The major recruiting databases list Cameron Miller as a wide receiver and a cornerback, which makes sense considering he stars as a two-way playmaker at Winslow Township High.
Pitt is recruiting Miller — a 5-foot-11, 170-pound four-star athlete from New Jersey in the class of 2025 — as a wide receiver though.
Tiquan Underwood has established a relationship with Miller recently, which resulted in an official offer Friday, and Miller is excited to continue building a bond with Underwood.
“It’s been pretty good,” Miller told PSN. “The relationship (with Underwood) is great, I love it. I feel like it’s a very good relationship and definitely will get stronger. I feel the connection with Pitt a lot, and it’s definitely a place I can consider going to.”

Pitt joined a growing list of offers that already includes Boson College, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan State, Nebraska, Penn State, Syracuse, Temple, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
Winslow Township head coach Bill Benton informed Miller of the offer Friday, which like any offer, always feels good, but he’s already begun learning more about Pitt.
He recognizes that Pitt’s wide receiver corps is going through a changing of the guard now, but he’s seen the level of talent that Pitt has produced at the position over its history — especially recently. And while he’s not completely familiar with the program, he’s excited to learn more.
“Because I don’t really know as much, with this relationship and obviously me going up to visit, I’m working to learn more,” Miller said.
There isn’t a set date planned for a visit to Pittsburgh yet, but he’s hoping to either make it out this winter or potentially for a practice in the spring. His other visits include schools like Virginia Tech and Georgia in the future, among others yet to be decided.
As just a sophomore, a sophomore coming off an excellent season in which he racked up 436 yards and a team-high six touchdowns on 29 receptions offensively and 38 tackles (26 solo) and a pass breakup defensively, he’s a rising recruit.
247Sports rates Miller as the 43rd-ranked recruit in the class of 2025 (third-ranked cornerback and the top-ranked recruit from New Jersey). Rivals hasn’t rated him yet, but it’s only a matter of time.
It’s a matter of time, a lot of time in this case, when it comes to Miller’s eventual commitment. He’s a rising junior, so he has a long way to go, but Pitt has worked its way in already.
“The way they come off, it’s a very good relationship,” Miller said. “I feel the connection. And it’s a spot where I could thrive.”
