Prospects Camp Yields QB Commitment


Werner, Sam, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (Pittsburgh, PA)


Pitt coach Paul Chryst repeatedly has said one of his staff's biggest criteria when evaluating potential recruits is in-person evaluations.

Now two seasons removed from the drama of the Todd Graham and Mike Haywood eras, Pitt has started to rebuild its image around young stars such as Boyd, a second-team All-ACC selection as a freshman, and fellow sophomore running back James Conner. …
