'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

The pipeline from Texas and Oklahoma to Pitt continued to flow today when senior cornerback Lloyd Carrington of Dallas' Lincoln High School told Panthers coach Todd Graham he plans to enroll.

Carrington, 6-foot, 180 pounds, visited Pitt on Saturday and Sunday after a stop in Minnesota. He also had been strongly considering Houston, among his 17 total offers. Other schools in the mix were Baylor, Oklahoma State, North Texas, Nevada, New Mexico, New Mexico State, Louisiana Tech and Tulsa. He had not previously committed to any school before visiting Pitt.

"Pitt is a very unique place with good facilities and a good fan base," Carrington said before boarding a plane back to Dallas. "And I believe in coach Graham."

Other Texas and Oklahoma high school players who have made verbal commitments to Pitt in recent days are cornerback Jason Frimpong of Irving, Texas, running back Corey Davis of Gladewater, Texas, and Isaac Bennett of Tulsa, Okla.
