PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Redshirt junior wide receiver Devin Street, undeterred by a sprained MCL that sidelined him early in training camp, will be ready for action when Pitt opens the 2012 season against Youngstown State at Heinz Field Saturday.

Street, who led the Panthers with 754 yards on 53 catches in 2011, was able to practice at full speed on the South Side Tuesday and told us he has no concern about the lower-body ailment, nor his ability to keep pace with new coach Paul Chryst’s new-look offense.

“It’s a complex offense, but at the same time, it’s a great offense,” he said. “Coach Chryst’s ideas and concepts are great for attacking the defense, and attacking certain types of coverages.

“I think the offense is in great shape. I think we have room to grow, and that’s what we’re trying to do this week.”

Street went on to discuss the role of Pitt’s receivers in the new offense, and how the Penguins of the FCS will prepare for them.

Kickoff is scheduled for Saturday at 6:00 P.M. on your flagship home of the Panthers, SportsRadio 93.7 The Fan.
