Still No Offer For Wetzel
"I put about 10 pounds on since the season and can get bigger, but I'm in very good shape,'' Wetzel said. "I can move pretty well, too, because I'm a basketball player. Pitt just wanted to see how I perform with them watching me, how well I can move and if I'm aggressive enough to play here.
"I really like Pitt, and I would like to get an offer from them. It's one of my top schools, because they're my hometown team and I grew up watching them. So, it'd be cool to play here. As far as the City League goes, there are some good players (at Pitt) from the league, and I don't think we have anything to prove.
"We just don't have most of the advantages guys get at some other schools, but we play football just as hard as the next guy,'' Wetzel added. "That's for sure. (And) I'm working very hard to get an offer. I'm very excited to get my senior season going and prepare for my future. I'm looking forward to it a lot.''
While the Panthers coaches got a good look at Wetzel Friday, including offensive line coach Tony Wise, they might still want a little more film on him before handing out an offer. Until then, it's such a short trip for Wetzel to visit the practice facility and campus that he could take a return trip any time.
"I've been here a few times,'' Wetzel said, "and I like all the facilities at Pitt, the coaches, too. And I've talked to a lot of them. Coach (David) Walker has been recruiting me, but I know a lot of them.
"I met Coach Wise (Friday), and he told me what I need to work on to get better. So, I'm going to do that, and hopefully it'll all pay off in the end. I'm a hard worker, so I know things are going to work out in the end.''
And if the situation is right, that could be with Wetzel's hometown team.
