Seitz Impressed with New Facilities

One of the many Hartland (Wis.) Arrowhead players on Wisconsin's radar, linebacker Matt Seitz got to see the new facilities and meet the new coaches Saturday.

MADISON - One of the many visitors Wisconsin and head coach Gary Andersen hosted on its first major junior day, Hartland (Wis.) Arrowhead middle linebacker Matt Seitz got his first opportunity to start building a relationship with the Badgers' new coaching staff.

"It went well," Seitz told Badger Nation. "I talked to Coach (Ben) Strickland a little bit, (and) then the linebackers got to talk to Coach (Dave) Aranda. Coach Andersen talked to us as a group, so I got to find out what kind of coach he is and I really liked him. We got to see all the new renovations such as the weight room and it was huge."

While the 6-2, 215-pound Seitz didn't have a long talk with any coach, he did get the opportunity to briefly chat and see where they are at.

"The conversations were good," said Seitz. "Coach Aranda showed us some schemes they run on defense and it seemed to be simple but productive. I also talked to Coach Drewek, the recruiting coordinator a lot. He just said he really likes me and that they want to see me at camp.

"When I talked to Coach Strickland, he just said he is glad to see me and everything. From what I saw from Coach Andersen and the staff, Badgers fans should be really excited for this season."

With many recruits in attendance and all the new upgrades, Seitz was able to share his impressions with a lot of familiar faces.

"I talked to my teammate Sam Seonbuchner, Alec Kocour (Waukesha Catholic Memorial), Brandon Hines (Mequon Homestead) and Michael Ruf (Darlington)," said Seitz. "We were just talking about how cool the new facilities were and talking about our seasons. The highlight was seeing the new weight room. It was really advanced and had a lot of different machines in it."

After taking a visit to Wisconsin and getting to spend time with some of the coaches, Seitz plans on probably attending a Badgers camp this summer and visiting Minnesota on April 20. Those are the only visits he currently has scheduled.
