Wake Forest Monitors Pitts

In a class thin at the point guard position, Damier Pitts is being recognized as one of the better lead men on the east coast -- and the 5-foot-10, 160-pound junior is getting evaluated by a handful of high-major programs.

Virginia Tech, Clemson, Wake Forest, West Virginia, Georgia, Kentucky and Cincinnati have all been in to see the Charlotte (NC) Christian standout, which averages 19.5 points and 3.7 assists a game.

"It's going real good," Damier Pitts said about his recruitment. "There are a lot of schools looking at me lately, a lot of schools from the ACC."

So who's showing serious interest in the elusive Charlotte native? Well, Clemson, Virginia Tech and East Carolina have offered him scholarships and the Demon Deacons have been in to see him a handful of times. "[Wake Forest] is showing a whole lot of interest," he noted.

But Wake Forest isn't at the top of his list. He's already taken a trip to Blacksburg, Virginia, and he's been impressed with everything that the Hokies have to offer.

"Virginia Tech, they are at the top," Pitts said. "I just like the pace that they play at. The coaches are real cool and I like how they play and they focus more on the guards."

Although he's starting to develop a list of top schools, Pitts has yet to devote his full attention to the recruiting process.

"I'm not really focused right now on my recruiting. I'm focused on the season. I'll focus more on that next season."

While Pitts' squad just lost a rivalry game against Victory Christian their ranked 5th in the state of North Carolina and have a record of 19-4.

"Overall I think I've been playing pretty good," Pitts said. "I've been getting my teammates involved and we are just having fun."

A quick and shifty point guard, Pitts knows how to lead a team, but at the same time is capable of getting his own shot and knocking it down. He is great in the open court and has become a dead eye shooter.

Pitts and Charlotte Christian only have two remaining game and they are both against 2009 standout David Chadwick and his Charlotte (NC) Latin team.
