A new name might be emerging as a possible quarterback recruit in Pitt’s Class of 2019.
Clearfield, Pa. quarterback Isaac Rumery made the drive to Pittsburgh today in order to take in Pitt’s first spring practice of the 2018 season.
Rumery (6-foot-1, 205 pounds) is still in search of his first offer but is currently in touch with many schools including Georgia, Penn State, Mississippi State, Rutgers, Temple, Cincinnati, Eastern Michigan, Central Michigan, Toledo, Duquesne, Holy Cross, St. Francis, and Liberty.
On his way home from Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh Sports Now spoke to Rumery, who left with a favorable impression of the Pitt football program.
“I’ve been in contact with Pitt for two or three months now,” he said. “I’ve been talking with Mark Diethorn and Coach (Tim) Salem and feel the relationship is strong. However, after today I feel that it’s grown tremendously. They showed me a lot of love and showed me that they were very interested.
“I was excited to come down today and see what a real college environment was like. I was very curious as to what it would be like. I was fortunate enough to be able to sit in on the position meeting and saw what a quarterback and offensive coordinators meeting was like. I saw them taking notes on plays and writing down plays and caidences. We then toured the facilities, which were just amazing.”
The time in the meeting gave Rumery his first real chance to meet and talk with offensive coordinator Shawn Watson.
“It was my first time meeting Coach Watson and he was just telling me how impressed he was with my film,” Rumery said. “He also told me that he was going to come watch me throw in the spring. I thought Coach Watson was really real. A lot of times, when you meet coaches on visits they almost try to put a show on for you. Coach Watson just seemed genuine and I really liked the person he appeared to be.”
It appears Pitt has legitimate interest in Rumery. I asked him where he thinks things stand and if an offer could be in the horizon?
”I definitely think that an offer is possible. They want to see me throw. Coach Mark told me that if I perform in person like I did on film that I’d be able to earn a scholarship. I just have to show them that I am who I am on film.”
