But all that is beginning to change for Khaynin Mosley-Smith. Known as K.K., the 2010 defensive tackle prospect Woodland Hills High School, had a strong showing at the University of Pittsburgh prospects camp Friday and received a scholarship offer from the Panthers.
K.K. actually played tight end on offense for Woodland Hills, which has not sent a player to Pitt during head coach Dave Wannstedt's tenure since linebacker Greg Webster after a string of solid performers before that like cornerback Shawntae Spencer, fullback Lousake Polite, cornerback Tutu Ferguson, nose tackle Tyre Young and fullback Mark Yezovich.
His only confirmed offers are Pitt, Ohio and Toledo with interest from Indiana, Cincinnati, MInnesota, Purdue, West Virginia and Akron. But K.K. holds Pitt and WVU above the rest right now, especially since the Panthers have offered.
"I've talked to the Pitt coaches a lot and have been down there a couple times now,'' K.K. said. "It really just feels like home to me.''
K.K. is expected to be at the Michigan and West Virginia camps next week.
