High Octane Recruiting Weekend

Filed under: Uncategorized — The Incline Blog Staff @ 9:51 pm

It’s safe to say we’ve never had over 150 comments on one article over at The Incline (shameless plug), let alone that many in less than 48 hours. Quite impressive. Nothing to see here Nitters, move along to your true rivals’ (OSU, MSU) blogs. Ok,  I’m done mentioning PSU. This post is all about Pitt.

Over the weekend, Coach Graham’s staff received 3 more commitments. Of course, if you read the message boards, you’ll find out that Graham is a great college coach, but a terrible recruiter. These posters know this before one kick of the ball in the 2011 season. Let’s just give Graham and his staff some time to coach the players, get into homes and meet parents, and most importantly, coach a football game for the Panthers before we jump to conclusions. Welcome to Oakland:

  • Trenton Coles, WR, Clairton HS
  • William Parks, DB, Germantown, PA
  • Brandyn Cook, OL, St. Xavier (Cincinnati, OH)

Among them, some nice offers, some okay ones, some questionable. Only time will tell. Give Graham a chance and let’s see what happens before being negative.  I don’t follow the recruiting as closely as I used to because I’ve seen so many highly rated guys bust and lesser known players flourish under certain coaches and systems. If you know these kids and want to discuss the matter of “stars”, have at in the comments, hopefully you’ll be Nitter-free.

Later this week I’ll be doing a little piece on the attitude and mindset of Pitt fans, and what I’d like to see change. It should be a fun read. Hail to Pitt!
