PITTSBURGH (AP) -Pittsburgh freshman quarterback Pat Bostick practiced with the team Wednesday, one day after returning to preseason football camp.
Bostick had left on Aug. 6 to deal with an undisclosed personal issue.
``It set him back, but we did a lot of things without pads,'' offensive coordinator Matt Cavanaugh said. ``But the tempo really picked up when the pads went on, and he missed that. Situations that we could've put him in during those 10 days would've helped, but we're going to get him caught up.''
Bostick is Pitt's top recruit and a likely challenger for a starting job this season. He threw for 7,259 yards during his career at Manheim Township High School near Lancaster.
``He can't be in full pads, but we're not scrimmaging. So he was able to go out and throw and make some decisions,'' coach Dave Wannstedt said. ``I was pleased with his start, but it's just Day Number 1.''
