Is Gary Still Committed?

For the third time this fall Pittsburgh Panther fans have to endure seeing one of its verbal commitments taking official visits elsewhere. Ricky Gary has visited Minnesota and now has plans to visit Ohio State (1/6), how solid is his pledge to the Panthers?

Ricky Gary decided after receiving an offer from Ohio State that he should at least see what they have to offer. The 5-foot-9, 177 pound, three-star cornerback will take a January visit to Columbus.

"I'm just checking them out," Gary said. "I'm still committed to Pittsburgh and I don't see that changing."

What if the Buckeyes impress the Pahokee, Fla., standout, might he change his mind?

"That would have to be a very big what if."

Gary admits he did inform the Pittsburgh staff that he would be taking the visit.

"They were a little shaky about it, but I need to see what else is out there. They were pretty cool about it."

Gary took a trip to Minnesota and according to the Florida athlete; it did nothing to change his mind.

"It was good, but I don't like the city. That's just not my type of set."

Gary finished his senior season with 800 yards rushing and 14 touchdowns. On defense he recorded 63 tackles, three interceptions, 15 pass breakups, two fumble recoveries, and one forced fumble.
