The No. 71 ranked player in the Rivals150 Tyrell Biggs just returned from a visit to his leader. The 6-foot-7, 260-pound power forward from Don Bosco Prep in Ramsey, N.J., is not quite ready to end the recruiting process and would like to visit the three other schools on his list.
"I like Villanova, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, and Miami,” said Biggs. “I’d say that Pittsburgh is my leader right now, but I want to visit the other three schools before I reach a decision.”
Biggs noted the pleasant comfort level with the Pittsburgh program.
"The visit went well,” he said. “I clicked really well with the team and the coaching staff. They made me feel really comfortable and seem like great guys. I had a chance to see the campus and was very impressed. All in all it was a good visit."
Biggs’ comfort level with Pittsburgh bodes well for the Panthers’ program.
"I want to go to the school that I feel I will be the most comfortable at,” he said. “The relationship with the players and coaches will be a big factor in making my decision.”
Biggs plans to have a decision made by the early signing period.
On the court, he is focused on improving his defensive play.
"I want to improve a lot on my defense and my lateral quickness,” he said. “I’ve been working hard at becoming a good defender.”
