Welsh talks all-star game

Last week Ohio offensive lineman Sean Welsh was in Houston to play in the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl. We caught up with the Iowa commit to talk about the all-star game experience, other schools recruiting him, what he has heard from the Hawkeye coaches recently, and much more.

Q: What was the whole experience like for you last week playing in the all-star game?

WELSH: It was a lot of fun. I met a lot of great people and had a great time. It was fun challenging myself going up against the kind of talent that was there and seeing what it's like to play at that level.

Q: Did you end up playing right guard mostly or did you kind of move around?

WELSH: I kind of moved around because we only had three guards, so we had a rotation. I moved from right guard to left guard quite a bit and did all right.

Q: How did that transition go after playing tackle mostly in high school?

WELSH: To be honest, for me, guard is a lot easier than tackle because you have a lot less space to work with. It was closer quarters, so it kind of limits the defensive guy as far as where he can go, but when you're out on the edge he has a lot of room to work with. I enjoy going head to head with guys where if they want to beat me, they have to go straight through me, so it was fun.
