Next Thursday, the Pitt football program will host 2021 offensive tackle Kevin Wigenton II prior to their game against North Carolina.
Wigenton (6’5″, 290) attends the Hun School in Princeton, New Jersey and this will be his second unofficial visit to Pitt this season. Wigenton, who holds a Power Five offer from Rutgers, has a big month’s worth of visits lined up: Pitt (November 14), Rutgers (November 16), Maryland (November 23) and Syracuse (November 30). He also is hearing and talking with coaches at Boston College, West Virginia and Virginia Tech.
Pittsburgh Sports Now talked with Wigenton this afternoon about making a return visit to Pittsburgh and what he hopes comes out of it.
“Our season ended last weekend and I’ve talked with Coach Salem almost every week, Wigenton told PSN. “I know he was trying to get up to my school this week. I visited there back on August 31 and I loved it and wanted to try and get back as soon as I could. We talked this week and set it up for me to come up again next Thursday.”
“I just want to see where I stand with them and hopefully I’ll hear some good news from them and I can come back again soon. I just really want to see Pitt again because it is so beautiful.”
Wigenton says he’ll hopefully hear some good news from them which means that he’s hoping that on this visit Pitt will extend him an offer.
“My coach has talked to them a lot about that,” said Wigenton. “I believe that an offer is coming soon but either way, I just want to get back because I love it there. The Pitt coaching staff has been real honest with me the whole time and I thank them for that. If an offer comes on Thursday that’s good but if it doesn’t, that’s no problem. I’m sure it’ll come at some point.”
Now that his junior season is completed, Wigenton tells me that the biggest area in which he improved this season was his pass blocking and that he also believes that he’s gotten physically stronger and faster.
“My goal at the beginning of the season was to not allow a sack this year and I’m happy that I didn’t allow one.”
