Washington (D.C.) H.D. Woodson defensive end De'Jon Wilson continues to rise. The 6-foot-2, 230-pound defensive end pulled his second BCS scholarship earlier this week, yet another offer from the Big East.
"I want to say on Monday or Tuesday Pittsburgh offered," he said. "Man, I just feel as though this is marvelous.
"I'm just amazed. Pittsburgh is a good program, but I'm overwhelmed by the offer. I had a feeling the offer would come through sooner or later as they were staying in contact with me and they saw what I can do.

"The offer just encourages me to work hard and I appreciate all the love I get from all the schools that offer me, it's just big."
Wilson holds offers from Rutgers, Marshall, Temple and Toledo too.
What has Pittsburgh told him?
"I just know they run a 3-4 defense," he said. "Their coach is switching it up and they want me to play defensive end or outside linebacker. That's great. I like playing defensive end, but if I'm able to rush the passer, I live for getting that sack. I can get it standing up or with my hand on the ground, either way."
In the meantime, visits are coming for Wilson.
"Actually I'm supposed to be visiting Temple next Saturday, that is when I'm supposed to be going down there," he said. "I'm setting up a visit to Toledo and Marshall and Rutgers for their spring game."
Two other schools may be close to offering according to Wilson.
"I feel like I'm on the verge of more offers if I go down to Virginia Tech and I might leave with an offer," he said. "Michigan is closest to offering me too.
"With Virginia Tech, I'm going down for their spring game on the 23rd. I know they have sat down as a staff and watched my film and liked it. Coach Sherman has said he can really use me in their defense and they like my size, awareness, strength off the ball and aggressiveness. I'm a baller they can use me in the defense and I hope the offer comes."
Wilson maintains no lean anywhere at this time stating.
"I don't have a favorite school, with college football anything can happen."
