Murrysville (Pa.) Franklin Regional offensive tackle Sean Hickey figures to be one of the state's top linemen in the Class of 2010 and he showed why this summer at a few camps.
The 6-foot-6, 280-pound tackle also has a clear leader, and if they extend an early offer he would likely commit.
"This summer I went to the Pitt camp back in June," Hickey explained. "I went to the National Underclassmen Combine and then I went to the Ultimate 100 in Matawan.
"I think they went very good. At the first one I got strongest man and finished in the top two in the one on one's as offensive tackle.
"Our first game is this Friday. We've had two scrimmages so far and our offensive line did very well. I feel I did very well, too, and I'm just going to keep working and do my best to put together some good film."
Which schools will he be sending that film to?
"I want to send film to Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Maryland, Syracuse and Oregon," he said. "They're the schools that have been sending me stuff.
"Pitt is my favorite school. I've grown up a Pitt fan my whole life and I really like what they're doing. They're in a rebuilding stage but I think they're going to be very sound this year. They're moving in the right direction."
When asked, Hickey said he would likely make an early commitment to Pitt if the Panthers decide to extend an offer.
