OL Prospect likes what he sees at Pitt

Kyle Mitchum is a big-time offensive lineman prospect from the Keystone State and he already has an early list of official offers to prove it. The 6-foot-5, 265-pound standout with 5.1 40-yard dash speed has been offered by Pitt along with Penn State, Iowa, and Maryland.<br><br> Where do the Panthers stand with the Erie (PA) native?

"I like Pitt but I'm open to all teams now," the second team all-state lineman said. "Last weekend I went to Pitt's Junior Day. They have a very nice campus and their brand new practice facilities were incredible."

Mitchum also got a chance to talk a lot with head coach Walt Harris and offensive line coach Freeman, and they both made quite an impression on him.

"They were both very nice to talk with," he said. "I talked with the position coach the most and he made me feel right at home."

Mitchum, whose strengths are his love for the game and his aggression on the field, knows what he's looking for in a school.

"I'm looking for someplace that has a good football atmosphere, good facilities and academics," he said. "Academics is one thing that I'll look deeply into."

This spring he will attend the Nike Camp at Penn State.
