Panthers Offer Rising Star

With-in 24 hours of picking up his first two scholarship offers, Cranberry Township (Pa.) Seneca Valley quarterback Kevan Smith (6-3, 215, 4.7) was just offered by the University of Pittsburgh.

Smith went to UPMC to camp with the Panthers this morning.

"I threw for 15-20 minutes and they said they'd seen enough," Smith said. "Coach [Dave] Wannstedt told me he thinks I could lead them to championships at the University of Pittsburgh. I was about to yell I commit, it would be a great situation for me because I could play behind Tyler Palko for a year, and then battle Bill Stull for the starting job. They're my favorite right now, no doubt about it."

Smith did not pull the trigger today though.

"I wanted to commit, but they said sleep on it," Smith said. "So I'm going to see what's out there and then me and my family will come back in July and discuss things. I already got to tour the facilities and everything. It was great, I just feel like I've known those guys for a while."

Smith lead his team to victories in the final two games of the 2004 season, when he managed to throw for 517 yards and seven touchdowns.
