Haser is one to watch

Wexford (Pa.) North Allegheny defensive end Justin Haser is coming off a junior season in which he recorded 48 tackles and six sacks.

During the course of that season Haser earned a reputation as one of Pennsylvania's finest junior pass rushers.

By the 6-foot-4, 215-pound lineman's own admission, he needs to continue to grow and develop, but he his quickness and ability to get off the ball gives him a shot to play at the Division I level.

So far Haser has received mail from Northwestern, Syracuse, West Virginia, Rutgers, Boston College, Vanderbilt, Indiana, Michigan State, Penn State, UConn, NC State, Bowling Green and Ohio, among others.
