Pitt FB Recruiting

Potential Of Big Recruiting Class



2016 National Letter of Intent Day is 11 days and the Pitt football coaches are involved with some elite talent.

To this point, Pat Narduzzi has commitments from five 4-star ranked players:

Ruben Flowers, WR
George Hill, RB/DB
Kaezon Pugh, LB
Juwann Winfree, WR
Thomas MacVittie, QB




Pitt has a realistic shot of increasing that number from 5 up to 8 4-star players. They’re finalists for the following players:

Damar Hamlin,  CB
Darnell Salomon, WR
Amir Watts, DT
Khaleke Hudson,  LB


The last time  Pitt had a recruiting class that had more than five 4 and 5 star players was back in 2008:

Jonathan Baldwin (5-star)
Chris Burns (4-star)
Shayne Hale (4-star)
Jarred Holley (4-star)
Lucas Nix (4-star)
Cam Saddler (4-star)

If Pitt is able to land these guys, the overall team ranking will no doubt improve. Currently, they are ranked 34th in Rivals Recruiting rankings.

30) Utah
31) Louisville
32) Oklahoma
33) South Carolina
34) Pitt
