"Matthew is a special talent and we can't wait to start working with him. He is a two-time Footlocker finalist, and finished in the top six for three years in a row at the Illinois State cross country championship. Matthew is one of the most accomplished high school runners we've recruited to Harvard and he should make an immediate impact." – Coach Saretsky
