UM DE prospect: I'm committed right now

Anthony Chickillo is one of the state's premier defensive end prospects and he's committed to Miami. What's he saying about the Virginia Tech game? Miami's season? His commitment status? Read on for all those answers and more.

Anthony Chikillo's senior season ended on Friday night.

"It ended Friday when we lost in the playoffs. It was good, I had a good year. I finished with 18 sacks, 140 tackles, two interceptions and three touchdowns. I had a good year."

Chickillo, 6-foot-3 and 230 pounds, committed to Miami earlier this year and talked about the Virginia Tech game.

"I watched it, just another loss. They were doing good, it was just another game they could have won but didn't. I am committed right now."

Chickillo says he's still being recruited by a number of programs.

"Pretty much all the schools that offered me are still trying to recruit me. Yeah, I am still considering them. I am going to be taking some visits soon. I have not figured out who yet, but I am going to be taking some. I take my official to Miami in December 20 something."

The standout defensive end, who claims a 3.8 GPA and a 25 ACT score, talked about Miami's 2010 season.

"They didn't have the season that everyone was expecting. I think they have enough talent to turn it around next year."

Chickillo talked about his relationship with other UM recruits.

"I talked to Nick Menocal when I was at the Florida State game, that's the last time I talked to him. I don't know the deal with Teddy right now, but I usually talk to him. I haven't talked to him in a while, he used to text me all the time, but now he doesn't."

One of the reasons Chickillo committed to Miami is because of his relationship with the coaches.

"You know I have a good relationship with the whole coaching staff at Miami. I have a good relationship with all them, I wouldn't say there is a main coach I talk to."

Chickillo went to the Miami/FSU game earlier this season and talked about that.

"I went to the FSU game and there was a lot of traffic. It took us 4 hours to get into the stadium and we were only 9 miles. That wasn't too much fun. It was a good atmosphere; there were a lot of people there. The game didn't turn out the way I wanted it to. That night they had a lot of trouble stopping the run so that is one thing that could have turned it around that night." Recommended Stories
