Pitt Football Adds to Recruiting Class of 2021, Signs Cole Mitchell
PITTSBURGH—Pitt head football coach Pat Narduzzi today announced the signing of Maryland native Cole Mitchell as another addition to the program’s recruiting class of 2021.
The 6-foot-5, 235-pound Mitchell (Frederick, Md./Linganore) joins the Panthers after an outstanding spring season at Linganore High School, where he contributed on offense, defense and special teams.
“Cole had an abbreviated senior year and never had an opportunity to prove who he was as a player,” Narduzzi said of Mitchell. “He was prepared to go to IMG Academy for a postgraduate year. Fortunately, he came to our rising stars camp in June and did an unbelievable job working with the tight ends. He shows great power and explosion on tape and did the same thing at camp when we watched him. A week later, he made an official visit to Pitt and we are excited to add him to our 2021 class.”
Mitchell also represented Team Maryland at the 2021 Big 33 Game in May.
He becomes Pitt’s third tight end signee in the 2021 recruiting class, joining early enrollees Gavin Bartholomew and Jake Renda, who participated in spring ball for the Panthers.
Pitt opens the 2021 season at Heinz Field on Sept. 4 against Massachusetts. Kickoff will be at 4 p.m.
So far we have 11 kids; eight are 3*, one is a 2* and two are 0*s. Averaging 2.4*s at this time. Mitchell has no other offers.
