Thomas MacVittie was recruited as Pitt’s quarterback in the Class of 2106. Now it’s time to search for the quarterback in 2017.
Thus far, Pitt has offered prospects Matt McKay and Hendon Hooker both from the state of North Carolina. Could the next offer go to a player from California?
Miles Bryant (6-1, 190) is a quarterback from Bishop Alemany High School in Mission Hill, California. Last season, Bryant played with St. Francis (then transferred) and threw for 1,987 yards, 19 TD, 5 interceptions with a 127.5 QB rating.
“I’m getting real interest from BYU and Ty Detmer and received inquiries from Pitt, Nebraska and Louisville”, said Bryant.
Bryant says that Pitt’s Tim Salem has been the coach that he’s been in contact with and has gotten this feedback from Salem.
“I have a strong arm, pocket presence is advanced, pin point accuracy and I have a bit of the “wow” factor. It would be a blessing to get an offer from Pitt. I would love one to come soon.”
Bryant comes from a football family so he knows how the recruiting game works. His older brother Mason is a receiver at Penn, his cousin Victor Bolden is a 3-year starter at Oregon State, his father (Kennedy Bryant) was a D-1 wide receiver and his uncle, Leland Adams played at Arizona State (1986-90). Yeah, I’d definitely say Miles comes from a football family.
Bryant says, “my uncle, brother and father have said to be patient. Everyone especially quarterbacks are recruited differently and you can’t get too caught up in who has offers and who doesn’t.”
I asked the California quarterback what the strengths of his game are?
“I believe my strengths are understanding the game, I have a strong arm, I understand what the defense allows and what they are trying to do. I also understand that converting on third down is essential and I try not to make stupid mistakes especially in the Redzone. I hear my dad constantly say never turn to ball over in the red zone”, said Bryant.
Sounds like a quarterback to me. Bryant is a really poised, polished kid for being in high school. He’s hoping to hear more from Salem and Pitt but I’m positive wherever he ends up, he’ll be a success.
