I’m working the phones and Twitter to try and get new material from Pitt’s first official visit weekend. Plus, working the Jim Chaney story and more recruiting news:
**Just heard from OT Zack Williams , who’s currently on his official visit to Pitt. He was kind enough to give me an update on how things are going.
“I’m in love with the city and campus. I feel at home, the players are cool, it’s a great coaching staff and the facilities are amazing”, said Williams.
Sounds promising for Pitt.
**Following Central Catholic’s semifinal PIAA win today, I was informed that 4-star CB Damar Hamlin will host the Pitt coaches tomorrow night for an in home visit. Starting Monday, a dead period begins in recruiting until January 12th.
**The departure of Jim Chaney could impact Pitt’s pursuit of Woodland Hills RB Miles Sanders. From what I understand, Sanders was a big fan of Chaney.
**McKeesport S/RB Khaleke Hudson is on his official visit to UCLA.
