    Even at RB ... I don't like Harrison better than Ahmed and we'll likely be taking 2 very high end guys in the 2019 class ... so yeah, he could get buried even if we brought him in as a RB

    Ahmed could be the best RB in the country. I think Coleman has a shot at the NFL, but by mid season I wished his carries went to Ahmed.
    Ahmed at 205-210 next year is a gorgeous thought.

    Looks like a former Husky Legend made a post on KJV's site today about the Harrison situation ... essentially to paraphrase the whole thing was basically that Harrison sees himself as a WR, we viewed him as a DB, that we agreed to disagree, and that it wasn't because Harrison wasn't OKG.

    Here's the thing from my perspective and to further clarify my earlier comments ...

    As Vita was so eloquent in explaining during the media days for the Fiesta Bowl things go in order from Team --> Unit --> Me

    From the first time I saw Harrison's video, I thought if he embraced it he'd have the potential to have a lengthy career as a DB ... when I saw the video I saw Lawyer Milloy.

    As I watched some of his senior video, combined with some comments from @Dennis_DeYoung that were consistent with what I was seeing, you could definitely see a very good option at RB if he was interested in doing that.

    However, at WR, I definitely don't see a player better than Spiker/Osborne, better than what we brought in last class, or what we'll bring in in next year's class. In other words, he'd be likely buried in the depth at UW at WR.

    Let's be honest for a second here ... if you are going to be a high caliber S, you need to have a certain mindset and toughness to play that position well. If you're going to be a RB, while you get a lot of attention, you have to be prepared to get hit in the process. And with the way teams are utillizing multiple RBs now, the glory gets spread and the hits still keep coming. In contrast, at WR, you have the potential to get all the glory that you get at RB without having to take the same kind of pounding.

    He'll end up at Florida St and follow Taggart. Taggart is the ultimate snake oil salesman and him and Oregon were a perfect match for each other. Playing WR in Taggart's offense is like playing a glorified RB. He'll get the ball on WR screens, jet sweeps, etc. without having to take the pounding between the tackles. Whether he has a strong college career or not (and particularly going to FSU, I suspect his potential to be buried in the depth will only increase), playing WR IMO is his worst shot to potentially play in the NFL. But that's fine.

    The reason that I compared Harrison to guys like Wroten, etc. to recently come out of Seattle is because the common trait that I see is a lot of the guys have looked to take the easiest path possible in the short-term while ultimately penalizing themselves in the long-term.

    This isn't an example of where I really blame Petersen for not landing Harrison. Bringing him in at WR will not make us a better football team comparatively to what we can and will get going forward. At RB, there was probably room for a discussion but Harrison wasn't interested. At S he would have been best served long-term but again wasn't interested. To be an elite team you need guys on the roster that are willing to live by the mantra of Team --> Unit --> Me ... and given how Harrison has gone about his recruitment (which he is more than entitled to do), we're not a good fit for him.

    Best of luck to him going forward ... but I personally don't think we'll miss him.

    I don't watch their film till they are signed.
    I generally don’t ... when I do it’s very passive. Harrison was on TV a few times - specifically against Gordon and I watched parts of that.

    If Harrison had an epiphany and decided he was ok with getting a shot initially at WR at UW and if that wasn’t going to work out that he was open to playing either RB or S I’m 100% on board.

    I’d love every talented kid to decide to go to UW and fight through competition ... I’m also realistic to know that kids have all kinds of reasons for choosing a school ...

    5-10 years ago you took all the talented kids and worried about things later because too many spots were JAGs ...

    Now, we can usually get enough talented players where we can say ok good luck to a talented kid in our backyard that has a different vision ...

    Again, and I can’t reiterate this enough, I’d be ecstatic if Harrison chose UW and was open to what worked best down the road.

    You know, in 3-4 years (or less) we're going to be in a position where we'll be able to say "oh well, he'd be a great local recruit ... but we don't have any room ... and i'd rather have that 5* from Mater Dei anyways ..."

    yeah, doogin' like that.

    Kid wants out of Seattle. Everything starts there. I think he's got less than 10% chance of coming back to Oregon (less than 1% actually) but I think he's bound for UCLA or USC.

    I'm thinking it's down to Oregon and Florida state, and I'm leaning more and more towards Florida State.

    What I'm hearing is that it's for sure UW but if it's not it's for sure either Oregon, Florida State, Utah, UCLA, USC, or Cal.

    I feel like I should pay you something.
    If it's not one of those schools it could end up being a school no one is talking about like Utah or Wazzu.

    Paypal $10.95 to UW_Doog_Bot@Doogman.com to find out my Crystal Ball Prediction. It may surprise you!
    So it won't be Utah or Wazzu now that you've talked about them?
