Kitt Pommells , one of the most versatile athletes in the state of New Jersey, is up to double-digit scholarship offers. Projected as either a wide receiver or safety on the next level, schools seem split in terms of where they see him playing. Pommells does not care which position he plays.
“I have about 12-15 offers,” Pommells said. “Miami is close to offering, and I think they will offer soon. Some offers I know about are Pitt, Virginia, Syracuse, Boston College, Iowa, Rutgers, U-Conn, and Maryland. Of the schools who have offered me, I would say six like me as a wide receiver and the rest as a safety. I don’t care where I play.”
UVa, who is recruiting Pommells as a safety and was one of the first to offer, is one of his four favorite schools.
“My top schools are Virginia, Syracuse, Miami, and Iowa,” Pommells said.
The Cavaliers, led by primary recruiter Al Golden, are looking like a major player here and are in good position at this point in the recruiting process.
“I really like Virginia,” Pommells said. “The coaches there seem like fair people. My main recruiter is Al Golden and we get along well. I went down there for the Spring game. It was a big campus and it was really nice. They have a strong program.”
Next weekend Pommells will have a chance to visit UVa once again, when he attends the summer camp. He is unsure what other camps he will attend this summer.
“I’m not going [to UVa for Junior Day] this weekend,” Pommells said. “I’m going next weekend for a camp. My parents are coming with me.”
Miami has not yet offered, however if they do, Pommells would likely make an official visit to the Hurricanes.
“I haven’t seen the facility at Miami, but from what some people tell me, they really care about their players,” Pommells said. “I haven’t seen the campus yet, but I might take an official visit there to do that.”
Pommells is looking for a school with a good football history and a good coaching staff. He may make all five official visits before announcing his decision.
”The history of the program, the school, the coaching staff, and probably distance from home are all important factors,” Pommells said. “I plan on taking all five visits before I decide.”
Pommells has been a regular on Paterson Catholic’s varsity football squad since his freshman season. Ever since his high school career began, he has played a variety of positions including linebacker,...
