Add Lafayette Pitts


Scarlet Report is reporting that onetime Pitt verbal Lafayette Pitts (he decommitted after their coaching fiasco) has verbaled to Rutgers following his weekend visit. I honestly don't know too much about Pitts (considering that he was a Panther verbal for months, and RU only got recently involved). Given current and projected future roster needs, Pitts and some combination of Charles Davis and/or Ben Martin will probably end up as defensive backs along with John Aiken. Pitts should make up somewhat for the sting of not signing Sheldon Royster. Although, for posterity and maximum bitterness please note that South Carolina took a sixth DB verbal over the weekend, then immediately pulled commit Jared Henry's offer. Something had to give.
