Good morning and happy July 5th to you! Just a reminder that if you have any ideas on additions or ways to improve the site, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. My partner at PSN, Joe Steigerwald and I are meeting on Friday to talk about that plus plans for the upcoming football season. We’d love to hear your suggestions.
** Could Pitt be close to a commitment? Interesting tweet late last night from Ohio CB Josiah Scott who simply said: “Decisions, decisions.”
Of course that could mean nothing or it also could mean that a player that Pitt really likes is about ready to make a college decision. Stay tuned.
UPDATE (8:46 AM)-
** Elite Florida DE Jake Lichtenstein has made his plans for after the “Dead Period.” Lichtenstein tells me that he will visit Virginia followed by a trip to USC and then Alabama. Keep in mind, he recently visited Pitt and announced a Top 6 of Pitt, California, USC, Virginia, Alabama and Georgia Tech.
UPDATE (9:31 AM)-
** Plans for after the “Dead Period”? Washington DC center Johnny Jordan tells me that he’s probably done with visits for the summer. Philadelphia cornerback Kenneth Bennett says that he plans on visiting Maryland and hopefully North Carolina.
UPDATE (10:03 AM)-
** Just got word that Plantation, Florida 3-star WR Dontavius Butler will be visiting Pitt shortly after the “Dead Period” is over (which is Sunday). I’m told that Butler is deciding whether he can visit during the week or on the weekend. From everything I know, Butler is a heavy Pitt lean and I could see a commitment happening.
UPDATE (1:57 PM)-
** Learned of some interesting news concerning an elite recruit and Pitt. Nathan Proctor is a 4-star linebacker who holds offers from California, Florida, Georgia, Louisville, Miami (FL), Mississippi, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Penn State and Virginia Tech. The kid is legit.
Source tells me that many of these programs are trying to get Proctor to make a visit to their school in the next couple of weeks. I’m told that Proctor would like to visit Pitt first and is trying to figure out a time when his parents can come with him. Getting the first visit could be important because Proctor starts practice on August 10 and only has a small window to check out schools.
