Pitt's Ryan Winslow Comments On Football Verbal

As Greg mentioned earlier this week, Pitt's football camp paid off again with the pickup of punter Ryan Winslow this week.

Winslow talked a bit about his experience afterwards.

It didn't take him all that long to get an offer from Pitt, apparently:

Ryan Winslow, soon to enter his senior year at La Salle, worked out at Pittsburgh on Saturday afternoon. Immediately after, Panthers head coach Paul Chryst offered a scholarship.

"After eight warm-up punts, I punted 20 times," Winslow said. "It wasn't my best performance, but I thought I did pretty well. It was solid."

I'm not going to try to break down a punting recruit, because let's be honest - how many people can even speak intelligently to it? But the fact that he was invited to camps at Ohio State and Penn State, among a few others, is impressive. None of those visits yielded an offer, but they could have farther down the road. Maybe fearing that a little, Pitt jumped early and snatched him up.

Winslow sounded relieved to catch on with Pitt:

"I was starting to question myself a little bit," the 18-year-old said. "I was wondering if I was good enough to play at the Division I level. When Pitt offered, it was like a dream come true."

Hard to be upset with this pickup - especially since Pitt is going to be in need of a punter.
