Palm Harbor University OL Mark Hansson, one of Pinellas County’s most heavily recruited seniors, said today that four schools are currently even at the top of his list.

They are: Colorado State, Florida International, Indiana and Harvard.

“They’re all pretty much up there,” Hansson said. “Every school has something unique that I really like about it.”

The 6-foot-6, 260-pounder recently made an official visit to CSU, and plans to see both Harvard and Indiana in December.

The trip to watch the Rams went well.

“It was great,” Hansson said. “I loved it. I went to the game, went out to dinner, met with players and coaches, and then went to Halloween parties after that. That was fun.”

The wildcard might be Connecticut. Although UConn hasn’t offered, a Huskies assistant was at PHU today to state his program’s interest.
