Pittman was happy to finally get back on the field as he and his teammates moved forward in the playoffs. "I was a little cautious on how my leg would hold up and how I would do." Pittman feels he'll be fine once he gets more reps. " Next week, I feel that I will play even better when we play North Cobb."

Jamiyus is taking visits but is still committed to Ole Miss. "They want me to grey shirt and that is something I'd rather not do. I'll have to see what happens from here until signing day."

Georgia Tech, Central Florida, and Kentucky are three schools that Pittman is still considering. "All three have offered me and that is something that makes this situation much better." Pittman feels that Central Florida is showing the most interest right now.

Before signing day, Jamiyus plans to visit all three of those schools. "I want to check them out and see how I fit." Jamiyus is also looking to see how they feel about his leg injury. "Knowing that a school will want me with my injury and stand behind me to help me get it stronger will be important." Jamiyus wants to have the chance to start school with the other members of the 2014 class. "The more I know about that the better."

Central Florida is the lone school to get a visit from Pittman thus far. "I went to Central Florida this past weekend and had a good time. I only watched the football game and was glad to see them win but I didn't get to see everything there."

Jamiyus will be calling the coaches at Georgia Tech to talk to them about the best time for him to come up for a visit. "The Tech-Georgia game would be a good time to see them and get up there to talk to the coaches."

Miami, North Carolina State, Michigan State, and Arkansas are other schools showing Jamiyus interest.
