Ojomo sets Pitt visit

University of Pittsburgh Head Football Coach Dave Wannstedt has been adamant about increasing the Panthers overall team speed. A lightning fast defensive end from Hialeah, FL has set an official visit with the Panthers. Pitt appears to be a major player for his services.

"I have set two official visits. I visit North Carolina State on September 22nd and I visit Pittsburgh on October 21st," stated blue-chip defensive end Adewale Ojomo (6-foot-3 ½ inches, 218 pounds) from Hialeah Senior High School in Hialeah, FL. "Miami (FL), Georgia, Ole Miss and Auburn are still in the mix as well."

Scout.com rates Ojomo a "four-star" defensive end. He's generally considered one of the top "speed rushers" in the state of Florida. Adewale is capable of running the forty-yard dash in 4.6 seconds.

When asked what would factor into his final decision, he stated, "I want to visit and go with my gut. I want to feel comfortable with coaches and players."

"I'm not worried about playing time. I need to be realistic. Most good programs have solid defensive ends. If I have to red shirt for a year, that's fine with me. If I went to a program that needed me to step in and play, something would be wrong. I assume they wouldn't be that good."

Adewale finished his junior season with 40 tackles and 7 sacks. He has been a three-year starter for Hialeah High School. Pitt's wide receiver's coach Aubrey Hill has been his primary contact.

"I have never been to Pittsburgh. I look forward to visiting and seeing what their program is all about."
