That still might happen, but it's not guaranteed with Paul Jones already committed to Penn State, even though he's still looking at other schools as well, while Andrew Carswell has no offer from the Nittany Lions.
"Things have been going pretty good, actually, with recruiting,'' Carswell said. "And I've gotten a lot more exposure and some new offers. So, I'm real happy with the way things have been going for me, and I'm only a junior. ... I'd like to make a decision right before the season or maybe in the middle of it.
"I don't have an offer from Penn State, but if I do they'd be a consideration. To play on the same college team as my high school quarterback, that would be fine with me. But we'll see. Like I've said, I'm still keeping my options open. I'm trying to keep my mind open right now about all the colleges.''
The University of Pittsburgh, Carswell's hometown team, is among the schools that have offered the 6-foot-4, 200-pound wideout. Boston College, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina State and Wisconsin also have offered Carswell.
"Coach (Greg) Gattuso has been talking to me from Pitt, and I'm still interested in them,'' Carswell said. "There's a lot to like about Pitt to like. I like the coaches, the team is good, the facilities and academics, everything is good.
"And they're close to home, so my family wouldn't mind if I picked Pitt. That's important to me, but we'll see. I have some time to make a decision, and I'm going to take it. Like I said before, I want to decide before my senior season, but it might not happen. So, we'll see what happens from now until then.''
Carswell has visited Pitt on several occasions this spring alone, and he likely will be at the Panthers' prospects camp and also the passing camp.
