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.
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."
