DC Linebacker Visits Pitt Game

Michael Boderick, who came in with teammate Lamont Baldwin, has a few schools of interest, and might be flying under the radar right now.

Michael Boderick is a 6-0, 230-pound linebacker for Washington (DC) Archbishop Carroll. Coming off an eight-tackle performance on Friday night, Boderick got in the car with his friend Baldwin, and came up for Pitt's opener with New Hampshire.

"I can't really tell, but they definitely said they're interested," Boderick said of Pitt. "I got to meet the coaches. They showed me around the locker room too. Rutgers, I'm hearing from them. I'm going to get in contact with them."

Aside from Pitt and Rutgers, Boderick's interest has come from mostly I-AA schools such as Hampton, Old Dominion, Stony Brook and Monmouth.

He might not be as big of a Pitt target has his teammate Baldwin, who's in the 2012 recruiting class, but he did say this about his trip to Pittsburgh.

"The one thing I liked about Pitt, was that I love the stadium," Boderick said. "I love the fans, they have some real good fans. They were talking to me in the stands, telling me I would look good in a Pitt uniform."

As far as any Pitt players that impressed him during the game?

"Players-wise, that defensive end, number 97, Jabaal (Sheard)," Boderick said. "I was looking at him. He was getting to the quarterback. I was real excited about that, seeing stuff like that."
