"How old where you when you were coaching our son? About 15? Billy's 46," Walter Pitchford, Sr., told Scout.com. Garrett coached Walter, Jr.'s brother at Hales Franciscan where he was an assistant early in his career. He'll help coach the next Pitchford next fall at DePaul.
Walter Pitchford, Jr., committed to Jerry Wainright's Blue Demons Monday night. He'll visit the school officially for Midnight Madness.
DePaul conducted a home visit with Pitchford on Sunday. "It was a little inspirational but more or less Walt listened to the head coach."
Pitchford is originally from Chicago. His father said he relished the chance to help the Blue Demons rebuild with local talent. "Basically, the opportunity to get in a program where he can help rebuild it back to where it was before if they continue to do the recruiting that they're starting to do."
