Penn Hills junior Hollis Mathis, one of the WPIAL's leading passers, announced Friday his commitment to Howard.

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound quarterback passed for 2,435 yards and 27 touchdowns last fall when Penn Hills reached the WPIAL Class 6A playoffs. Mathis received his first Division 1 offer from Washington D.C. university last May.

An FCS program, Howard competes in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. The Bison found success with another Pittsburgh quarterback recruit a few years ago. Perry Academy's Greg McGhee was the MEAC Co-Offensive Player of the Year in 2014.

Howard's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach is Brennan Marion, a Greensburg Salem graduate who recruits Pennsylvania.
