Orchard Park, N.Y. offensive guard Michael Senn has pulled in his first offer. The 6-foot-4, 300-pounder is gaining interest from a number of other colleges after a huge junior season.
"Our team went undefeated and we won the class AA state championship," he said. "I was second team all-state, first team all-Western New York, first team all-league, first team all-conference and I won the junior trench trophy which goes to the best junior lineman in western New York."
Regarding his play, Senn discussed what stands out about his game.
"I think it's the fact that even though I am 300-pounds, I am not fat," he said. "I have a thick chest and big legs, but not a big stomach."
Recruiting wise, Senn holds one offer to date.
"I only have one offer right now for the University of Buffalo," he said. "I have been in contact with Rutgers, Temple, Boston College, Missouri, NC State, Pittsburgh, Penn State, Syracuse and Iowa.
"The rest of the schools are telling me they are interested and want me to come to their spring practices or games to visit the school. Also, they want to make sure I attend their camp and stay in contact."
With respect to Buffalo, Senn is intrigued.
"I like the offer a lot," he said. "I have a great relationship with the coaching staff and it is nice and close to home. I would like to wait and see what happens in the future before I do anything though."
To date, Senn has visited Buffalo and NC State, but is working on a visit later this week to either Penn State or Syracuse as well as a trip at the end of April to Rutgers.
Does he like any schools?
"I like all of the schools a lot," he said. "They are all great schools with great programs.
"The most important thing for me is how the academics are and the chance for me to get a degree. I want to study either wildlife biology or exercise science. Then, the football program and the team are next most important. Finally, I'm interested in the location of the college. Those are my top three things I'm looking for in a school."
