Multiple sources are reporting that offensive linemen Sean Harlow out of San Clemente, California has committed to the Huskies.

Since it’s multiple sources – and I really don’t care who got it first – I will go with Erin McKinney of ESPN.

From his story

Offensive tackle Sean Harlow (San Clemente, Calif./San Clemente) did plenty of research this summer, as the 6-foot-5, 260-pound lineman took unofficial visits to several schools, including Nebraska, California, Oregon State and Oregon. But in the end, it was his final visit — to Washington this past weekend — that made his decision an easy one.

“I’m going to be a Dawg,” Harlow said. “It just felt right. I slept on it after getting back from the visit and had time to really evaluate things. I feel like Washington is the place for me.”

The three-star tackle held offers from some Pac-12 and national heavyweights, including Boise State, Oregon and Wisconsin. But head coach Steve Sarkisian and his Huskies staff closed strong.

“Almost all the coaches there are young and there’s a lot of young energy,” Harlow said. “It was mostly just a feel. The stadium is going to be amazing to play in. The recruits are so fired up to be a part of something special.”

Harlow is the son of former USC standout offensive tackle Pat Harlow, who was selected in the first round of the 1991 NFL draft by the New England Patriots. Harlow was recruited by the Trojans, but was never offered. Now, he said he is excited to start his own legacy in purple and gold.

Harlow is rated as a three-star recruit by ESPN, a three-star recruit by Scout.com and a three-star recruit by Rivals.com.
