Welcome new recruit Vernon Botts!!!

Welcome new recruit Vernon Botts

Vernon is a 6-4 225 lb 2-way End who runs a 4.6 40.  He is from Rancocas Valley High School in Mount Holly, NJ.  Vernon has an elongated frame with long arms and big hands, which makes him a perfect fit to play End. He will most likely play Defensive End at Pitt, but they will look at him on both sides of the ball before they decide.  He has a big, lean frame, which makes him very similar to Bryan Knight when he arrived at Pitt. Remember Bryan was only 6-2 205 lb's when he arrived at Pitt and he was able to add weight and strength, plus also improve his speed, and he ended up being a standout Defensive End at Pitt and who will be drafted in the upcoming NFL draft!  Vernon selected the Panthers over offers from East Carolina, Rutgers and Kent State.
