The next two weekends are big days in the Pitt football recruiting calendar because its Junior Day Weekend.
The football program invites junior players to visit the program for the weekend. Recruits that hold offers from Pitt and those that are looking for offers are invited by the coaching staff.
For the last week, we’ve been working on which recruits will be visiting Pitt. Keep in mind, they’ll be a Junior Day this Saturday (February 18) and also next Saturday (February 25).
