Quick Q&A
Q: Have the coaches said anything about playing time?
A: They just said as soon as we get a grasp on the play book and show we are ready we will play, I'm getting to campus this summer and staying with Chris and Scott McKillop and HB Blades and busting my Butt working out to get ready 
Q: Pitt or Penn State-
A: I'm Pitt I've always hated Penn State 
Q: Are you glad the recruiting process is over?
A: I'm very excited but it's been over with me for awhile, I've always wanted too play for Pitt

Considered- Michigan, Notre Dame, Purdue, Penn State, and WVU **1st verbal of this class** "Big defensive back. He can cover large receivers and overpower them."-Grimm "Hits like a truck and is a very solid tackler."-Grimm Teammates of fellow Kiski Area signees Scott McKillop and 2003 signee Chris McKillop. OUTLOOK- Adam played QB and FS for Coach Grimm's Kiski Area Cavaliers. Adam is a real nice athlete and he is a ferocious hitter with outstanding cover skills. Could end up playing a significant role this season

Ranked #1 wrestler in the WPIAL and PIAA at 215 lbs. Focused right now on winning a state wrestling championship.

Q&A
Q: Are you glad the process is over?
A: "Very glad the whole thing is done, but most schools knew I was solid with Pitt so they didn't bother me."
Q: Are you coming to campus during the summer-
A: "Yes I'll be with my brother Chris preparing for camp."
Q: You are a very accomplished wrestler. Have you been approached to wrestle at Pitt?
A: "Actually no one has said anything. Right now I'm concentrating on nothing but football."
Q: What are your goals coming into the season at Pitt?
A: "I will do anything to make the team better. I want to play but I want the team to succeed first."
Q: Will you play or take a red shirt?
A: "As of right now Coach said I'm going to play, but if they want me to redshirt I will do whatever they need."
Q: What are you doing after wrestling-
A: "I will go into track. I run the 100 meter, 400 meter relay, shot, and discus

Outlook- I saw McKillop play and he's one of the top 3 LB's in the state with very good lateral speed. He will run down anyone from sideline to sideline, has good vision, nice separation when taking on a block, and play's the game faster than people think. Tough Western PA kid from a great family.

Peabody Coach:" Corey has the whole world in front of him, and he's going to get bigger and better."

Considered- WVU, Michigan, Ohio State, and Toledo.

Outlook- Corey was recruited as a LB but very well could develop into a very athletic DT in the future. He has an extreme amount of potential, but didn't get much publicity because he verbally committed so early and battled injuries his senior season at Peabody
