DT Quinn Pitcock 6-4 285 4.65 Piqua, Ohio
Its not a misprint, Quinn Pitcock runs a 4.65 forty-yard dash. After watching film of Pitcock and talking with several experts (college football coaches), its easy to see why Pitcock is considered one of if not the best defensive tackle in the nation.
Pitcock is quick, he has a nose for the ball and he loves to hit. What I notice the most about Quinn is he stays low and although he's big, he's doesn't make himself a big target for offensive lineman.
One thing you should know is that Quinn Pitcock marches to the beat of his own drummer. He's taking recruiting in stride and there were even rumors floating around that he might not play college football.
"I've heard about the rumors," Pitcock said. "I also participate in track and there were rumors that I was only going to be doing track in college. It's not true. I don't watch a lot of college or pro football. So I guess you can you say I'm a little different."
How many scholarships does Pitcock have?
"My coach told me there are too many to count. I have 10 or 12 written offers and a lot of schools have called me coach and offered me a scholarship."
What are Pitcock's strengths?
"I'd have to say my leg power is what sets me apart from others. I'm strong and I get to the ball carrier and throw them to the ground."
Pitcock has 35 solo tackles and three sacks so far in 2001. He's been named all state in both track and football.
Does Pitcock have a favorite?
"No, I wouldn't say there's a favorite. I do have it narrowed down right now to Ohio State, Penn State, Notre Dame, Florida and Duke. I don't have any officials set up yet.
Pitcock carries a 3.85 GPA in the classroom and he scored 20 on his ACT.
