Jeannette's Cox narrows list to 10 ..... Bisnowaty talks recruiting

Written by Mike White on .

A few recruiting notes:

Jeannette quarterback-defensive back Demetrious Cox said today he has narrowed his list of colleges to 10. I guess that's "narrowing" because he did have a lot of other offers. Everyone is recruiting him as a defensive back.

His 10 are Pitt, Penn State, Michigan State, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Texas Tech, Texas A & M, Wisconsin, Kansas and Arizona State.

In tomorrow's Post-Gazette, we'll start our "Blue Chip Chat" series. A different player every day. Cox is first.

As for Bisnowaty's recruiting, he said he also plans to narrow his list of schools to five or six soon. The kid has gotten around this summer. He visited Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Purdue, Florida and even went to Oregon. He's also been to Pitt and the Panthers will definitely be on his final list. Penn State will not.

"Penn State did offer me," Bisnowaty said. "But they said they were taking four linemen in this class and they have four. Now they might have two openings, but I'm not sure if they're still recruiting me or not. It's sort of a deal where they're out of it. It's a great school and a great program, but it's just not for me."

A reminder that high school football practice officially starts Monday around Pennsylvania. I'll be "going camping" at a number of schools this week and have reports and notes throughout the week.
