4-Star OL Miles McVay set to announce commitment

Miles McVay is set to announce his commitment decision Thursday at 7:15  p.m. CST.

McVay is a product of East St. Louis High School in Illinois. He will choose between Alabama, Jackson State, Michigan State, Missouri, Oregon and Texas A&M.

The Illinois product had a very busy summer. He officially visited Florida, Oregon, Michigan State and Arkansas in June. McVay also spent a few days in Tuscaloosa in June for an unofficial visit.

McVay’s June visit gave his mother and uncle an opportunity to see what Alabama has to offer

“My mom and my uncle went down with me this time,” McVay told Touchdown Alabama after his June visit. “I had coach Saban talk to my mom, and they had a great conversation. It was not really me and him talking this time. My uncle is a big Alabama fan, and he is an extremely big Nick Saban fan. He knows how he is and everything, and he got to meet him. He was ecstatic. My mom asked a lot of questions at the academic center. Saban ensured her I would be okay if I ever went to Alabama.”

McVay returned to UA last weekend for the Crimson Tide’s champion’s cookout. Alabama has been actively recruiting McVay since he picked up an offer last year at camp. The Tide’s defensive line coach Freddie Roach and their offensive line coach Eric Wolford have developed a great relationship with the four-star recruit

“I talk to coach Roach a lot because he is the recruiter for my area,” McVay said. “We established a good relationship early. I knew Coach Wolford when he was at Kentucky. I have been talking with him for a minute now.”

At 6-foot-7 and approximately 340 pounds, McVay has a wide frame with long arms. He blocks well in space and has shown the ability to get to the second level.

The Alabama target is looking for a program that will help him be the best he can be.

“I am weighing who can develop me, of course, I want to win,” McVay said. “I come from a winning program at East St. Louis High School. I am pretty sure every school I am talking to right now has the ability to take it to the next step and win a championship. I also want to get on the field. NIL is important, of course with opportunities, but at the end of the day, I want to be the best I can be. It is going to be a factor, but it is not going to be the deciding factor.”
