Big Recruiting Weekend

In case you haven’t been paying attention over the last several years, June is when Pitt makes its money in recruiting.

Last year there was a record haul (10 commits in one week).  I was going to write a long and detailed article about it, but the good people at Pittsburgh Sports Now beat me to the punch.

From the PSN Article:

Pitt Commitments From June 16-23:

DT Calijah Kancey

DE Bryce Nelms

DE Deandre Jules 

QB Davis Beville 

DB Brandon Hill 

LB Brandon George 

RB Vincent Davis 

DE Bam Brima

LB Kyi Wright 

TE Jason Collier 

I’ll point out that one of these recruits was Pitt’s only Rivals four-star (QB Davis Beville) and another was one of their two 5.7 three-stars (Vincent Davis).  Here is a link to the class.

This year, Pitt has at least 22 guys doing official visits this weekend.  Ironically none of them appear to be from Pennsylvania.

Also from PSN (they’ve got 19 listed):

2019 June Official Visit State-by-State Breakdown:

Florida: 5

Ohio: 5

Georgia: 4

Michigan: 2

New York: 1

New Jersey: 1

Maryland: 1

Chris Peak put up a pretty interesting and free podcast about the weekend on Pantherlair.

The odds are against us getting another ten commits this week, but the odds are that we will pick up a few.

Also noteworthy…a four star WR de-committed from Miami and he happens to be visiting Pitt this weekend.  (Bryan Robinson)

Many of you say Narduzzi can’t recruit.  If he flips a four-star from Miami you may want to reconsider your position.

Last but not least…I’ll point out that our best two DE’s were lowly two-stars.  At least one of them appears poised for a very big year…
