Ohio CB eager for Panther offer

One of the better cover corners in Ohio attended Pittsburgh's Junior Day on Saturday and loved what he saw.

Bruce Hampton, from Cleveland Heights (OH) HS says of the experience, "The coaching staff did a great job and Coach (Walt) Harris is always impressive, and would be great to play for. I look forward to coming to the summer camp and showing why I should be a Pitt Panther."

Hampton's father was also very impressed with the coaching staff, especially Coach Harris.

"The coaches are all so nice there," says Hampton's father. "Especially Harris. They make you feel really wanted there."

Mr. Hampton also sees two other things in Pitt's favorite. "There was the BCS question last year. But this year they don't have that problem anymore."

The other thing in Pitt's favor is playing time. "They have so many excellent cornerbacks there," says Mr. Hampton, and mentions recent Buckeye recruits Ted Ginn and Donte Whitner, and 2005 verbal Jamario O'Neal. "He will have a chance to play a lot sooner at Pittsburgh."

But Hampton has always make it clear that Ohio State is the place where Ohio kids often go to play, and has indicated that he would accept an offer from them if given the chance.
