Orchard Lake (Mich.) St. Mary's has become one of the top football factories in the Midwest and after watching the tape on St. Mary's quarterback Justin Siller it's easy to see why teams are lining up to get his commitment.
The 6-foot-3, 178-pounder looked great at last year's NIKE Training Camp in Ann Arbor. He then went on the field and threw for 1,600 yards and 19 touchdowns with only one interception. He also rushed for 500 more yards and an additional 11 scores.
That type of play has already prompted Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota and most recently Northwestern to offer a scholarship.
"Northwestern offered me last week," Siller, who was named all-Catholic league, all-county and honorable mention all-state as a junior, said. "I'm looking at Illinois, Indiana, Miami, Minnesota, Northwestern, Ohio State, Penn State and Georgia Tech."
Siller asked to remove both Virginia Tech and Michigan from his list. Penn State is a team that definitely interests him a lot after attending the Nittany Lions' junior day a couple of weeks ago.
"It went really well," he said. "I liked it a lot down there. I got to watch them practice and scrimmage. I talked to Joe Paterno, Jay Paterno and Mike McQueary. They explained to me that they are not a school that offers a lot of kids right away. They take things a little slower, but that doesn't mean they won't offer.
"They just explained to me that they take their time."
Siller plans to attend the Illinois spring game coming up, and he'll also make stops at the Columbus NIKE Training Camp and then the EA Sports Elite 11 Regional Workout in State College.
