Brief mention here, but congrats to former Pitt defensive lineman Myles Caragein for making the National Football Foundation's Hampshire Honor Society. He received the honor for averaging at least a 3.2 cumulative GPA over his college career.

He was the only Pitt player in the Big East to have that distinction.

On the football side of things, I'm a little surprised Caragein hasn't signed with anyone yet - at least to my knowledge.

He was a solid player for the Panthers and, thanks to Todd Graham, he had experience playing in both a 3-4 and a 4-3. There's still plenty of time for him, though, and before the draft, it seemed like the Oakland Raiders and Jacksonville Jaguars may have some interest in him. At the very least, some teams may bring him in for a workout.

Still, even if he doesn't play in the league, he took his classes seriously and now has a degree to fall back on. And that's the point of going to college if you can't make the pros.
