Grant Siegal (Miami, Fla./Gulliver Prep) is getting better and better with each passing day. Last season was his first playing football. Now this offensive line prospect from south Florida has four scholarship offers.

"Florida International was the first team to offer me. Then came Western Kentucky, Robert Morris and Colgate," Siegal said.

Siegal, 6-foot-4 and 270-pounds, took part in his first ever college summer camp after participating at Miami's camp yesterday.

"It was an interesting experience with those coaches," Siegal said. "It was a great experience. I learned if you want to play D1 you have to work very hard. They expect so much from you. You can't take a play off at that level. Miami is showing interest. I have talked with coach [Art] Keogh. I know they like my film."

This weekend Siegal is headed to Duke to camp with David Cutcliffe and the Blue Devils.

"I have also been talking with Boston College," Siegal said. "I know I want to check them out. South Florida has been talking with me a lot and so has UCF. Georgia Tech has also invited me to their camp."

Siegal knows he has come a long way since the beginning of last fall. A good summer and more improvement this season and who knows what can happen.

"I know there are some teams intrigued by me," Siegal said. "I played basketball my whole life. I was just too big to play football when I was younger. Now I am one of the biggest boys out there. I am loving it now. At first didn't know what I was doing but with coaching and hard work it has become more fun and more comfortable.

"I can play tackle and guard. I am quicker than most linemen and I can keep up with the quicker defensive linemen. We have some crazy speed down here. It's ridiculous."
