PA tight end has growing list of options

While Miami is not typically one of the first schools to offer an out of state prospect, it's not surprising in the case of tight end Brock DeCicco. After all, if any program has an eye for talent with that position it's the 'Canes.

Miami and Pitt are now joined by two other schools which have offered DeCicco.

"Cincinnati and UConn both offered me (Tuesday)," he recently reported. "I talked to both coaches and I also got the scholarships in the mail.

"I would consider both schools. Cincinnati passes a lot, so that would be really good."

DeCicco has certainly proven himself as a quality pass catcher in the high school ranks. Last year at Jefferson Hills (Pa.) Thomas Jefferson he snagged 19 balls for a whopping 393 yards and six touchdowns.

"I've also been in touch with Florida, Wisconsin, Miami, Pitt, Maryland and Iowa. I went to that one camp at State College but I don't know if I'll do anything other than that (this summer). I might just go visit some schools, but I really don't know at this point."

DeCicco plans on making his decision sometime before his senior season, but noted that he does not have any leaders at this point.
