Tyrique Jarrett doesn't seem to be in any hurry to make his decision but it looks as though Pitt, the local option, is in a good position right now.
Jarrett, a defensive tackle from Pittsburgh (Pa.) Allderdice, is very familiar with the Panthers and that's one of the reasons he's looking at them so closely.
"I like Pitt because it's my hometown school," Jarrett said. "I'm used to hearing about them and I'm always going to have them up near the top."

That has to sound good to the Pitt coaches, who have made the 6-foot-3, 320-pound tackle one of their top defensive line targets in the Class of 2012.
With offers from Pitt, Cincinnati, UConn, Temple and a host of smaller schools Jarrett is one of the top available defensive tackles in that part of the country.
"I'll be doing my official visits probably towards the winter," he explained. "I don't know where I want to go yet so I'll just see where it takes me.
"I haven't really narrowed it down yet but of my offers the main ones I'm looking at are Cincinnati, Pitt, UConn and Temple. I can't really think of any others."
Jarrett said Temple and Pitt are recruiting him the hardest.
