Georgia State’s new football coach has landed his first recruit for the Panthers.
Brandon Pertile, a 6-foot-6, 290-pound offensive lineman from Clearwater, Fla., has committed to Georgia State. He picked the Panthers over Presbyterian, Florida International, Florida Atlantic, Coastal Carolina, Gardner-Webb, and Florida A&M.
“Coach (Trent) 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 is projected to play right tackle at Georgia State, which has 10 commitments for 2013.
