The University of Pittsburgh recently received a verbal commitment from massive junior college offensive tackle Jeff Otah (6 foot 7 inches, 330 pounds) from Valley Forge Military Academy in Wayne, PA. Panthers' Head Coach Dave Wannstedt and staff would like to add a high school tackle to develop behind Otah. Their first choice appears to be athletic Andy Miller (6 foot 6 inches, 260 pounds) from Trinity High School in Washington, PA, Macon has developing into a viable candidate. Miller is set to visit Pitt this weekend.
When asked if he felt he was overlooked because he played in the Pittsburgh City League, he quickly replied, "Yes, I really feel like I was overlooked and under recruited. Maybe I didn't get enough exposure."
"I feel like I bring a lot to the football field. I'm quick for my size, I have a strong knowledge of the game and I have good footwork. My wingspan is a great advantage as well."
Macon is an excellent student with a 3.1 grade point average. North Carolina State has yet to offer him a scholarship. Howard and Eastern Michigan have recently been in contact. The Oliver Bears have finished their year with a 7-3 record. They were 6-2 in league play. Kevin was the City League discuss throwing champion as a junior. He attended the Panthers home game against Syracuse.
"I would be highly interested in Pitt if they offered. Hopefully I will have the opportunity to visit. It would be great to play for my hometown team."
