.
