Stanford offers N.C. lineman

Charlotte (N.C.) Catholic offensive tackle Mark Harrell is one of the top linemen in the Mid-Atlantic region and the offers are piling up.

The 6-foot-5, 260-pound tackle has received offers from schools both near and far, and his most recent offer is from a school on the other side of the country.

"I just got an offer from Stanford today around 4:30," Harrell told Rivals.com.

"I did talk to them. I talked to coach (Pep Hamilton) and then coach (David) Shaw. It's a fantastic academic school and it's big-time Pac 10 football, so it's very good."

Harrell has also drawn offers from programs like Notre Dame, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Michigan, NC State, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest and West Virginia.

While he claims no favorites he said he will start to narrow his list significantly after the spring.

Over the weekend Harrell visited Clemson and enjoyed his time with the Tigers.

He will be visiting many of the other schools that have offered him in the weeks and months ahead.
