POV Sunday Afternoon Podcast; June 17th

Sorry I missed the Sunday morning podcast for this week – my family took me out to Father’s Day Brunch at Laurel Racecourse for the all-you-can-eat buffet and wagering on the horseys.

Spent $87 on brunch and lost $25 on the nags so Dad was out of pocket $100 on the day. Thanks Family!!

Here are Pitt’s nine 2019 verbal commits as of this writing; not a bad haul for the 15 guests here on Official Visits weekend – and that is just up to now.  Maybe we get one or two more. Those fans who get off on Florida players will be excited – although the only other FL schools to have offered our recruits so far are USF, Florida International, FL Atlantic and FL A&M. Wondering where Florida, Florida State Miami and UCF are with these kids?

From Rivals.com:

Davis Beville QB Greenville, SC 6’6″ 205 3*  5.7
Brandon Mack DE Montgomery, AL 6’4″ 215 3*  5.7
Travis Koontz TE Ventura, CA 6’5″ 260 3*  5.7
Brandon Hill DB Apopka, FL 6’0″ 190 3*  5.6
Deandre Jules DE Germantown, MD 6’3″ 220 3*  5.6
Calijah Kancey DT Miami, FL 6’1″ 265 3*  5.6
Vincent Davis RB Fort Lauderdale, FL 5’9″ 160 3*  5.5
Leslie Smith LB Miami, FL 6’0″ 189 3*  5.5
Khadry Jackson DB Orlando, FL 6’2″ 200 0*  NR

Funny that our recruit with the best offer (Nebraska) is non-ranked, however that is the best of the bunch.  The others have similar P5 offers as Pitt’s offer out are.

As I said in the podcast – if you really want the best take on Pitt’s current recruiting then you should listen to Rivals.com’s Chris Peak’s twice weekly “Panther-Lair” podcasts found here.
