Pittman solid to South Carolina but looking

Saturday was Florida’s second junior day of the season and South Carolina linebacker commit Sherrod Pittman (6-1, 225, Jacksonville, FL First Coast) came to campus.

This wasn’t the first time for Pittman to visit Florida so the relationship between the coaches is there but Pittman wanted to see the campus this time and that’s exactly what he did on Saturday.

“The visit was good,” Pitman said. “My favorite of the visit was the tour around the different departments. The host showed us around campus and it was a real nice visit and the campus was looking really good today.”

During the visit Pittman t had the opportunity  to sit down with Florida head coach Will Muschamp who had a strong message for him.

“Coach Muschamp says that he loves that I’m a great leader,” Pittman said. “He said that I’m a great person to put the team back on top. I love that coach Muschamp talks to me about stuff off the field and not just on the field stuff.”

While Pittman was talking with Florida’s coaches and strength staff he was able to learn about the little things that it takes to be a college athlete.

“The coaches at Florida talk to you about the things that you have to do on your on to be successful,” Pittman said. “They talk about how you have to go to bed on time, what you need to eat and what you need to do to get rid of the body fat to get stronger and faster.”

Two weeks ago Pittman visited South Carolina and now he has seen Florida again which now has Pittman thinking about his college options.

“I’m solid to South Carolina in my commitment,” Pittman said. “I love everything about South Carolina but I’m giving Florida a chance right now.”
