The open secret, about where Bethel Park offensive tackle, Mike Grimm will announce his verbal commitment
got a bit of a leak was revealed early. Quietly.
The Trib website is already posting an article by Kevin Gorman on Mike Grimm making his verbal to Pitt
(so we will see how long until it gets pulled).
In the meantime…
He is Pitt’s first of two WPIAL recruits and fifth overall from the Class of 2014.
“All the Pitt coaches made me feel comfortable,” Grimm said. “They respected me as a player and made sure everything was OK. They were grown-up about the situation and made me see that I could really grow as a person and as a football player from being there with them.”
A three-year starter for the Black Hawks, Grimm switched from left tackle to strong-side last season because Bethel Park’s quarterback, Levi Metheny, is left-handed. Grimm projects as a right tackle in college.
Grimm is excited about playing alongside former prep All-Americans Adam Bisnowaty of Fox Chapel and Dorian Johnson of Belle Vernon on Pitt’s offensive line in the future.
“It made me feel more comfortable, meeting those guys and talking to them at games this year,” Grimm said. “It made me feel like it was a good place to be because everybody is at the same caliber, and we can succeed the same way. We can make each other better.”
Being close to home was an obvious factor in his decision.
