Brandon Pertile commits to Trent Miles, Georgia State football

Jim Brown-US PRESSWIRE

The Panthers new coach picked up his first commitment on Tuesday, an offensive lineman from Florida.

A coach is only as good as his players, which is why the first thing a new coach usually does is hit the recruiting trail.

Trent Miles, Georgia State's new coach, is no different. Miles picked up his first official commitment on Tuesday from Brandon Pertile, a 6'6, 290 offensive lineman from Clearwater (courtesy of the Atlanta Journal Constitution):

"Coach Miles is the new coach; he came to my school today to talk with me," Pertile said. "He told me about transforming the football program, and it got me really fired up. It seems like a good place to spend the next 4-5 years."

Pertile, a two-star recruit, was also being pursued by schools like Florida Atlantic, Florida International, Coastal Carolina, Garnder Webb and Florida A&M.

The Panthers coaching staff expects him to play as a right tackle at the college level. He's only the 10th commitment in Georgia State's 2013 recruiting class, so you can expect Miles to be pounding the pavement over the next few weeks as he tries to make his own mark on the fledgling program.
