Charlotte (N.C.) Mallard Creek cornerback Anthony Covington has decommitted. The 5-foot-10, 185-pounder discussed the constantly changing situation at this time.
"I'm not going to Pittsburgh, it just wasn't a good fit for me," he said. "As far as I know, I have the same offers I did before. My coaches are mostly dealing with my recruitment right now as we're in the playoffs."
Covington will redirect his recruitment once the season is over and briefly touched on what he'll be looking for from here.

"I'm pretty much looking for the same things I was from the beginning," he said. "For me, it's location, academics and a lot of opportunity. But, as I said, I'm not really focusing my attention to that, I'm trying to finish strong and I'll make my decision once the season is over."
Covington noted he is unaware of any new offers at this stage. Prior to his pledge, Covington held scholarships from the likes of East Carolina, Georgia Tech, Minnesota, Mississippi State, North Carolina, NC State, Virginia and Wake Forest.
Meanwhile, the cornerback is performing well as Mallard Creek faces Vance in the playoffs this week.
"We finished the season strong and won our first playoff game 64-0 or something," he said. "We haven't had a game within 21-points for awhile.
"I've been making the proper adjustments. I'm breaking down film and preparing myself every game. I'm making strides like everyone is on our team. We're just trying to achieve the ultimate goal of a state championship."
