2014 Intro: Matt Zeitler

National Recruiting Analyst
Posted Apr 4, 2013

Milwaukee Wisconsin Lutheran junior Matt Zeitler talks about the schools recruiting him and how having an NFL brother has helped him.

Milwaukee Wisconsin Lutheran has another Zeitler brother coming up the pipeline, as Matt Zeitler, younger brother of former Wisconsin Badger and current Cincinnati Bengal offensive lineman Kevin Zeitler, is starting to see more schools recruiting him.

Having an older brother who has been through it all has helped the 6'1, 285-lb junior.

"He has helped me a lot with it," Matt says. "He's given me drills to work on at home."

That was important when making the transition to varsity football early in his career.

"I played varsity my sophomore year and junior year. It was really tough. The transition took me awhile to get used it."

While Zeitler has not heard from Wisconsin, he is hearing from a few schools, including several prestigious academic institutions.

"I've gotten a lot of interest from a lot of Ivy League schools like Harvard. I'm going to the North Dakota State camp this summer and probably a couple around Wisconsin here too."

Zeitler plays tackle for his school and occasionally guard. He says he may play defense this year as well. He is projected to the interior as a college prospect.
