"My decision came down to Pitt and West Virginia. I really liked both school. I sat back and asked myself where I could see myself playing. I simply kept coming back to Pitt. I really liked the coaching staff. Coach (Dave) Wannstedt and staff had a true interest in me on and off the field. I just thought, why wait?"
Matha previously attended Pitt's junior day. He is capable of bench pressing 365 pounds, squatting 525 pounds and running a 5.2 forty-yard dash.
"I decided to call Coach Wannstedt today before I lifted weights. He was really excited to add me to the program. Pitt wants to rebuild their offensive line and I want to be part of that. I believe I can push for early playing time if I work hard. I'm excited about my decision."
Matha earned first team Class AAAA Associated Press All-State and PA Football News All-State as a junior. He has been a two-year starter at offensive and defensive tackle.
