Rashad Weaver is a name that’s been all over Twitter the last couple of days.
Weaver is the player that de-committed from Michigan after being committed to them for over 7 months.
Here’s what Weaver said when making the decison: “After being committed for about 7 months and receiving little to no contact from staff. I was infomred by Coach Harbaugh that there is a 50/50 chance that he would or would not have room for me…..So I was basically a plan B. And I know within myself I am not a plan B player.”
Weaver went on to say, “I was offered a preferred walk-on spot or to go to prep school but that isn’t an option for me when I have multiple D-1 offers. I believe I am better than that. It’s okay it’s all business.”
Weaver is back on the market and guess who reportedly offered him a scholarship today? Yep, Pat Narduzzi and Pitt.
Weaver (6-5, 255) is a TE/DE from Cooper City, Florida. According to the Detroit News, Pitt was one of the schools that were in contact today with an offer. Others were Kansas, Illinois, Toledo and Central Florida.
It’s interesting that Pitt jumps in this late but tight end is a spot that Pitt has little depth.
I’m trying to contact Weaver for an interview.
