    245 is a little slender to play inside, but who knows what type of frame this kid has or what type of build he has already on that frame as an 11th grader. probably either a typo that has been passed on or he is playing inside out of a need for his high school. sounds more like an edge guy to me.

    He does seem to be in the Alex Barrow-mold (some scouting databases had Barrow as a DT). Maybe Laurinaitis' recruitment/signing can help us if the staff truly does feel Sean is a good fit for us.

    I don't know how to format web pages nicely like a lot of you folks, so here's a copy and paste of 10 rising seniors to look out for in MN high school football. Notice what it says about McWhirter, and also notice the first player listed--Tom Becker, teammate of James Lauranaitis and someone whom Lauranaitis may have been referring to when he said Tressel stopped by to see someone else when he got his in-home.

    Sean has taken unofficial visits to Minnesota, ISU, Michigan State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, and Northwestern. He is wide open at this point, but Nebraska does have a connection since Sean's father played there in the early 80's.
