Garrett Enjoys Pittsburgh Visit

Daingerfield (TX) receiver Keyarris Garrett gives an update on his official visit to Pitt this weekend.

One of the concerns Keyarris Garrett had about Pittsburgh was the weather, much different from his hometown of Daingerfield, Texas. Though the temperature reached as low as five degrees on Friday night, the first night of Garrett's visit, he said the weather didn't bother him too much.

"It wasn't as bad as everyone was telling me," Garrett said. "It was okay."

When he came in Friday, Garrett got to see Pitt's facilities, with a little help from his host, redshirt freshman safety Jason Hendricks.

"Friday, we went to (Heinz Field)," Garrett said. "We went to went to go see the football field. We saw the jerseys. Saturday was the big day. We got the tour of the campus. Sunday, we got one more quick look around."

Garrett added Friday was probably his favorite day.

"Probably the best part was seeing the facilities and the stadium," Garrett said. "That was the best part of it."

Since he was recruited by Todd Graham and his staff at Tulsa, Garrett said that relationship has stayed the same. In fact, that type of continuity has brought him to be interested in Pitt. It's because of that relationship, that he is interested in the Panthers. The next step, however is to decide between what he's gearing more for--the connection he already has with Graham staff, or the connection he feels with Tulsa of itself. That is where his next visit will be. He said he will decide after that visit.

"(The Tulsa coaches) came to my house Wednesday," Garrett said. "They told me they already had three receivers. I just know I want to go somewhere I can make an immediate impact. Right now, it's tied between (Pitt) and Tulsa.

"Friday, after my (basketball) game, I'm going to go visit Tulsa. I'll have my decision by Sunday."

He did add overall, his first trip to Pittsburgh was an overall success.

"I was impressed with how big everything was, that's really what I loved," Garrett said. "I hadn't really seen anything (at Pitt) before. I enjoyed it the whole time I was there. I loved every minute of it."
