Calhoun Continues To Mull Options

Middletown, New Jersey tight end has visited Pitt and Rutgers. With all the turmoil surrounding Pitt's coaching search, would he still consider the Panthers?

Shilique Calhoun has taken an official visit to Rutgers, and he also took one to Pitt for the regular season home finale against West Virginia.

Despite Pitt getting blown out 35-10, he said a loss like that couldn't hurt Pitt's chances.

"Honestly, I thought the defense played very well," Calhoun told Panther Digest following the visit. "They had a couple mishaps on offense that led to their demise. I thought the defense played very well; that would be my observation."

Pitt going through now two coaching searches, that's a little tougher to overcome. Still, he seems to have a positive relationship with Pitt, as a few of the administrators in the football office have reached out to recruits like Calhoun, to get them to at least save room for an in-home visit; but mainly just keeping communication open.

"I talked to Matt (Dudek)," Calhoun said. "That was good. He was telling me how the situation was going on there, and he just wanted to let me know where things were."

Calhoun is unsure if Pitt is still in the mix, or even when and where he will make a college decision. He does know that he will use the next four weeks between now and Letter of Intent Day to figure that out.

"I'm not even sure (about Pitt)," Calhoun said. "I'm still a little confused by the whole situation. We'll see, though."
