Another UW Stop for Seitz

Even with his team marching toward an undefeated season and a WIAA Division 1 state championship, Hartland Arrowhead junior linebacker Matt Seitz had time to visit Wisconsin's campus for the Badgers' game against Minnesota.

MADISON - Hartland Arrowhead HS is one of the more premier high schools in the state of Wisconsin and they were in full force the this past weekend's game when Minnesota came to town.

Some of the big names to come from Arrowhead to the game were junior defensive end Billy Hirschfeld, Wisconsin 2014 offensive guard commit, George Panos and safety Matt Seitz. Seitz got to be a part of a big rivalry game and thought it couldn't have gone any better.

"It went great," Seitz told Badger Nation. "I talked to Coach Buh a lot and a few other coaches. After the game, we went inside the locker room and I talked Derek Landisch (who's from my high school) and Chris Borland. We then got to see the axe and I got some pictures of me holding it with George Panos and Billy Hirschfeld."

The young talented safety had a really hard time trying to pin point one thing that really stood out to him, so he talked about everything he loved on his visit.

"Just the tradition the university has," Seitz said. "The jump around after the third quarter, the battle for the axe and all the amazing fans."

During the visit, Seitz got to interact with not only with Buh, who he has establish already a great relationship with, but also got to see what his fellow teammates thought of the visit.

"Our relationship is great," Seitz said of Buh. "He asked me how we did Friday and he said he is watching me very closely. I just talked to George Panos and Billy Hirschfeld. We all brought friends so there was just a bunch of Arrowhead kids I got to hang out with. I do think we all had a great time."

Seitz got to rate what he thought of his experience this past Saturday and Badgers will sure be happy to see the result of that.

"I would give it a 10," he said. "A lot of different coaches showed interest in me, we got to be on the field for a long time and we got to talk to the players in the locker room after the game."

In addition to visiting Wisconsin, the 6-2, 215-pound linebacker has already visited Nebraska and Northern Illinois and plans on visiting Wisconsin this weekend when the Badgers take on Michigan State. Seitz also hopes to see the Spartans play Northwestern in East Lansing November 17.

After finishing up his visit to Madison, where did the Badgers put themselves for the in-state prospect?

"They're still right on top of the list," Seitz said. "They're a great school and I would love to get a chance to play for them, but I'm still keeping all my options open. I've recently gotten letters from Missouri and my coach said Northern Illinois is really interested in me, but Wisconsin is still my leader."
