Seibert Adds Sooners

Seibert Adds Sooners

Belleville West (Ill.) kicker Austin Seibert picked up another major offer this week. He talks about it here.

Austin Seibert, ranked the nation's number one kicker by Kohl's Kicking Camps, picked up an offer from Oklahoma this week and says the Sooners definitely have his attention.

"It's amazing. I'm really excited about it. I've been down there. I went to their first junior day. Everything I saw was state of the art. I loved it. I've been talking to Coach Boulware at least once a day."

With the spring evaluation period upon us, Seibert has been a popular stop for college coaches and he has tried to return the favor by taking visits himself.

"I've had two schools come watch me kick, Tennessee and Oklahoma. Northwestern, Illinois, Missouri are coming this week and Indiana and Penn State are coming too. I went to Mizzou Saturday and am planning a visit to Oklahoma as soon as I can."

That trip to see the Tigers was a good one for Seibert.

"The visit was fun. I had been there before for a junior day type deal so it was kind of good to be escorted around in a golf cart."

He added, "they are towards the top with Oklahoma."

When Seibert does decide, he wants to make sure he will have the support he needs to reach his goals, namely, playing beyond college.

"I want a coach who can push me to get the best out of me and help me progress as kicker -- someone who understands kicking quite well because I'm trying to make it to next level after college. Every university has nice facilities. All that I need is someone there to rely on to help me." Recommended Stories
