So, Dan Marino just wanted to meet former North Hills hoops star Nick Smith (P-G Fabulous 5), who now plays at Nova Southeastern (Fla.). I'm not surprised. It's just legend wanting to meet a legend. https://t.co/mCKTKbZI5S

**Following Pitt’s Junior Day, we ran a story with reaction from players that were in attendance, this morning a couple of more players contacted PSN with their reaction to the day.
Matthew Lombardi, 2020 OT, Philadelphia, PA.
“I really thought the city was great. The people of Pittsburgh sure love their college football and it really showed. I thought the facilities were top notch and I love the focus on developing good, young men that the program currently have. What probably stood out to me the most was just how the Pitt football team doesn’t just settle for good enough to play. They want their guys to have a meaningful college experience.”
Reid Holskey, 2020 OL, Pataskala, Ohio:
“My trip down to Pittsburgh was fantastic. The facilities were some of the nicest that I’ve seen. The day went real smooth. We were able to try on the Pitt uniform and see the locker room which was really nice. Following that, we heard a speech from Coach Narduzzi and then went to position meetings with our coaches. After talking to Coach Borbely, I have a lot of respect for him and like his coaching style of having an offensive line with a brotherhood which is something that truly stood out to me. Pittsburgh is a gorgeous city and the classrooms that Pitt has to offer are original with the impressive chapel building that I was able to see. Following our tour, we were able to go to a Pitt basketball game. The game atmosphere was insane, the city truly supports its athletics.”
