Newport Harbor High standout defensive end Steve Michaelsen said he has returned from the Pacific Northwest, where he took unofficial visits to the University of Washington and Oregon.
Michaelsen, a 6-foot-4, 235-pound senior this upcoming football season, is being recruited by both Pacific 12 Conference schools, and two other programs in the conference, Colorado and USC, have shown interest. Michaelsen has received offers from Army and Navy.
Michaelsen earned second-team All-Sunset League and Daily Pilot Newport-Mesa Dream Team honors after finishing with 58 tackles and two sacks as a junior.
