Pitt has added two recruits for the Class of 2012, as Xavier (Ohio) offensive lineman Brandyn Cook and Germantown cornerback William Parks have joined the fold.â†µ
Cook was impressed with Pitt's coaching staff and facilities, but what seems to have sealed the deal is that Pitt was also very interested:â†µ
Cook, 6-2, 290, had offers from Youngstown State and Miami (Ohio) and interest from several others, St. Xavier coach Steve Spect said.â†µ
"Everybody was in a wait-and-see pattern," he said, "but Pitt really wanted him and was excited about him from the get-go. It's one thing being offered a scholarship and another thing being the first choice."â†µ
Parks was also a running back in high school and is listed as a two-star recruit by Scout.â†µ
Other Pitt 2012 recruits so far include three-star defensive back Myles Hilliard, from Ohio, and Sto-Rox quarterback Marzett Geter, who will probably be a wide receiver or defensive back at the college level.
