Visit closes the gap for Green

Most recruits want to see everything around a program when they take an official. Desimon Green is already familiar with everything about Pittsburgh. He wanted time with the new staff while on his official.

Clairton (Pa.) three-star tight end Desimon Green wasn't concerned about the facilities or anything else on his official visit to Pittsburgh. Green's intent was to use his visit to spend more time with the new Panthers coaching staff.

"My host was Tyrone Ezell," Green said. "I have already seen everything at Pitt. Honestly, there was nothing new that anyone could show me, since I have been there so many times before.

"I went down there, so I could spend more time getting to know the new coaching staff," continued Green. "I really like those guys. I was with head coach (Todd) Graham a lot. You can tell he really cares and wants what is best for his players. He is a lot like Coach Wannstedt, he seems like a players coach."

Heading into the official visit at Pittsburgh, it was a three team race between Texas Tech, Michigan State and Pittsburgh. Green told us that he has eliminated one team.

"Pittsburgh definitely closed the gap," stated Green. "I am just trying to sort everything out, but I am really feeling more comfortable about Pittsburgh. It is down to Pittsburgh and Texas Tech. Michigan State says they want me, but they have been taking too many tight ends and defensive ends, so I'm just looking at two now.

"I know Pittsburgh wants me bad," Green said. "They didn't have to even say that, because I can tell just from being around them."

Green said he will either decide right after his official next weekend or he may wait until signing day.
