Malcolm Folk is a talented freshman from Newtown Square, Pennsylvania who recently made a visit to the Pitt football facilities on the South Side.
Folk (6-1, 185) is a cornerback/wide receiver for Episcopal Academy and over the weekend took part in Pitt’s invite-only prospect camp.
He was one of the few freshman invited to the camp, so he’s obviously on the radar of the Pitt coaching staff.
Pittsburgh Sports Now had a chance to catch up with Folk to find out more about him and how his weekend at Pitt went.
“It was a great camp and it was fun going up against some of the top players,” said Folk. “It was also great for me to be able to learn from the Pitt coaching staff and get a chance to really meet them as well. Overall, it was a valuable weekend for me.”
‘I was grateful when Coach Sanders invited me. He told me that mostly seniors would be at the camp but I was ready for the challenge and ready to go out there and show what I can do.”
Getting this platform to compete against that type of talent was beneficial to Folk and allowed him to display his skills to Pat Narduzzi and his staff.
“I think I did well and showed them that I’m a big, long cornerback that can run and pretty good at the line of scrimmage playing man-man press technique,” said Folk.
Folk has a long ways to go in his recruitment but hopes this is the start of a long relationship with the Pitt football program.
“Pitt has been in contact with me for quite some time. I first heard from them over the winter and I actually made it down for a spring practice and talked with the coaches. I love it there, they have great facilities, a great campus and love the coaches and how they run a practice,” said Folk.
“An offer from Pitt would mean the world to me. It would be my first D-I offer, it would be great, just great.”
