Pat Narduzzi and his coaching staff didn’t play a game today but received a big win.
Grassfield (Va) DE Patrick Jones just announced that he’s picked Pitt over hometown Virginia Tech. It’s a major win for Pitt to be able to get a talent like Jones to pick them over Va Tech.
I’m told that the Pitt coaching staff was the #1 reason he selected Pitt, especially LB coach Rob Harley.
Jones is the second talented defensive end to pick them in the last week. On Friday, Charlotte (NC) 3-star prospect also picked Pitt over Virginia Tech.
With addition of Jones, the Panthers are loaded at defensive end.
Pitt Defensive Ends:
Ejuan Price (if granted a 6th year)
Like Gilbert, Jones will enroll at Pitt next month (January). In fact, Gilbert tells me that he and Jones will likely be roommates at Pitt.
