Jevonte Pitts was invited down to Pitt for an official visit this past weekend. After the visit, and with just a few days before signing day, Pitts had some good news to report on.
"Pitt just offered," Pitts told Panther Digest on Sunday. "We were talking about (whether to commit), but they just offered."
In other words, he just needs some time to think about making a commitment. Former teammate Khaynin Mosley-Smith served as his host this past weekend, as Pitts got to take a closer look at the campus. His cousin, Lafayette Pitts, was also on the visit. He didn't go into much detail but he did feel Lafayette had a good time on the visit as well.
"Yeah, we were down there with (Lafayette)," Pitts said. "We had a good time. It's easier to relate with a guy like (Mosley-Smith). I knew a lot of people that were there, though. You feel like you're ready to click."
Among some of the stops on his visit were the Cathedral of Learning and Heinz Field. Pitts reminded us that Heinz Field wasn't exactly a new place for him.
"I've been down there a couple times, we played a couple games there, the (2009 WPIAL) championship too," Pitts said. "I've been down there to hang out at the(Pitt) games, too. I've been down there numerous times. The Cathedral of Learning, we got to do that."
Outside of the spots on campus, Pitts also got to meet with the coaching staff a little more.
"The coaches were pretty cool," Pitts added. "I like the coaches. Coach (Tony) Gibson was cool. I like all the other coaches too, but I spent the most time with Coach Gibson."
Pitts, as well as the rest of the Woodland Hills student-athletes will officially sign their letters of intent on Wednesday morning at the school.
