Harris LaChance has something that can't be taught, and that's size. At 6'7 225, LaChance towers over opponents on the football field and colleges are starting to take notice.
"I've been hearing from BYU, TCU, Utah, Utah State, Washington, and Wisconsin," LaChance said. "All these schools are reaching out on social media and coming by the school to see me. I think having Andre James at Herriman has been huge for me, because schools drop in to see him, and then they hear about me as well."
LaChance is originally from Seattle, so Washington is one of the schools that has really stood out to him.
"I think going back to Washington would be really awesome," LaChance explained. "They seem pretty interested, Coach Taufalele (Joshua) is recruiting me and we have built up a good relationship. I love Coach Petersen and would really like playing for him, he does a good job getting the most out of his guys."
UW isn't the only school that LaChance is excited about, Utah has been in contact with LaChance a lot this spring and he is high on them as well.
"I've been up to Utah a handful of times this past year," LaChance said. "They've treated me great there, and my relationship with Coach Tuiaki (Ilaisa) is good. My family would love for me to stay close to home, so it feels like a good fit."
LaChance had a good first season at the varsity level, earning all-conference and leading the team in sacks. Since the end of his junior year, he has pack on some muscle and is working on becoming more explosive.
"I felt like last year was good, but not great," LaChance said. "I had some good moments, but was a little inconsistent. This year it is all about dominating the entire game and racking up more sacks. Adding on some extra weight should help out, as well as working on a few new moves to get to the quarterback."
LaChance will also be busy going to camps this summer. The hope is to learn more about techniques as well as to receive more exposure in recruiting.
"This summer is going to be big for me," LaChance claimed. "I am going to All-Poly here in Utah, Wisconsin's camp, hopefully Washington's big camp, and then all the in-state camps too. It is important for me to learn as much as I can and hopefully impress some college coaches."
There aren't too many 6'7 athletes out there, so it isn't surprising that colleges are starting to give LaChance a serious look. With a big senior season, the Herriman defensive end could end up landing some Pac-12 and Mountain West offers.
