"My feelings are still very strong for Pitt," Corson said. "The way they have played doesn't change my mind about my commitment."
Wannstedt recruited Corson as a defensive tackle, but he thinks he'll eventually end up on the offensive front. Ironically, that could reunite him with his former teammate Stephens-Howling.
"Oh yeah, we talk about that," he said. "It would be really nice to be blocking for him again. It's really crazy knowing I blocked for him in high school, then you see him on T.V. running back a kickoff against Ohio. Then against Nebraska he had a lot of yards rushing."
Corson is in his second season in the Johnstown program after transferring from Conemaugh Valley. He is fairly confident that if he had not made the move he may not have the opportunity to play major college football.
"No, I don't think I would have been noticed at Conemaugh Valley," he said.
Admittedly, the scholarship to Pittsburgh has been bittersweet for Corson.
"It's going pretty good, we only have eight seniors,' he said. "We have a lot of young guys getting used to playing varsity football."
