Erie star takes in Panthers practice

The Pittsburgh Panthers weren't in pads Thursday, but that didn't stop Erie Strong vincent star Maurice Williams from checking out the action.

Erie Strong Vincent assistant coach Jeff Gibbens and standout athlete Maurice Williams made the two hour trek to Pittsburgh on Thursday for spring practice.

"It went well, he had the chance to talk to (Dave) Wannstedt and (Paul) Rhoades," Gibbens said. "He walked around all practice and took everything in. he got the chance to sit in on a wide receivers meeting with Aubrey Hill."

Pittsburgh seems to be taking the pole position in the race for Williams service's.

He feels comfortable with the coaches there and they have his major (sports medicine," Gibbens said. "I can't speak for Mo, but he likes Pitt a lot. he doesn't want to go too far from home."

Williams will head down to Morgantown, W.Va to check out the Mountaineers on Monday.
