Will the Panthers look to Milford again?

There are at least a couple of areas that probably still need to be addressed in the recruiting Class of 2008. One is the offensive line. Pitt already has verbal commitments from Lucas Nix (6' 6" 295) from Thomas Jefferson and Ryan Hurley (6' 5" 296) from Hopewell. Adding one or two more offensive lineman should be a priority.

In addition Pitt has a commitment from linebacker Manny Williams (6' 1" 205) from Clairton. Assistant coach Paul Rhoads would like to see them land at least one more linebacker.

Last year Pitt land freshman running back sensation LeSean McCoy from Milford Academy and wide receiver Aundre Wright who impressed camp observers this summer with his speed and ability to catch the ball.

We checked in with Milford head coach Bill Chaplick to see if he had any players that might fill Pitt's needs.
