  • As we announced on Saturday Perry's Cameron Holland and Upper Perkiomen's John Fieger earned scholarship offers after Saturday's morning session. Upper Perkiomen head coach Keith Leamer told us that Fieger is the first D-I scholarship offer in football since the 1960's from his school.
  • Pat Bostick was like a totally different person from all the other times I had seen him. Bostick had a smile that was from ear-to-ear, he said he was so happy that it was all over and he loves the choice he made. Bostick was throwing the ball all over the indoor facility by himself, I found it odd, so of course I asked why? "I do this at home, I'll throw at trees and other things, I feel like it really improves my accuracy," Bostick said.
  • Gino Gradkowski received a lot of attention as we figured he would. Bostick made sure he ate lunch with Gradkowski as well, so I'm guessing Pat was doing some recruiting. Gradkowski looked tremendous, probably the best I have seen from him.
  • Chris Jacobson caught the eye of every high school coach who was watching, they could not believe how good he was. The Pitt coaches kept making sure "Lumpy" didn't get to into it and hurt anyone. It sounds funny, but Jacobson was tossing people like rag dolls.
  • Mentor, Ohio DE Brady DeMell looked very good, he really gets after it.
  • Tristan Roberts from Pennridge looked very good. He ran a 4.5 in the forty yard dash. On a side note, Roberts is the nephew of former Pitt Panther Tim Lewis.
  • Woodland Hills looks to have a nice stable of athletes this season, they had four-six kids we watched who all ran sub 4-6 forties.
  • Northwest DE Justin Young who holds ten offers including Virginia, Virginia Tech, Syracuse, Marshall and Temple was in attendance. Young gets after it. he is very explosive off the snap and gets a great up field push.
  • Buchtel's Ted Jones will pass anyone's look test.
  • Ohio OL Jeff Spikes is an imposing 6-7/305 pounds. Spikes told us he missed last season with an injury, but he could make a huge splash this season.
  • Cypress Bay a four-year old school in Florida has a handful of athletes at Pitt. They will be participating in Sunday's camp.
  • Among the players expected in on Sunday are Northeast Catholic's Daryl Robinson, Bo Williams and Pennsbury's C.J. Marck.
