Recruiting Combine At Pitt

The Combine series debuted at the UPMC Sports Performance Complex Sunday, and there were more than 200 high school underclassmen in attendance.

Here is a photo array with many recruits that Pittsburgh has offered or interested in to this point. My wife, Denise, got up early Sunday to take these photos:

RB Derrick Burns from Wilmington, HS in New Wilmington, Pa. already has committed to Pitt.

Sto-Rox WR Andrew Carswell (McKees Rocks, Pa.) displays his soft hands.

At 6-4 and 200 pounds, Carswell is a big target.

Sto-Rox QB Paul Jones, a Penn State commit, is ready to fire downfield.
