A player that Pitt has shown interest in suddenly became available after re-opening his recruitment.
Wilkes-Barre 2018 offensive lineman Chris Bleich announced this morning that he’s no longer committed to Penn State.

Bleich (6-foot-6, 305 pounds) is a 247 Sports 4-star prospect with offers from Mississippi State, Nebraska, Rutgers, Syracuse, Virginia Tech and Pitt.
Last weekend, Bleich took a visit to Nebraska and reportedly really enjoyed himself so they’re obviously a team to watch.
The Pitt coaching staff offered Bleich back in December and he visited the school during Pitt’s Junior Day.
Back in February, here’s what Bleich told us about his impression of Pitt after Junior Day.
“I loved it at Pitt. I loved how the gym was simple, nothing flashy just what you need. It’s crazy how you can be practicing right next to the Steelers. Pitt is absolutely an option for me, loved what they had to offer.”
