Pylon 7v7 YSU: Steven Frank

2016 QB Steven Frank discusses his improved game, his talks with Michigan, other schools of interest, camping at U-M and more.

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- Steven Frank looks like a Division 1 quarterback.

On Saturday, the rising sophomore put on a passing display, with a combination of pinpoint accuracy, touch and arm strength in the Pylon 7v7 at Youngstown State.

His performance, further justified his first season as a starter at Oswego (Ill.) High.

"I did pretty good," Frank said on his sophomore season. "I didn't play much freshman year. I feel like I had a lot confidence by the end of the season. I had pretty good stats for a sophomore."

Currently, Frank holds a Illinois State offer. However, he says is hearing interest from Michigan, Syracuse, Tennessee and Illinois. He says he will be throwing in front of the Syracuse coaching staff on Monday.

And while there is no set date with Michigan, he says there has been discussion of throwing in front of U-M offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier in the near future. He has already started building his relationship with the Michigan coaching staff, and has been on multiple visits to Ann Arbor, as well.

"I have visited Michigan twice now," Frank said. "It was pretty good (up there). I just stayed for the practice. I like the coaches there. it was nice meeting Nussmeier for the first time. He was a pretty cool guy."

And his conversation with Nussmeier was pretty positive, to say the least.

"He said he liked my film," Frank said. "He can't wait to see my film. It seemed like he liked me a lot."

At 6-foot-4, 215-pounds, Frank admits there has always been a certain affection towards the Wolverines growing up.

"Well my whole family has always liked Michigan," Frank said. "I used to go to every opening game."

Frank says he plans on camping at U-M this summer.

"I want to show them my footwork," Frank said on upcoming camp expectations. "I think I have pretty good footwork. I got pretty strong arm, too."

Along with Michigan, Frank says he plans on camping at Illinois.
