Two Possible Recruits

Michigan would certainly love to get a visit from All-American New Orleans defensive end Kirston Pittman. Concord De LA Salle 'speed back' Maurice Drew is taking a 'wait and see' approach toward his recrutiing. Both talked to us about their current situations.

All-American outside linebacker/defensive end Kirston Pittman (6-4, 235 lbs., 4.5 in the 40) from Reserve, Louisiana, East St. John High (just west of New Orleans) is The Insiders' #56 prospect.
