Wannstedt holds decision on QB

Although redshirt junior Bill Stull has taken almost every first-team snap, Pitt coach Dave Wannstedt said the Panthers won't name a starting quarterback until after Wednesday's scrimmage -- the third of training camp.

"Once we finish up on Wednesday, we'll evaluate the film and then finalize our depth charts at every position," Wannstedt said.

• One day after Wannstedt raved about Lucas Nix, the 6-foot-6, 300-pound freshman from Thomas Jefferson split first-team repetitions at right tackle Monday with junior Joe Thomas for the first time in camp.

"Joe Thomas was a little bit inconsistent and we've got to make sure that everybody understands that we have to prove ourselves every day we come onto this field," Wannstedt said. "It doesn't matter if you're a senior or a freshman or who you are."

• Sophomore tailback LeSean McCoy and fifth-year senior middle linebacker Scott McKillop were among the 35 players across the nation named to the watch list for the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award.
