Offensive guard Mike Miranda will add to the large number of offensive lineman and players from the state of Ohio that will attend Pitt’s Junior Day.
“I’ve never been down to Pitt yet so I’m excited to get on campus and see what the program and university are all about”, said Miranda. “I’ve heard the city and campus are great places.”
Players attending Pitt Junior Day that are from Ohio: Mike Miranda (Stow, Ohio), athlete Lynn Bowden (Warren, Ohio), OT Matt Sichterman (Kings Mill, Ohio), DT Derrius Mullins (Columbus, Ohio), TE Charles Reeves (Steubenville, Ohio), OT Joel Honigford (Sugarcreek, Ohio), OT Thayer Munford (Cincinnati, Ohio), S Keontae Jones (Cincinnati, Ohio).
Miranda is a 3-star player that has offers from Vanderbilt, Syracuse, Penn State, Northwestern, Iowa State, Illinois and Boston College.
“I’m not looking for much on the visit that will go into my decision making process but stuff like the campus and facilities will play a role”, said Miranda. “One thing that I’ll ask the Pitt coaches is how they can help me play football at the next level.”
What does Miranda like most about Pitt?
“I like the fact that they play in the ACC and that they are close to home and things are always pretty intriguing when they share facilities with an NFL franchise.”
Miranda will have a busy weekend, visiting Northwesten on Saturday, Pitt on Sunday, then he’ll head to State College next Sunday.
“I haven’t limited my options yet but Penn State, Pitt, Northwestern and Syracuse have all caught my eye lately”, said Miranda.
“I’ve set a commitment goal of early to mid May but that could change from now until that time.”
