With every passing day, Pitt's football recruiting class gets smaller. National Signing Day is Wednesday, but instead of growing the class, Paul Chryst's is shrinking.
First up was Will Parks who is now headed to Arizona to join Dakota Conwell. Now, I was never all that high on Parks, if you'll remember. He wasn't highly touted and Todd Graham apparently decided that after seeing three minutes of him on film and two backpedaling drills that he was a good fit. That's borderline idiotic unless you're dealing with a top recruit, but to each their own.
Also out is Marzett Geter ... but it apparently wasn't his choice as Pitt reportedly ripped his scholarship.Mr. Geter, like many college athletes, enjoy Twitter. Only problem with that, though, is that eventually you'll say something stupid. I've done it, we've all done it.
Geter apparently wasn't all that happy about Paul Chryst adding certain players:
Sto-Rox cornerback Marzett Geter, the first player to give a verbal commitment to Pitt from the Class of 2012, had his scholarship offer pulled by Panthers coach Paul Chryst on Thursday following a critical post on Twitter.
When Ryan Lewis became the fourth cornerback to commit to the Panthers, Geter tweeted, "Another corner commits. I'm not liking this at all" and suggested Pitt was "wasting" scholarships.
Geter later backed off that a bit, but the damage was done. Add in the fact that he, too, wasn't a highly touted guy and his eligibility was in question was probably enough to send Chryst over the edge.
Neither of these are particularly big losses, but at this late stage, Chryst better be working double time on adding some players soon to help fill out the class.
