Even though Canton (OH) McKinley defensive end Se'Von Pittman lives in one of the more pro-Ohio…
Pittman Not Near Decision
One of the top defensive ends in the country, Se'Von Pittman, has attracted an impressive offer list following a sterling junior season at Canton McKinley. Pittman, 6-foot-6, 245-pounds, is ranked as a four-star prospect on Scout. With an offer list that includes Alabama, Michigan, West Virginia, Ohio State, and others, Pittman is not suffering from a lack of quality programs to research, and he has spent this spring doing exactly that. He took in Ohio State's spring game on Saturday with high school teammate and Buckeye signee Steve Miller. "I had a great time at Ohio State and it was great being there with Steve (Miller)," Pittman stated. "I saw a lot of other guys I know and have played against, like Brionte Dunn, Austin Appleby and the Davis twins (Chris and Demitrious) from Austintown Fitch. It was cool seeing everybody and talking to them. I've been to Ohio State a lot, so I feel like I've seen everything down there." "I mostly watched the defensive line play and looked at different techniques they use," he continued. "I was able to talk to Coach (Jim) Tressel and Coach (Jim) Heacock, and it was good seeing both of them. It was good seeing all the younger talent out there like Braxton Miller and J.T. Moore. Coach Tressel told me if I would enroll early at Ohio State that I would be playing in the game next year." Pittman discussed the recruiting process, the offers he has received, and also spoke of his time table for making his final decision. "Seeing guys out there that I played against was kind of funny, and it made me realize that it won't be too long until I'm at that level," he explained. "I'm enjoying the recruiting process and I have most of the offers I was looking for. I've been able to visit a lot of great schools like Ohio State and Michigan. I'm definitely wide-open in my recruitment and I'm in no hurry to get it over with." "I still have schools I need to check out further and I could be going to see West Virginia and Michigan State in the next few weeks," he continued. "Right now, everything is going as planned and I could be taking official visits in the fall. My mom and I want to take things really slow and not rush into something I might regret later on. I could see myself making my decision in the fall, probably in the middle of my season."
