Huge Oppurtunity for Seeger

Garrett Seeger with Chicago Bears DT Tommie Harris

Illinois athlete <b>Garrett Seeger</b> has been invited to play in the Scout.com, U.S. Army, All-American Bowl in January. Seeger doesn't have the impressive scholarship offers list that most of the participants have but he does have an impressive list of accomplishments at the high school level including a 4.2 GPA in the classroom.

"We went out to Air Force (12-17) last weekend and had a great time," said Phillip Seeger, the father of Garrett Seeger.

"Garrett has official visits set up with Cornell (1-21) and Boston College (1-29) in January. Air Force is the only scholarship offer right now."

Seeger, a 6-foot-2, 195-pound dual-threat quarterback, from Barrington, Illinois is a four-year varsity starter that has compiled 14,162 yards of total offense in his career.

Most schools are recruiting Seeger as an athlete. Garrett is athletic enough to play on the defensive side of the football at the next level as well.

If Seeger does end up at Air Force, he'll be ready. The Falcons run the same option offense that Garrett has been accustomed to running the past four years at Barrington.

Seeger won't be able to put a price tag on the exposure that the All-American game will bring him.

Last year, another relative unknown, Santino Panico, only had an offer from Eastern Michigan before the All-American game and ended up signing with Nebraska in February.

Panico was returning punts as a true freshman for the Huskers in 2004. Seeger is just as good and maybe a little better of an athlete than Panico.

Illinois and Indiana, both have new coaching staffs, that are scrambling to put together a recruiting class.

Don't be surprised if the Hoosiers and Fighting Illini bring Garrett Seeger in for January official visits.
