The Panthers may not have had a good game against Florida State to open the season but the recruits were still impressed by the atmosphere. One of those is Qadree Ollison of Canisius HS in Buffalo, NY. The 6'1" 228 pound Ollison committed to the Panthers today over Penn State and Wisconsin. Syracuse, Rutgers, Maryland, Boston College, and Iowa were among the other schools that offered.
Ollison is a bruising, between the tackle runner and doesn't have home run speed, but he does have good quickness and agility for his size.
It remains to be seen how this will effect the recruitment of Washington HS star Shai McKenzie who many think was leaning towards the Panthers. Pitt would love to still add the 5'11" 210 pound McKenzie.
