A theme growing in recruiting is getting teammates to go to the same college to continue playing together. Juda Parker and Pauly Asiata both from St. Louis from Honolulu are both heading to Colorado, and now it seems that long time Wake Forest commit Will Harlos is backing out after visiting Colorado this past week. He will now be heading to Colorado to play with his high school teammate Stevie Dorman:
Harlos, a 6′4″, 195-pound prospect from Somerset, Texas, has decided to forego his commitment to the Demon Deacons, and will instead follow teammated Stevie Dorman to Boulder. The deicision was obviously not an easy one for Harlos. "It is incredibly stressful right now. It is going to be up to me in the end, but I am going to go home and talk about it with my family ... I don't know what is going to ultimately help me make this decision, but I hope I know soon."
Harlos played linebacker for Somerset, and was the unanimous selection for his district's defensive player of the year. As a senior, he played primarily as rush end, but as Harlos fills out his 6′4″ frame, he may play at safety for the Buffs.
Harlos is rated between a two- and three-star player, depending on what recruiting service one looks at. His listed 40 time of 4.54 is fast enough for him to transition to play safety at the college level, and his height is a huge plus in the secondary since a lot of defensive backs top out at an inch or two above six feet.
Colorado is currently up to 15 verbal commits with one singed player in junior college quarterback Brent Burnette, so the Buffs should be busy tonight and through signing day tomorrow to round out their class.
