Pankey mulls final two

Hamilton, Ohio, three-star offensive tackle Adam Pankey is less than a week away from signing his letter of intent and faxing it to the school of his choice. He plans to use every remaining day to decide which school will receive that letter.
"I'm waiting until Signing Day to make a decision," Pankey said. "I've closed everything off except Pittsburgh and West Virginia.
"I'm talking with my family about it still and just thinking hard on it. I'll just go with my gut feeling and that's where I'll decide to be."

The 6-5, 290-pound Pankey committed to Pitt in October, but re-opened his recruitment in January after taking an official visit to West Virginia the weekend of Jan. 13. He previously took an official visit to Pittsburgh back in November, and has no more official visits or in-home coaches visits scheduled before he announces his decision.
"I just had my last in-home visit today with West Virginia," Pankey said. "Coach [Dana] Holgorsen was already in before, so it was the line coach and Coach [Steve] Dunlap. They've all been positive visits."
Pankey said Pitt coaches made their final in-home visit with him earlier this week, and the last two meetings with both staffs will factor heavily into his decision.
"When they come and visit to the house, sitting down and talking to my family is definitely a big deal," Pankey said.
As part of signing his letter of intent, Pankey expects to make his college selection known at an event at his school next Wednesday.
