McGregor Talks About Players' Commitments
Just spoke with DeMatha Coach Bill McGregor about his two players that committed over the weekend, with wide receiver-defensive backs Kyrrel Latimer and Jeff Knox accepting scholarship offers from Virginia and Pittsburgh, respectively.
"Kyrrel is going to be a combination-type kid, I think. He can play corner and he can play safety. For us, he looked great Saturday [in a 7-on-7 tournament] on the offensive side of the ball. I think they want him as a d-back kid. He's got some wiggle and he's fast, though - his mom is the track coach at Bowie State.
"I think it was one of those things where he knew where he wanted to go to school. You know how I do those gym workouts in April and May? Coach [Anthony] Poindexter and Coach [Bob] Price came up and watched him and wanted to make sure he could play corner too. After seeing him work out, they had no doubt and offered him. Coach [Al] Groh likes to see people in person, so Sunday was his big day. Everything went well and he committed to them."
As for Knox, McGregor said it was "like a dream" for the Pittsburgh native to go to his hometown school.
"He's known the coaching staff at Pitt and I think that played a major role in where he wants to go to school," McGregor said. "From Day One, that was his number one choice."
Don't be surprised if more Stags make their college choices soon.
