Pitts steady with six offers

Woodland Hills cornerback/athlete Lafayette Pitts remains open on which position he'll play in college, just as he remains open to the six schools that have offered him.

"I have offers from Kent State, Buffalo, Maryland, Iowa, Pitt and West Virginia," Pitts said. "The last one I got was from Buffalo."

Pitts also added that Purdue and Illinois seem close to offering, while Michigan State has come by to meet with his coaches as well. His former teammate Mike Lee was a 2010 signee with Purdue, and it's possible he could take an unofficial visit to both Purdue and Illinois next month.

Pitts was down at Pittsburgh, the hometown school, in the last week, just as a number of local and in-state prospects have. This time, he was there for an academic presentation. It's too tough for Pitts to say if Pitt is a favorite, but so far, he likes what he sees.

"I was down there a week ago, on a tour, and it was real good," Pitts said. "There was a lot of stuff I didn't know."

Pitt is a school he keeps in touch with regularly, through e-mail.

"I stay in touch with Pitt," Pitts added. "I'm not sure at the moment (if he'll take another unofficial visit this summer), but I know I'm going to a couple passing camps. We're going to a team camp down at Maryland, and we'll be going to a Pitt passing camp that same weekend."

Pitts, who says he is listed at 6-0, 185 right now, is expected to start at both running back and cornerback for the Woodland Hills this season, as the Wolverines look to defend their WPIAL championship from 2009. Pitts had a total of six returns (kickoff and punt) for touchdowns last season. He added four rushing touchdowns, despite backing up Syracuse signee Dom Timbers. He also had one touchdown reception. On defense, he finished with 25 tackles, seven pass breakups and two interceptions.
