"[Head coach Paul Chryst] was really excited," Green said. "I think they had a feeling I was [going to commit], but they were really excited."
As Greg mentioned in his initial write-up shortly after the commitment, Green is going to play wide receiver. He joins Zach Challingsworth as the second receiver for 2013 and the move from quarterback doesn't bother him one bit:
"It’s fine with me," he said. "I know it’s going to be a change, but it’s fine with me because I like playing offense."
Pitt just isn't in the market for another quarterback right now, with the pickup of Tra'Von Chapman, in my mind. Chapman will be a true freshman and Voytik, a redshirt freshman next year with Trey Anderson a junior and the senior transfer Tom Savage.
Lastly, it helped that he was in for the Virginia Tech game, which Pitt won. He spoke about that experience:
"It was a really good atmosphere," he said. "It felt like the whole school was out there supporting the team."
Seriously, how glad are you that he didn't come to the Youngstown State game?
On Tuesday, New Jersey athlete Reggie Green committed to Pitt via Twitter. Afterwards, he spoke about his commitment to the Star-Ledger. Green plays a variety of positions, but gave an indication where he thinks he might end up:
“They project me as an athlete on the offensive side of the ball,” Green said.
He also talked a little about liking the area and the coaches:
“The area is beautiful,” Green said. “The school, the campus, the city. The coaching staff was really great. The players I talked to were really nice, good people. It just felt like I place I felt at home at.”
“He’s a good guy,” Green said of Chryst. “He’s a good coach. Someone that’s good to be around and learn from.”
Will be interesting to see where he ends up. He's able to play safety as well as a few offensive positions. Sounds like offense for now, but that could change if there's a need on defense.
