Wayne State the Place for Matt

Wyandotte Roosevelt's Andrew Matt is an impressive athlete who could play multiple positions in college. No matter where he lines up, Wayne State is happy to have him as Matt became the latest commitment for the Warriors.

Andrew Matt was an All-State selection this year. He started at wide receiver and safety and performed well on both sides of the ball. On offense, he had 57 receptions for 789 yards and 10 touchdowns and he added 42 tackles and three interceptions on defense. At 6'2, 205-lbs, he could play a variety of roles in college. On Wednesday, he made a verbal commitment to Wayne State and talked to us about his decision.

What is the position outlook for you in college? Where might you line up?
They are bringing me in at Safety but project me as an Outside Linebacker once I get bigger when I start training with them.

Which other schools had offered you?
Ferris State offered last night after I visited them this weekend. I had more visits set up every weekend throughout the month.

So what was it about Wayne State that made you decide to be a Warrior?
I chose to be a Wayne State Warrior because Coach Winters and Coach Heffernan did a great job recruiting me and they have said how much they have wanted me to become a Warrior. They told me I was one of the first kids they offered during the summer when I went there for their camp. The feeling of being wanted there was great. The program is also on the rise and the recruiting class so far has been pretty strong. Also, getting a degree from Wayne State almost always puts you one up against the degrees from other schools in Michigan.
