2014 Lyons Township (Ill.) rising senior wide receiver Matt Mrazek has two offers, from Eastern Illinois and Lafayette and has been hearing from plenty of Ivy and Patriot league schools. Mrazek caught up with FOXSports NEXT after the West Suburban confrence 7-on-7 at Addison Trail.
"I am doing well out here today," Mrazek said. "It is good to get out here we had a light practice this morning and its good to get out here and get a view of our conference."
Even though Mrazek has a couple offers under his belt, he has been making plenty of improvements during the offseason.
"Really just my overall game as a wide receiver, sophomore year I got called up as a receiver for the first time and since then I have been working with Don Beebe of Aurora Christian at the Don Beebe House of Speed," Mrazek said. "Just kind of perfecting the whole receiver aspect of my game. Route Running, breaks, releases things like that. It was new to me last year so I am just looking forward to a breakout year this year with what I have learned."
Mrazek's first offer came from Eastern Illinois then Lafayette shortly after, during the Northwestern Showcase.
"It was great, I don't think that it was the compete fulfillment of my goals, because I am far from done," Mrazek said. "The season is still ahead of me, looking to pick up plenty more offers and I am really excited for the season. It was great to get that weight off my chest though."
And what is Mrazek going to show during his senior season?
"I think just my toughness and my tenacity, I think I am a bit defensive minded but a player who plays offense," Mrazek said. "I love to hit, So you know I am not going to have alligator arms or anything, I love to get out there across the middle. I think that helps separate me from many wide receivers."
The recruiting process has been a fun but unique one for Mrazek, who has taken several visits and will take a few more.
"I have been to Harvard, and have another trip planned o the east coast to Lafayette and Penn," Mrazek said. "I am going to take a visit to Eastern Illinois, but it is hard to get out with all the football commitments that I have for Lyons."
