Michigan's New Jersey satellite camp stop saw many talented players stop by and check out the Wolverines' coaching staff in action.
One of the talented quarterbacks that saw firsthand coaching was 2018 QB Artur Sitkowski (Old Bridge, NJ), who loved the experience being coached by Jim Harbaugh and Jedd Fisch.
“I loved it,” Sitkowski said. “Coach Harbaugh was great, Coach Fisch was great. The coaching staffs were great, I loved it. I competed so it was a great day.”
Sitkowski, who holds a Michigan offer, finds himself being extremely interested in what the Wolverines are selling to him. He was extremely complimentary about the development of quarterbacks after only one season under Harbaugh.
“I like Michigan, I love Michigan a lot,” Sitkowski said. “Coach Harbaugh and Coach Fisch, It’s Quarterback U, what more could you ask for? It’s a great place, a great place to be with great academics.”
The camp was an excellent opportunity for Sitkowski to see what Harbaugh and Fisch are like in action. The two coaches left a positive impression on him. However, at the same time, it also reminds Sitkowski that there's always something to improve on.
“It was a positive vibe but definitely a vibe that I need to know I need to get better and improve on a lot of things for me to be an elite quarterback, which I want to be. I’ve got a long way to go,” he said.
Schools that are standing out to Sitkowski as of right now is South Carolina, North Carolina, Michigan, Ohio State, Maryland and Boston College. He plans on attending Michigan's Aerial Assault camp on the 18th,
With a return visit to Ann Arbor, does he planning on ending his recruitment any time soon with a commitment to a program?
“I plan on (committing) by the end of next year’s spring evaluation period,” Sitkowski said.
With more than a year left to go, academics and system are one of the most important factors that will go into his decision making.
“Definitely, one, academics,” Sitkowski said. “Two, the system, the type of offense they play and three, just how I feel around the university and people. If I did get hurt, do I still want to be a student at that university?”
