Rumors, hearsay and more rumors sprung up this week linking the Harrisburg, PA running back with an impending decision. Recruits were reporting that Poteat was headed to Pitt, and perhaps taking Terrell Chestnut with him. Not so, says Poteat.
"I don't know where those rumors came from," Poteat told ScarletReport.com. "That never happened – that never was close to happening."
Poteat clarified statements made earlier this week, saying that while he could wake up one morning and be ready with a decision - he isn't at that point yet. He cautions that it could be anytime, but he just wants to wait for his "gut to tell" him what to do.
"Kind of like what Lebron (James) said that he just woke up and knew," Poteat said. "I want that for me, to just wake up and know."
Addressing the issue of playing with Chestnut, whom he says he wants to be roommates with in college, Poteat is non-committal. He says that obviously there is a connection between the two and that they "talk about playing together all the time." But, they both realize that they may commit to different programs and are prepared to play apart.
"Obviously, we want to play together, we want to play our college ball together," Poteat said. "But we both realize this is a business."
