    Looks like landing Okoro just got a little tougher

    As Pitt offered today according to this:

    TheRecruitScoop Alex Kline
    Pittsburgh offered 2012 guard Nkereuwem Okoro of St. Raymond (NY) a scholarship today.


    "We embrace that challenge and what it presents to us. Im going to approach all 12 games this way: Were going to win them all. If we prepare and then go out and execute, were going to win all 12. Now how many are we going to end up with at the end of the year? I dont know, and youre right, I wont put a number on it."- Paul Rhoads on having the toughest schedule in the Big 12

    I don't think that's the case, it just sounded like he really wanted to go there, then other schools were the second option.

    I think Fred can get him, we've been in on him the entire time and we have a decent shot.

    Re: Looks like landing Okoro just got a little tougher

    The way a few of Okoro's quotes have been with Pitt in the mix without even having an offer from them you knew that it if they offered it would be a tough draw... While I don't count us 100% out, this certainly brings our chances down to a very measly single digit number...

    It's too bad, but we have a few other options that I don't think are any step down in talent...

    That's my impression, too. If he was just waiting for a Pitt offer, and the reports we were given here suggested that he was, and he has it, it's probably over.

    I don't think so. Pitt has the reputation as a school that doesn't waste time offering recruits that it doesn't think it has an awfully good chance at getting. Not saying its over, but this is going to make it real difficult imo.
