The first member of Pitt’s Class of 2021 recruits is a good one. Brock McMillen went 41-4 as a freshman and placed 2nd at PIAA states at 113 pounds. His sophomore year he went 43-1 and was a state champ at 126. He is 54-1 in bonus point matches having been majored once. He has 39 pins so far.
“I’m very excited to announce that I will be furthering my wrestling and academic careers at the University of Pittsburgh! I cannot thank my parents, coaches, and teammates enough for the support they have given me! #h2p,” Brock posted on Twitter.
Rob Waltko, host of The Open Room podcast on PAPowerWrestling called it a “great get for Pitt”.
Additionally, PAPowerWrestling recently released it Class of 2021 Pennsylvania recruit rankings. They have McMillen 3rd. From the report:
“Glendale superstar Brock McMillen entered high school with an impressive resume and a #3 ranking in the TIF of 2018 Report. He hasn’t disappointed in two seasons making the State Finals twice and coming away with a title in 2019. McMillen won a loaded 126 pound bracket in Hershey including a win in the finals over 3-time State Finalist Chase Shields (Bishop McDevitt).”
FloWrestling has him ranked as the 55th best wrestler in the country for his class.
Keeping top local talent is a must for Pitt to have success. This is a good step in that direction.
