It's already been a pretty big summer for Woodland Hills corner Trevon Mathis. He's camped at Pittsburgh, Toledo, then back to Pitt again for a 7-on-7, and another 7-on-7 at Georgia Tech. His head coach, George Novak played at Georgia Tech.
He did well enough at the Pitt camp to be invited back for another evaluation, and unofficial visit. No offer from the Panthers yet, but he's feeling good about his chances.
"It's real close," Mathis said. "It went great, the camp went great. I got invited down again for an evaluation, and it went good. Everything's going real good right now."
He's also picked up a few other offers recently.
"Georgia Tech, Old Dominion, James Madison, Kent State," Mathis said. "Next week, I'm going down to Georgia Tech for another 7-on-7. That's all I have planned for now."
While his head coach went to Georgia Tech, he says there's no pressure to go there. However, with the offer from the Ramblin' Wreck, and some close contact with Pitt, he's excited to have a couple ACC schools interested in him.
"The ACC, that's great," Mathis added. " That's definitely exciting."
Prior to competing with his team at the Pitt 7-on-7, Woodland Hills played host to the Football Camp For The Stars--a football camp for children with Down Syndrome. Mathis and his Woodland Hills teammates serve as coaches, along with players from Thomas Jefferson High School. Novak, along with Thomas Jefferson head coach Bill Cherpak oversee the camp, along with San Francisco 49ers defensive line coach Jim Tomsula.
"The atmosphere is great, I love it," Mathis said. "Just giving back, that's all it's about for us."
Mathis, up to 6-0, 173 now, says he's being recruited as a corner. He caught five passes for 109 yards and a touchdown.
