One of the Bluegrass State’s top offensive line prospects is in the process of narrowing down his list of schools for official visits.
Ft. Thomas (Ky.) Highlands tackle Sean Sester has picked up scholarship offers from Kentucky, Louisville, Purdue, South Carolina, Michigan State and Miami of Ohio.
“I think he’s got a couple of visits set up with those, but I’m not sure of the exact dates,” said Highlands coach Dale Mueller. “I know he likes Kentucky and Louisville a lot, the players and the staffs they have at those two schools. Their new coaching staffs have done a much better job of getting out to the kids in state and recruiting them hard.
“I think he’s pretty high on Purdue as well. We had an All-American linebacker here, Brent Grover, who’s now in his third year and starting as a defensive tackle for Purdue. Sean has followed his career there, and I know he respects what he’s done both as a player and a student there.”
Sester (6-8, 275, 5.0) is having a tremendous senior season for the 9-2 Blue Birds.
“He’s just been able to dominate,” Mueller said. “He gets up on guys, and just drives them backwards. He does well out in space, too, because he’s got great, great feet.
“That’s what all the college coaches see – the great body and feet. He’s a kid that’s 6-8, 275 and looks lean. Ordinarily, that would sound ridiculous to say a guy who weighs 275 is lean, but Sean is. You see him with his shirt off, and he looks like a body builder. He’s a kid who could wind up carrying 350 pounds and be in the pros someday. We’ve had some good ones here at Highlands, and he rates right up there with the best.”
He also maintains a 3.3 GPA and has a qualifying score on the ACT.
