Sean Harlow is a consensus 3-star recruit across all major recruiting services and was a highly sought-after player.
The 6'5", 260-lbs offensive tackle, who may have projected better inside at guard or center, has decided to pledge his future to Washington, as reported by Erik McKinney of ESPN.
Nebraska was thought to be one of the favorites to land him after he took the long trip from California to Lincoln twice in only two months.
Although the distance from home may have put a lot of players off, Nebraska and Oregon State were thought to be the two leaders in the recruiting chase for his services.
Recent 2013 Nebraska quarterback commit Johnny Stanton was also a junior high school teammate of Harlow, so it was easy to believe that Stanton could have a word with Harlow and maybe help recruit him to the Huskers.
Nebraska is lucky to have good depth at the offensive line position right now, but this forces the Huskers into chasing more 2013 offensive line recruits.
After all, they only have one at the moment: Dan Samuelson, who committed in May after decommitting from Pittsburgh after they originally offered him.
Nebraska only added three offensive lineman in the 2012 class, so I'd imagine they will go hard after another one or two big men in the coming months.
