Does Coles still have Pitt offer?

Clairton, Pennsylvania junior wide receiver Trenton Coles had received a verbal scholarship offer from Pitt prior to the coaching turmoil that engulfed the Panthers' program.

Does the 6-foot-3, 175-pound Class of 2012 prospect still have a verbal offer from Pitt?

"Well, I went to their basketball game yesterday and I talked to a couple of people briefly," he said. "One was the offensive coordinator and one was the quarterbacks coach. It wasn't for long. They basically just told me who they were and then we started watching the basketball game.

"I was going to ask them (about the offer) next time I go."
