Pitt commit having second thoughts

Pitt commit William Parks has yet to hear from the Pitt staff. Read on for his thoughts of where he stands with Pittsburgh, how hard he is looking at Arizona, and more.

Germantown High (Philadelphia) cornerback William Parks is still committed to Pittsburgh, but admits that his commitment may be on its last legs since he has not heard from any of the coaches at Pitt.

"It's not going too well," Parks said of his commitment. "The coach has not called me yet. It has been two weeks and he just has not gotten in contact yet. There are a couple of other guys that have not been called yet either."

As of now, Parks says that he is planning on taking visits to other schools. He will likely give Pitt some more time, but says he has already made the effort.

"I am probably going to take visits this month," Park said. "I have told people I am still committed to Pitt and I am still waiting, but it has been two weeks.

"I talk to Chris LaSala earlier in the week and he said he was giving the coach my number, but I still have not heard from him yet. I am doing what anybody else would do, which is start to look around because I don't know where I stand at with this coach."

One school that Parks does know where he stands at is Arizona, as the cornerback has been in consistent contact with Tony Gibson.

"I talk with Gibson and we have a good relationship," Parks said. "We just talk on a pretty regular basis about what is going on and stuff like that."

Parks says that Gibson is respectful of the fact that Parks is still committed to Pitt, but says that Gibson has extended an invitation to take an official visit.

"Gibson tells me he likes it over there and I should try to schedule an official visit," Parks said. "He knows I am committed to Pitt, but he tells me I might want to come out there and take a look. It is a school I am definitely interested in."

Parks still likes Pitt, which is why he will give it until later in the week to give him a call and discuss his recruitment.

"The coaches at Pitt were great and the atmosphere of the school is different from where I am at and there are good people out there," he said. "I will probably give them until the end of the week, but I am definitely looking at other schools like Arizona, Maryland and Rutgers."
