Academics to play a big part in Chestnut’s decision
2011 cornerback recruit, Terrell Chestnut (Pottstown, Pa./Pottstown), has narrowed his list of 18 scholarship offers down to three schools — Pitt, West Virginia and Rutgers, recruiting insider Bill Kurelic reports.
There was internet speculation last week that the Panthers have emerged as the front runner for Chestnut but a decision is not imminent from the 5-foot-10, 170-pound cornerback. Chestnut is regarded as a three-star recruit.
Academics are playing a big part in Chesnut’s decision who is looking to major in pre-med.
Meanwhile, Pitt remains in the mix for one of the country’s top running back prospects, Jameel Poteat (Harrisburg, Pa./Bishop McDevitt)
The 5-foot-11, 200-pounder rushed for 1,664 yards and scored 24 times, while leading Bishop McDevitt to a 12-1 record during his junior season.
Landing a verbal commitment from Poteat would be a major win for the Panthers. The talented running back is also weighing offers from top schools Florida, Tennessee, Notre Dame, Iowa and Cincinnati. He has reportedly received over 40 scholarship offers.
