UPDATE (5:07 PM)-

Coach Partridge was in Altoona today at and he was there to see PA All-State DT Nick Leamer and kicker Kolton McGhee. Kolton was just offered by West Virginia two weeks ago.

Leamer has started all 47 games in high school both ways (OL/DL) and is 47-0 in those games- 3x State champion. Leamer is 6-foot-2, 285 pounds, has excellent, strength, benches 340 pounds (does sets of 285 x 8 reps currently) squats 500 pounds.

Leamer’s dad is O-Line coach so he knows football. Excellent football IQ and a very good student 1090 SAT’s. Leamer was voted as captain by players and coaches going into senior season.

UPDATE (2:47 PM)-

UPDATE (2:41 PM)-

**Pitt extends an offer to a top sophomore in the Class of 2019. Ronnie Hickman from DePaul Catholic (Wayne, New Jersey) received an offer from the Panthers. Hickman (6-1, 200 lbs) already holds offers from Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State, Notre Dame, Michigan State and Wisconsin.

UPDATE (2:25 PM)-

**PSN has confirmed that Coach Harley stopped by Beaver High School today to talk with OT/DT Bryce Ramer. The All-Conference lineman tells me that they talked about the campus and that Harley invited him to Pitt’s camp on June 11th. Ramer said that Pitt really liked his film and want him to visit in June.

UPDATE (2:11 PM)-

**Florida running back JaVeon Marlow received an offer from Pitt last night. Marlow (5-10, 200 lbs) also holds offers from Nebraska, Vanderbilt, Duke and Kentucky.

UPDATE (1:56 PM)-

Within the hour, Robert Morris received another commitment for their Class of 2017. Point guard Leondre Washington from Roselle Catholic (Roselle, New Jersey) gave a verbal to the Colonials.

Washington (6-0, 170 lbs) also had offers from Fairleigh Dickinson, San Francisco, Towson and was getting looked at by Rutgers and Temple.

I’m told that Washington is a “combo guard with scoring and shooting ability.”

Robert Morris still has two remaining scholarships for the Class of 2017.

UPDATE (1:48 PM)-

**Pitt transfer Cam Johnson is visiting John Calipari and Kentucky today. I’d be surprised if he leaves Lexington without committing to Coach Cal.

UPDATE (1:36 PM)-

**Andy Toole received a commitment last night from a talented junior college forward. Malik Petteway from Northwest Florida State College gave a verbal commitment to Robert Morris. Petteway is a 6-foot-8 power forward who’s originally from Waterbury, Connecticut.

Here’s how a college talent evaluator described Petteway to PSN: “A versatile inside/outside forward who can make shots from 17 feet out. Is an active defender and an excellent rebounder.”
