WeAreSC- What schools are you looking at right now?
Siler- "Definitely USC, USC's on the top of the list.
WeAreSC- So as far as your leaders go, USC is up there?
Siler- "Yeah, USC is definitely in the top 3. The other two would probably be
WeAreSC- Do you have any offers?
Siler- "Nobody has really offered me a scholarship because they're not allowed to come up and talk to me yet. Through the mail they've offered. Stanford, USC,
WeAreSC- As you go through the process, what are going to be the factors that you'll look at in choosing a school?
Siler- "What they want me to play, what I feel comfortable playing at, and when I'm going to play. If I have to sit out because it would make me better then I would sit out. I want to see who's in front of me going into next year. Would I play next year after my redshirt year, or would I not redshirt, or whatever. I want to see who's playing my position and what position I'd be playing."
WeAreSC- I notice that you list a few schools that are farther from home than some others. Is distance from home a factor in your decision?
Siler- "No, it's not a factor. I'll feel at home where ever I go."
WeAreSC- I know you also have a pretty impressive GPA. What kind of role will academics play and do you have any idea about what you want to major in?
Siler- "Yeah, I want to finish and get my education because I have a gift that a lot of athletes don't have. I can do it in the class room too so I definitely want to separate myself by finishing college. I want to major in some type of business. I just don't know what kind."
WeAreSC- You brought up the issue of what position you might play. Where do you play at right now?
Siler- "I played middle linebacker and tight end last year. This year I'll be playing tailback and wide receiver too."
WeAreSC- Where are most of the schools recruiting you to play at?
Siler- "There's a lot of them that are recruiting me just as an athlete because I have played a lot of positions. I've played tight end, linebacker…inside and out, and now I'm going to be playing running back and receiver, so it's kind of hard to recruit me at a position. I play pretty much where ever the team needs me to play."
WeAreSC- Do you have a preference of where you might play?
Siler- "No, I don't really have a preference. I think I'd make a good receiver. I have to see what I run the 40 in at the Nike Camp."
WeAreSC- What is it that has you looking at USC?
Siler- "I watched them play a couple times. I think they're like me, kind of sneaky. They bust you up. You don't think much of them and they come up on you. And I saw they produced the Heisman winner this year and they've won a lot of games. I kind of jumped on USC's bandwagon. I want to check things out there."
WeAreSC- You also mentioned Miami and Georgia Tech, what do you like about each of those schools?
WeAreSC- Do you have any of your stats from last year?
Siler- "No, I'm not real big on that kind of stuff."
WeAreSC- Do you play any other sports?
Siler- "Yeah, I play basketball. I play power forward, the 3 and the 4. I made 2nd team All-Central Florida. I'm running track now. I run the 4X100."
WeAreSC- What's your current height and weight?
Siler- "6'3 ½ and 215."
WeAreSC- What's your best 40 time?
Siler- "I've never run it yet. I've raced people in it but I've never been timed. This weekend will be my first time, the Nike Camp in Gainsville."
WeAreSC- Do you have a max on your bench and squat?
Siler- "I haven't done it in a long time because I'm just coming back from basketball. It's probably like 305 right now. My best is 335. I've never maxed out on squat."
WeAreSC- What are your plans for the summer? Are you going out to any more camps after this weekend?
Siler- "No, the Nike camp is free so that's the only one I'm planning on."
WeAreSC- Do you plan on committing early or would you rather take your trips and go through the process?
Siler- "Yeah, I want to weigh my options. I want to see what everybody has to offer and what the environment is like because if I commit early, there's no telling what I missed out on. I want to make sure I find the right place."
WeAreSC- Do you think you'll be taking one of those visits to USC?
Siler- "Yeah, as long as they like me as much as I like them that will definitely be one of my visits."
