Pittman Wants to Learn More

Junior defensive end Se'Von Pittman has heard from Notre Dame and wants to know more about the Irish football program.

One of the top defensive ends in the Class of 2012 in Ohio is 6-foot-4, 225-pound, Canton (Ohio) McKinley's Se'Von Pittman. Recently, Notre Dame stopped into his school to check up on him and wet his interest in the Irish program.

"Yes sir… Coach Warinner stopped by the school to see my coach. He said Notre Dame is very interested in my, but we have not gone into too much detail about an offer. I really do not know much about Notre Dame but want to know more. They want me to visit them to learn more about the program."

With offers from Alabama and West Virginia already in hand and Ohio State possibly coming soon, Pittman knows things might get a little crazy.

"I was able to watch my teammate Steve Miller this past year and that has helped me prepare in so many ways. Getting ready for the next level and watching all the preparation Steve had to do, really helped me."

Looking to possible study something in sports medicine, Pittman knows there are many days ahead to think about where he might end up.

"I have not really thought much about it. I will sit down with my mother at some point and look at each program one-step at a time. I feel like I will list my Top Five schools I want to visit, and then talk with my mother and go from there.

This past season ended excessively soon for Pittman and McKinley. Looking forward, he knows he and his teammates have learned from it.

"We were all very disappointed in how our season ended. We know football is a learning process and we now know what it takes to win next time."

With attention starting to come his way, Se'Von knows not to take too much from it.

"I do not know how to really explain the attention. People are always coming up and wanting to talk or congratulate me. But I'm just looking to keep my head on straight and prepare for my senior season."

Irish Eyes will continue to update Notre Dame's interest in Se'Von Pittman in the coming weeks and months.
