    He chose Pitt over Toledo, Temple and Maryland. Schools like Bama, PSU, Notre Dame, Michigan, Rutgers, even Connecticut an Cincinatti….are recruiting kids that are getting offers from all the big schools. What the hell is Toledo, Temple, and even Maryland? Two MAC’s and a has been. Pitt has got to step up their recruiting or they are gonna be relegated to seasons like this year and last year.
