Juco wide receiver drops Pitt

Courtney Gardner (Roseville, Calif./Sierra College) was all set to make his official visit to Pitt this weekend but things changed in a hurry for the junior college wide receiver.

“I am not going to Pitt this weekend, and they are now out of the picture,” Gardner said. “What happened is big, with all those coaches leaving. I’m just going to be looking things over now.”

Gardner, 6-foot-2 and 215-pounds, visited Arkansas this past weekend and now calls the Razorbacks his leader. At this time he does have an official visit set up with Florida State (1-13) next month.

Gardner had a monster fall campaign, catching 61 passes for more than 1,100 yards and scored 14 touchdowns. He also blocked seven field goals and three punts.
