Super DE Likes Miami

At 6-foot-6 and 245 pounds, Matt Traverso is one of the top defensive end prospects on the West coast. "I love Miami," Traverso said in this interview that talks about his season, his current favorites, and also talks indepthly about the Hurricanes and where they currently stand.

Traverso is having an outstanding season in California thus far. In three games, he has six catches for 105 yards and one touchdown at tight end. Defensively, he has 24 tackles, seven sacks, five batted passes, a caused fumble, and one defensive touchdown on a fumble recovery. Inside the classroom, he's fully qualified (3.3/1200). Traverso was measured at 6-6 and 245 at two different camps this summer was timed at a college camp at 4.72 on track back in July, making him a legit 4.80 kid on grass. That shows off tremendous athletic ability.

Which schools have been calling you this month: Arizona, Illinois, UCLA, Stanford, Florida, Miami, and Notre Dame all call regularly.

Which schools have sent you scholarship offers in the mail: Arizona, Illinois, UCLA, UCLA, UNLV, and Harvard.

If signing day were tomorrow, what's it looking like: I dont have any favorites and I'm not really leaning anywhere yet. But if I had to pick one, I'd go with Arizona. But again, I don't consider them my favorite as I'm wide open.

Have you scheduled any visits yet: Yes sir. I visit Arizona the weekend of October 5. My other four will come from a group of about six or seven or so - Illinois, UCLA, Stanford, Florida, Miami, and Notre Dame.

What's Miami talking about: They've just been calling me telling me how they're looking for kids like me. They like me more for defense.

Talk about Miami: I love Miami. You can't go to a better situation right now. I like their coaches a lot. DJ Williams is from around here and he says he's really happy there. Personally, I'd really like to play for the No. 1 team in the country and that's Miami. I'm very excited and happy they're recruiting me.

Personally, it sounds like if Miami offered Traverso and brought him in for a visit, our chances would increase tremendously. It sounds like he's all about winning and really would enjoy that opportunity here. Since we're calling him reguarly as he says, there's a good chance Matt could get offered a scholarship sometime in the near future, so stay tuned.
