The Pitt football program landed its 3rd member of the 2018 class and 1st WPIAL product when Jefferson Hills (PA) Thomas Jefferson High School defensive end Noah Palmer verbally committed to the Panthers.
Palmer chose the Panthers over scholarship offers from Pitt, Akron, Army, Ball State, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Kent State, Miami (OH), Robert Morris and Toledo. He’s currently listed at 6-foot-4 inches, 225 pounds and has ample room to grow. Pitt continues to heavily recruit his teammate, defensive tackle Devin Danielson (6-foot-3 inches, 295 pounds).
Pittsburgh Sports Now spoke with Palmer shortly after Pat Narduzzi offered him a scholarship. He presciently stated, “Pitt is huge for me. I’ve grown up all around Pitt and have always wanted to go to Pitt. It’s actually a very high possibility for me, they’re just a great fit for me. I could very well see myself going there.”
Palmer joins fellow class of 2018 commitments, Montvale (NJ) St. Joseph’s HS quarterback Nick Patti (6-foot-3 inches, 195 pounds) and Cambridge (MA) Buckingham & Browne & Nichols HS tight end Jay Symonds (6-foot-5 inches, 257 pounds).
