Pitt high on McGruder's list

Safety Craig McGruder gives his top two interests - one of them being Pitt.

At 6-foot-2 and 205 pounds, safety Craig McGruder is coming off a strong summer in which he camped at Ohio State and Kent State. The talented defensive back, who carries a 2.8 GPA, ran a 4.53 at the Ohio State camp.

"I don't have any scholarship offer yet but I have talked to a lot of schools," he said. "My top five would be Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Ohio State, Marshall, and Indiana."

The standout safety talked about some of his favorites.

"I like the program at Syracuse," he said. "I like the coaches there too. I first talked to them in the spring and I think they're very interested. At Pittsburgh, I really like coach Walt Harris. He's done a nice job turning the program around. Syracuse and Pittsburgh are two of the schools I'll probably take visits to later in the year."
