"I'm very ambitious about continuing my education and playing career at the next level. My favorite team growing up was the East Carolina Pirates."
What are your plans camp-wise?
"I plan to attend some prospect camps this summer at ECU, NC A&T, and NCCU. I am also planning to participate in the Eastern North Carolina Top 50 Combine on June 30th."
What are your strengths on the field?
"I think I'm a great cover corner with a nose for the football. I feel like I am at my best in press coverage. I enjoy competing and defending opposing teams' best player. At 6'2, I don't have blazing speed, but I can close very quickly. I do have great leaping ability on jump balls. I'm pretty aggressive against the run and very good at making open-field tackles."
What things do you need to work on?
"I lack anticipation to gamble and at times I play too aggressive."
Who is your favorite player and why?
"My favorite player is Jarrelle Revis of the New York Jets because of his work ethic. Plue, he is one the best cover corners in the NFL."
Plymouth Head Coach Robert Cody says, "I feel like Kendrick Pitt will be an asset wherever he land at the collegiate level because of the love for the game and his competitive nature."
Plymouth Co-Defensive Coordinator/Secondary Coach Cory Crossen says, "Kendrick has great play-making skills for a Division 1 DB despite his lack of blazing speed. He is at his best in man or zone coverage."
