Siegel of La Crosse, Wis., it might be tough to tell whether UND football coach Bubba Schweigert or UND men’s basketball coach Brian Jones were more interested in recruiting the high school seniors to Grand Forks.
Maag and Siegel are both averaging more than 20 points per game playing basketball this winter.
On Wednesday, though, they were two key pieces of Schweigert’s 2018 football recruiting class, which came during the NCAA’s early signing period, a recruiting window previously reserved for February.
In total, UND announced 20 additions during the early signing period.
Maag, a 6 foot 5, 205 pound wide receiver for St. Croix Lutheran High School, turned down a walk on spot with the in state Minnesota Gophers to hold true to his commitment to UND.
“I love it there,” Maag said. “The community is amazing, and I really like the coaches. They loved me, and I wanted a college that really wanted me.”
Maag finished his senior season with 25 catches for 771 yards and 12 touchdowns. He was a Minneapolis St. Paul Star Tribune All Metro Second Team selection and was named to the Twin Cities All District Team.
Siegel, a 6 foot athlete expected to play cornerback for the Fighting Hawks, was one of five Wisconsin players signed by UND during the early signing period.
As a senior, Siegel rushed for 391 yards and a touchdown, while adding 34 receptions for 521 yards and seven touchdowns. On defense, he totaled 47 tackles with a forced fumble and interception.
“I was 100 percent committed from the start,” Siegel said. “UND was the right school for me and the right fit. I’m ready to get going.”
Early in his high school career, Siegel fashioned himself more as a basketball player in the future, especially after his sophomore season of football was wiped out with an injury.
“He has unbelievable quickness,” La Crosse Logan head coach Casey Knoble said. “He’s one of the best I’ve seen as far as not losing any speed when he makes his cuts. He also has a willingness to work and get better and ask questions. Character wise, you’re talking about a top of the line kid. With that athleticism and attitude, he’s a coach’s dream.”
Siegel impressed UND coaches at the team’s elite camp over the summer.
“We feel like he can develop into an excellent corner,” Schweigert said. “We like the way he competes. He committed to us early and stuck to it. Those are guys you want in your program. We feel like he’s a really good fit for us.”
In addition to Maag and Siegel, UND coaches pointed to Wisconsin product Mike Bruner to have an opportunity to play early in his career.
The 6 foot 3, 215 pound linebacker committed to the University of Iowa early in his prep career before reopening his recruitment.
