Power 5 Scholarship Offers: None
Seidl is your textbook under-the-radar prospect. His only other scholarship offer is from Wyoming and few recruiting services outside of 247 Sports have had a chance to evaluate him. But Seidl is a multi-sport athlete who is long, fast, and athletic. He is a two-way player in football, flashing his speed and ball skills on offense and defense. Seidl also runs track and plays hockey. He is expected to play cornerback at Minnesota, where he will need to refine his technique as a defensive back to go along with the physical tools.
