Of course, if Mack Brown had his way, all three would suit up for the Burnt Orange, but he'd likely satisfy his thirst for some much-needed defensive end depth by landing any combination netting him two of the three. To get two, though, you have to start by getting one, hence the importance of Pittman's mid-week visit to Austin this past week.
With an official visit to the Big House (Dec. 13) already in the bag, the trip to Austin was his second and he gave IT his thoughts about both.
"Oh, it was great," Pittman said responding to the question of how his trip to the University of Michigan went. "The campus was great, the players were great... great coaches... great atmosphere. All-around, just a good visit."
About that trip to Texas...
"Awesome," said Pittman as he paused afterwards, perhaps to symbolize how delighted he was for making the trip to The University. And with an attempt to equal the level of excitement of his initial one-word description he followed by saying, "I loved it!"
A comparison is certainly in order as IT threw the 1-10 scale rating system out for the purpose of distinguishing the difference between the two schools to see who officially has the leg up. Reading between the lines is not always that easy.
"Michigan was a 10," said TheInsiders.com's 56th-rated overall prospect in the US."
Okay, so they're now, both even.
"Texas?" asked Pittman. "10-plus."
No further questions.
Pittman's slated to take his three remaining officials to FSU (Jan. 10), Miami (Jan. 24) and LSU (Jan. 31). He said he fully intends to do just that.
