The commitment train keeps going for Paul Chryst and the staff as the Panthers add a giant defensive tackle and a local linebacker.
Defensive tackle Mike Herndon played linebacker at Riverheads HS in Staunton, VA, but at 6'4" and 320 pounds he will obviously make the move to defensive tackle in college. Herndon recently participated in Pitt's camp. His other offers include Virginia Tech, UConn, Western Michigan, James Madison, and Old Dominion.
Linebacker Quintin Wirginis is another player who impressed recently at camp, and he also committed to the Panthers tonight. The other offers for 6'2" 225 pound Wirginis came from Temple, VMI, Robert Morris, and Slippery Rock. Wirginis plays at Fox Chapel HS in Pittsburgh.
