Despite the fact that in-person college football recruiting is on hold, a junior lineman has scheduled a visit to Pitt.
Class of 2021 three-star offensive tackle Kevin Wigenton II told Pittsburgh Sports Now that he’s scheduled an official to visit the weekend of June 19-21.
This visit follows the scholarship offer that Wigenton received from Tim Salem and Pitt back on March 9.
Following his decision, PSN caught up with Wigenton to find out what went into the decision and a possible future at Pitt.
“I’ve been in contact with Coach Salem since sophomore year and I’ve built a great relationship with him,” said Wigenton. “I’ve also talked to [offensive line coach Dave Borbely] a bunch and I’m real excited to go and visit Pitt again. I’m really excited to see everything Pitt has to offer.
”Coach Borbs called and told me they wanted me to come take an official in June. I talked it over for a few days with my parents and we decided to take an official.”
Wigenton said that the communication between him and Pitt has increased since receiving the offer and he’s feeling like a priority recruit for the Panthers.
“I talk to Coach Salem everyday now and pretty much the same with Coach Borbely. Coach Narduzzi texted me yesterday so they’ve shown me a lot of interest,” said Wigenton. “I get mail and edits from them everyday and they have told me they not only want me but need me as they see me fitting in perfectly in their offensive line. They see me able to play both guard and tackle.”
In terms of his official visit, what would Wigenton specifically would he be focusing on or looking to find out about?
“I definitely want to see the school and facilities as a whole,” he said. “I want to see the academics Pitt has to offer and also how they can help me after football. I want to learn about their football alumni networking and also many other things.
As if now, this is Wigenton’s only planned official visit although he plans on taking ones to both Vanderbilt and Indiana.
“I’ve been in contact with Ole Miss, Kentucky, California, USC, UCLA and Maryland,” he said. “I don’t have a Top 5 or anything like that but Pitt is definitely up there.”
