Huskies Offer 2016 OL Prospect

A new name has emerged on the recruting front, JSerra Catholic (San Juan Capistrano, Ca.) G/C Nick Harris and late on Tuesday the versatile offensive line prospect earned an offer from the Huskies...





Last weekend, Harris, along with friend and teammate Luke Wattenburg, who has been committed to Washington for the past three months, took an unofficial visit to Montlake and he was blown away by what he saw and experienced.

"It was incredible," Harris told Dawgman.com. "The facilities were amazing and Coach (Chris) Strausser and Coach (Chris) Petersen are great coaches and the city of Seattle is a great place.

"It's a place where I felt comfortable."

While sitting down with the Husky coaches, Harris said he got the low down on where they stood on the recruiting front.

"They said they want to offer but they can only take two lineman in the 2016 class and since Luke's committed, they were waiting on Michael Eletise's decision," Harris said.

Eletise chose Arizona on Monday night, so on Tuesday, the Husky coaches gave Harris a call and extended him an offer.

"Coach Strausser called and offered," Harris said. "He said it was because I'm more athletic than most offensive lineman and my Football IQ is high and I play with a nasty streak."

The offer from the Huskies is Harris' third, joining the two he already had from New Hampshire and Cal Poly while Boise State, Colorado, San Diego State, San Jose State and Kansas have all been in touch as well

With Wattenburg holding down the left tackle spot for JSerra, Harris handled the right side as a junior last season, but this fall he will be at his more natural position -- center.

"Most of the schools said they want my early game film from this season because I made the transition to center," Harris said. "They want to see how I play at that position basically because realistically that's what I would at the next level.

"I love (center). I love commanding the line and getting to the second level."

Harris could be close to making his decision and we will have more news on his recruitment in the coming days after he weighs his options.
