It's National Letter of Intent Day (I know because my e-mail inbox is blowing up thanks to the WVU sports department) and the big news across the WPIAL, and throughout the country, is that there is no news in the world of Jeannette senior Terrelle Pryor.
Pryor, who was reported to chose Ohio State over Michigan today, has not made a decision. Ohio State, Michigan and Penn State are his final three.
Locally, several schools were active this moring.
At Trinity, three linebackers signed. First-team all-staters Andrew Sweat (Ohio State) and Mike Yancich (Penn State) are locked in, as is Brandon Weaver (Ohio University).
Two other high profile athletes not playing football are Chartiers-Houston golfer John Popeck (Maryland) and Peters Township soccer player Shane Pruitt (Lafayette). Pruitt was named the state player of the year.
The fax machine at South Fayette was also busy this morning. Kicker Drew Hareza signed with Old Dominion. Zach Patterson signed with Lafayette and Jon Taglianetti officially agreed to walk-on at Pitt.
Andrew Taglianetti, Jon's twin brother and an all-state player for Pittsburgh Central Catholic, is also headed for Pitt. Andrew was originally offered a grayshirt, which means he would not enroll until January and have his scholarship kick in at that point. With the news that Pitt lost quarterback recruit Zach Stoudt (Cliff Stoudt's son) to Louisville, there's a possibility he'll be part of Pitt's class today.
I'll be headed to Pitt's NLI presser later today at Heinz Field and will check into the Taglianetti situation.
