Open Season on Pitt's Recruits

Since Tuesday nights press conference of Coach Wannstedt and his departure as the Head football coach, Pitt's class of 2011 recruits are now open to sign anywhere they feel more comfortable. National signing day is not until February, so they have always had the door open to verbal commit elsewhere. But now that Pitt has a vacancy at the head coaching position, recruits aren't sure what to do yet. Some of the 18 recruits have been getting alot of phone calls from South Carolina, Texas Tech, Rutgers, Penn State and Michigan amongst others. Recruits are not saying they are closing the door on coming to Pittsburgh but the chances of them coming are now smaller. Pitt had an upcoming top 25 recruiting class for 2011 but the chances of them dropping out of the top 25 are now pretty good. Stay tuned on Recruits staying or leaving here on Pittmix

  1. It is going to be really hard to keep these guys for sure now, like it or not Wannstedt was a coach you come play for. Besides this is a tough situation for any team to go through. The real problem is you expect to see progress from the new head coach and he is likely to have a dud of a first recruiting class because of this. It is to bad we couldn't have designated someone that was clearly going to be on the new staff to work the phones hard.
