Three schools coming hard at OT Sean Rhyan, where USC stands

November 5, 2018

San Juan Hills four-star All-American OT Sean Rhyan is the best player in the country not many have ever heard of. 

He didn't attend camps, he rarely does interviews and that's what I love most about him. Rhyan lives in the moment and doesn’t get carried away with what may happen in the future. He knows time will be required to search for his future school, but right now his main concerns are his teammates and helping the Stallions win a CA State Championship.

Althiugh he’s not a prospect we talk much about, his play on the football field earned him an invitation to the Adidas All-American Bowl and scholarship offers to several elite schools.

Three of those elite schools are pursuing Rhyan hardest right now and others are showing strong interest.

We spoke to Rhyan about USC, UCLA and Washington, the three schools he hears from most.

The Trojans offered Rhyan last year and while he hasn’t visited USC often, Clay Helton and his staff have made the trip to San Juan Capistrano to see Rhyan multiple times this Fall. But one of the coaches he communicated with weekly from USC is no longer coaching at the school.

We asked Rhyan if Neil Callaway’s departure will significantly impact his recruitment.

”Yes, but not really at the same time,” he said. “It’s a business and coaches come and go. I’ve already started talking with Coach (Tim) Drevno and we’ll start building a relationship.”

Rhyan broke down what he likes from USC, UCLA and Washington.

USC: “I love Coach Clay Helton’s philosophy of faith and family. It’s actually like a brotherhood at USC, which makes you closer than a family. You can rely on everyone to help you. I felt that when I was at USC. Everyone was welcoming and everyone was willing to help out.”

UCLA: “I like talking to Coach (Chip) Kelly, because he has a different look on things. I don’t want to say he’s Zen like, but he has a relaxed and methodical way of looking at things. I’ve been talking a lot with Coach (Justin) Frye. He’s a younger guy and he’s doing a good job with the OLine. 

WASHINGTON: “I’ve been talking with Coach (Jimmy) Lake, Coach (Pete) Kwiatkowski and Coach (Chris) Petersen. All of them are good guys and Washington is a great school.”

At this time, Rhyan has no official visits planned and won’t even commit to saying there are schools he knows he’ll visit. 

“I’ll take official visits to the schools I know I really have interest in,” said Rhyan. “I don’t want to waste a schools time and money with a visit, if I don’t have any interest.”

We expect USC, UCLA and Washington to get Official Visits, with ASU possibly getting one too, but nothing is certain for Rhyan at this point. 

What we do know is, Sean Rhyan is one of the most talented football players in the country and at some point in January (All-American Bowl week), a lot more people will see for themselves.
