Wannstedt resignation leaves Kline in limbo
Dallastown football standout Ben Kline said Tuesday he will take time to evaluate his recruiting options, after news broke that Pittsburgh coach Dave Wannstedt had stepped down from his post. Kline, a speedy senior linebacker, originally committed to Pitt back in June. He said he was caught off guard by Wannstedt's resignation. "(Dallastown football coach Kevin Myers) came in during basketball practice and told me," Kline said by phone Tuesday. "I was obviously surprised." The 6-foot-3, 225-pound senior said he'll use the next few days to take stock of his options. He declined to discuss any specifics, including what other schools could come into play. Kline, who is rated a three-star recruit by Scout.com, originally fielded offers from West Virginia, Michigan, Connecticut and Rutgers, among others. Penn State had also expressed interest, but did not originally offer Kline during the summer. Kline recently finished up a stellar senior season, in which he led the Wildcats (11-1) in tackles with 152 and scored 13 touchdowns (six rushing, seven receiving) on offense.
