Antonio Reddic impressive at Pitt camp

University of Pittsburgh Head Football Coach Dave Wannstedt and his staff are in the process of assembling a standout secondary. One of the top cornerback prospects in Western Pennsylvania happens to be Aliquippa High School standout Antonio Reddic. The PantherDigest.com spoke with Reddic about his impressive performance at Pitt's recent summer camp.

"I thought I performed really well at Pitt's camp. I enjoyed it there," stated Antonio Reddic (6-foot-1 inches, 180 pounds). "I was there Friday and Saturday. My camp was cut short because of a high ankle sprain. I was a little frustrated."

Reddic is capable of running a 4.5 forty-yard dash. He is known for his aggressive coverage skills. He has yet to receive a scholarship offer but he lists Pitt, Michigan, Penn State and West Virginia as his favorite schools.

"Coach (Paul) Rhodes kept a close eye one me when I was there. He told me my defense looked really good. I felt great going through the drills. Coach Rhodes gave me a few tips to help me improve."

When asked about his strengths, he stated "I have great size for a cornerback and I'm quick. I have run a 4.4 forty-yard dash in the past. I can cover wide receivers but I have the size you need against the run. I'm not scared to use my size and hit people. I'm a hard hitter."

The Panthers are recruiting Reddic's teammate Bradon Lindsay. Lindsay is considered one of the top linebacker prospects in Western Pennsylvania. When asked if the players were considered a "package deal", he stated, "Brandon and I would like to play together but we're going to have to make separate decisions."

"(Panther linebacker) Tommie Campbell is on me all the time to come to Pitt. Maybe it will workout in the future. Pitt has a strong tradition with Aliquippa High School players."
