WPIAL Star Matt Sieg Receives Latest Offer from Big Ten Program

Matt Sieg is continuing to receive hype in a rapidly evolving recruitment.

Sieg — a 6-foot, 170-pound athlete from Fort Cherry in McDonald, Pa. — holds offers from Akron, Nebraska, PSU, Pitt, Syracuse, WVU and Wisconsin, and he’s playing quarterback and defensive back at the high school level. It appears likely that Sieg will be recruited primarily as a safety, but wherever he ends up on the field, he’ll be one of the highest-recruited WPIAL players in the class of 2026.

And he added his latest offer Wednesday from P.J. Fleck and the Minnesota Golden Gophers.

Sieg was recently elevated to a four-star recruit by 247Sports, which makes him a consensus Top-150 recruit in the class.

Sieg was electric as a sophomore at Fort Cherry, completing 82-of-146 pass attempts (56%) for 1,650 yards with 20 touchdowns and three interceptions, adding 227 carries for 2,234 yards (9.8 yards per carry) and 39 touchdowns. And he racked up 20 tackles (13 solo), a tackle for loss and three interceptions defensively.

“As a quarterback, one of the first things that jumps off the page is his ability to run. Matt’s someone who’s always been able to move really well. He gives teams a lot of troubles in the run game. He’s working on becoming a more balanced quarterback. At safety, he understands what offenses are trying to do and he’s just to centerfielder back there. He can cover a lot of area — we are able to takeaway half the field with him off the top. His physicality is a little under rated. He likes to get his nose down there and make tackles.”   — Fort Cherry head coach Tanner Garry

247Sports rates Sieg as the 140th-ranked recruit in the class (12th-ranked safety and fifth-ranked recruit from Pennsylvania) while Rivals rates him as the 175th-ranked recruit in the class (13th-ranked athlete and fifth-ranked recruit from Pennsylvania).

The class of 2026 is getting closer and closer to being in the spotlight, and Sieg is going to be one of the top targets nationwide.
