In the last two days, Pat Narduzzi has offered two more Junior prospects including a big tight end.
The first offer went out on Friday to cornerback Nasir Peoples from Archbishop Wood (Warminster, PA). This was a big few days for Peoples (6-foot, 185 pounds) because he received three offers in two days (Virginia Tech, Pitt and Rutgers).
“It’s been a great week. To get my first offer from Virginia Tech, then to get two more it’s been exciting. But to get a big offer like Pitt, it’s special.
“Before I got that first offer, I was trying not to think about it. I just wanted to keep working hard and hopefully one would come one day. Now that I’ve gotten a few, it’s the same thing. Work hard and stay humble,” said Peoples.
Peoples tells me that he received the offer from DC Josh Conklin who told him that he liked his size and speed. The junior cornerback says that his biggest strength in the secondary is that he likes to hit.
As far as what he knows about Pitt, Peoples told me he likes Darrelle Revis and that during his freshman season in high school, he played against current Pitt safety Jordan Whitehead.
The other offer went out last night to an out of state tight end.
Luke Ford from Cartersville, Illinois is the latest tight end to get an offer from the Panthers. The first thing that stands out about Ford is his size: he’s 6-foot-7, 250 pounds. 247 Sports rates Ford as a 3-star recruit with offers from Oklahoma State, Illinois and Arkansas.
Ford becomes the 13th junior tight end that holds an offer from Pitt. Ford joins Zack Kuntz (Penn State), Trenton Gillison (Michigan State), Jeremy Ruckert, Leonard Taylor, Brenden Bates, Judge Culpepper, TJ Banks, Elijah McAllister, Matt Alaimo, John Fitzpatrick, Kyle Pitts and Keaton Upshaw.
