Pitt is expected to host a number of juniors on campus on Saturday, as the No.4 ranked basketball team closes out its regular season against Villanova. One prospect who won't be there is Drew Harris. Harris was offered by the Panthers three weeks ago, had a pretty good reason why.
"(Receivers) coach (Mike) Norvell said he'd rather have me up for a personal day for spring practice, or something like that," Harris said.
"The only (Pitt assistant) I currently know is coach Norvell," Harris added. "We have a pretty good relationship. I like how he basically keeps it short, and keeps on it 100 percent. They're looking at me, and they're high on my priority list.
"Outside of that, I haven't talked to any of the other (Pitt) coaches. (Norvell) isn't one of those coaches that sugarcoats things, and that's what I like."
In addition to getting to Pitt for a spring practice, he also said he will head to Penn State in late March to watch one of their spring practices as well.
As a junior in 2010, the four-star prospect rushed 227 times for 1,960 yards and 28 touchdowns. He earned first-team all-league, all-conference and all-state honors. He was selected Ches-Mont League Player of the Year.
