Pittsburgh Sports Now has confirmed that a big-time recruit has decided to make an official visit to Pitt.
4-star athlete Jonah Morris tells me that he will make a visit to Pittsburgh in the near future.
Morris (6-4, 190) is a talented athlete from Akron, Ohio. He’s a kid capable of playing either wide receiver, linebacker or safety in college.
Morris originally committed to Michigan State but backed out of that commitment. He plans on making a visit to Notre Dame on January 22.
Morris didn’t give me a specific date for his official visit.
UPDATE (5:27 PM)-
**Tyjuan Garbutt is one of the best players in the entire country for 2017. Rivals has Garbutt ranked as the #6 DE next year and overall the 190th ranked player.
Interestingy, Garbutt has had interest in Pitt dating back to last year. This afternoon, Garbutt tweeted this:
“Pitt on the rise FrFr”
I then talked to Garbutt about where Pitt stands with him.
He said, “Coach Powell has checked in on me a couple times. I’m just noticed all types of talent that has committed to Pitt lately.”
I asked him does this wave of talent coming into Pitt make him look at Pitt more seriously?
“Yes, I like that this coaching staff is recruiting all this talent”, said Garbutt.
Keep a eye on this top defensive end from Virginia.
SUNDAY (3:17 PM)-
**As I’ve said before, the scholarships that Pitt offers kids do have an experation date.
I found out today that Pitt and Philadelphia DE Andre Mintze have “moved on.” I’d have to imagine with the defensive ends that have already committed, Pitt moved on from Mintze.
**Check back today for more updates. I’m working on a few leads.
