More national pub for Elliot Pitts

Dave Telep in his listing of breakout performers from the two weekend tourneys in Vegas:
Elliott Pitts
2013, SF, 6-5, 190 pounds
The cerebral, skilled forwards always carry a premium tag. Pitts isn’t a one-trick pony with a single shot. He’s a handler, passer and shooter. The great shooters aren’t married to a single spot on the floor and Pitts can make shots from midrange and deep. His overall feel for the game is easy to spot and has to be valued. He needs strength to handle versus pressure and play through contact. It’s a credit to his game that Pitts is tough to pin down position-wise. He said Arizona State and California were on him the hardest. UC-Davis, Santa Barbara, Portland and Santa Clara will face stiff competition with Boston College in the mix. Lookout for Georgetown, UCLA, Oregon and Colorado; they would be players if they elected to enter the mix.
This is from Joel Francisco, attending the same tournaments:

Cal, Arizona State, Boston College, Santa Clara, Portland and UC Davis are his current offers and there will be more to come -- especially if he continues to play at the level he exhibited at the Pangos Spring Spectacular. Pitts plays with great pace and he is always on balance (utilizes the jump stop) when converting play after play. He can knock down jump shots from all over the court and he’s an excellent driver (solid first step) as well. He is one of the few players who have a solid midrange game to boot and he appears to be getting more confident with each event.
