It's been a good two weeks for the Pitt Panthers. Their verbal commitment total stood at just three in mid-June. As the month nears an end Pittsburgh (Pa.) Keystone Oaks defensive end Myles Caragein has brought that total to six.
"I committed to Pitt today," Caragein said. "I went down there and talked to coach (Dave) Wannstedt and coach (Greg) Gattuso. They were pretty happy."
Among Caragein's approximatly 20 scholarship offers were North Carolina, North Carolina State, Northwestern, Purdue, Iowa and Clemson. But Caragein is certain he wants to play for the Panthers.
"They have a great program that's back on the rise," he said. "I want to be part of it.
"The education is great and I get along with the coaches. I'm 100% committed to Pitt."
The 6-foot-1 and 258-pound Caragein made 68 tackles including eight sacks during his junior season. He had 14 tackles for losses.
