Two lead for Pittsburgh OL?

Pittsburgh (Pa.) Fox Chapel Area offensive tackle Miles Dieffenbach has plenty of reasons to be excited these days.

The 6-foot-5, 277-pound lineman recently picked up offers from Florida State, Minnesota and Northwestern. Apparently he is interested in all three schools, as he stated in a recent interview.

"I definitely have an interest in all those schools," he said. "They're definitely good programs. Minnesota is on the rise, Northwestern was just at the Alamo Bowl, and Florida State is the kind of program that's always going to be up there.

"I would definitely like to try to (visit), but there's nothing officially planned yet."

Dieffenbach went on to say that over the summer he would, ideally, set up five trips to schools that have offered scholarships. That said, he has not made any plans yet.

So why is he so anxious to have a busy summer?

"I'm probably gonna commit at the end of the summer," he explained. "Maybe during the summer. Whenever it feels right."

He went on to talk about a couple of favorites, before mentioning that he's keeping an open mind.

"Definitely Pitt and Florida State, but I like all the schools that have offered," Dieffenbach said.

"Both are top-notch programs with great history. Florida State was the team of the 90's, and they've got coach Bowden and the great tradition. Pitt has the national championship and things look great under coach Wannstedt."
