Seitz's Big Ten Summer

Hartland (WI.) Arrowhead linebacker Matt Seitz has been making stops around Big Ten country and talks about how his summer is going

Hartland (WI.) Arrowhead linebacker Matt Seitz has had a Big Ten type of summer by recently attending camps at Wisconsin and Minnesota. He talks about how his Wisconsin camp experience went and the interaction he had with other attendees and Secondary Coach Ben Strickland.

"It went well," Seitz told GopherDigest. "My times were solid with running a 4.7 forty time, 4.3 shuttle time and 9'8 board jump. I went up with my friend from Catholic Memorial, Alec Kocour. We both talked to Coach Strickland a lot and talked to a few other recruits."

"Obviously, I talked to my teammates George Panos, Billy Hirschfeld and Sam Seonbuchner, but also with Hudson Walton and Luke Rassmussen. When I talked to Coach Strickland, he told me to just keep working because it will all fall into place. He is not sure where I stand in terms of scholarships, but he likes how I play and he likes my attitude."

Madison wasn't his only stop so far this summer, as the 6-2, 215-pound linebacker made his way to Minnesota earlier and got to really bond with Quarterback Coach Jim Zebrowski during his time there.

"Minnesota really likes me," said Seitz. "Coach Z pretty much talked to me the whole camp. He is a great coach, whenever we talked there were always lots of laughs and he's always real honest with you. If Minnesota were to offer me, then they would become real high on my list. They have a great campus, great academics and have a rising football program."

He is now shifting his attention from the camp circuit to his team and is working on personally getting ready for his senior season.

"I'm all done with camps except for I may go to Iowa State in July, but that's unlikely," said Seitz. "I may also visit Butler and North Dakota, who I both have offers from, but for now I'm just working out with my team and doing other speed training."
