The 6-3, 200-pound linebacker from Leesville Road grew up close to the NC State campus and he has been excited about his future at the school ever since he committed a few months ago. Since that commitment he has been a regular around the school and has become very familiar with the coaches, players and campus.
He recently took his official visit, which gave him a great opportunity to meet new people while receiving the red carpet treatment.
"I took my official visit a few weekends ago," Pittman recalled. "It went great. I wish I could have done more but it was great. The stadium looked really great. I had a good time meeting all the players and I was treated really well. I got more of a look at how the players are treated and I met with the coaches.
"We went to Sullivan's, which was great. That's one of my family's favorite restaurants. Probably the thing I enjoyed most was sitting down with coach Tenuta and talking about my position and my future there. We talked about playing time, and I just had more bonding with him."
Tenuta didn't make any promises, but he did tell Pittman that he has the opportunity to get on the field early in his college playing days.
"He just said that by getting up there as much as I do I have an advantage," Pittman said. "Watching film, coming to practice and being so close to the school, I do have a kind of an advantage. I'll know what I'm doing when I get up there."
Pittman said he has been making trips to NC State around every other week, so he is very familiar with the people and places on campus by now. He said he knows a lot of guys on the team very well, so he's excited to join the team during the school's second summer session.
Leesville Road finished 9-3 and lost in the first round of the state playoffs. Pittman told Pack Pride he has been recruited exclusively as a linebacker.
