Pitt received another verbal for its 2011 class - Woodland Hills star Lafayette Pitts. Pitts plays running back and cornerback in high school while returning kicks on the side, but he'll be lining up on defense for the Panthers:
"I bring a little bit of toughness to the cornerback spot because I like to press," Pitts said. "I want to stay close to home and they all feel like family here."
Pitts is currently rated as a three-star recruit by both Rivals and Scout. His offers included WVU, Iowa, Illinois, Maryland, Buffalo, and Kent State, but Pitt was the first school to offer him a scholarship. Last month, he reported that Pitt was at the top of his list, so it wasn't that big of a surprise. Still nice to see that he has kick return skills - something Pitt needs.
