"Ohio State, Penn State, Notre Dame, Wisconsin, and Duke are some of the schools that have offered me," said Pitcock. "I have set up visits to Ohio State (11-30), Notre Dame (12-7), Penn State (1-11), Duke (1-18) and Florida (1-25). Ohio State is my leader but that is what I have seen the most so far. They are the home state team and I have been there. I like the tradition at Notre Dame and Penn State. At Duke, it is about their academics. I thought about going to a warm weather schools and I like Florida. Plus, I like the way they play defense. I want to take my visits and make a decision on what feels right."
Pitcock, 6-4 and 285 pounds, has 12 sacks on the season, even though he considers himself a better run stuffer.
"I play the run better. I am the type of player that plays until the whistle blows. I never quit and my motor never stops."
Pitcock has a 3.85 grade point average and he has already scored a 20 ACT. He bench presses 335, squats 600 and power cleans 320.
