We knew Scooter Harrington was popular.
After all, Harrington, a tight end from Greenwich who is ranked as the No. 2 player in Connecticut, was the East winner of the American Family Insurance #DreamFearlessly Fan Vote contest to earn the final roster spot for the Under Armour All-America Game. Harrington got 81.59% of the votes in his final-round matchup.
That popularity extended to college coaches. While Harrington seemed locked in to Boston College — the school where his parents went and his father played defensive tackle — he announced Sunday night on Twitter that he was flipping to Stanford.
Harrington presents the dual skills of being able to catch the ball but also isn’t shy about lining up as a blocker.
“I’m different from other tight ends because I can go down the field and catch balls,” he told USA TODAY High School Sports before the Under Armour game, “but I pride myself on being a blocker.”
