The quarterback is the most important position on the football field. A team without a talented one will have a difficult time being successful. Up until this point, Pitt hasn’t been able to land one for its Class of 2017 but it’s not because of lack of effort.
Pitt coaches have offered some very talented and highly ranked quarterbacks such as Hendon Hooker, Matt McKay, Jake Allen, Lindell Stone, Davia Mills, and Kingsley Ifedi but to this point none have given a commitment.
Two more names can be added to that list because in the last 24 hours, Pitt has offered 2 of the most highly ranked quarterbacks in the entire country.
Last night, 4-star prospect Mac Jones (Jacksonville, Florida), who’s already committed to Kentucky, received an offer from WR coach Kevin Sherman. Jones is 6-3, 181 pounds and holds offers from most of the major programs.
Check out highlights of Mac Jones. I’m expecting to talk with him this afternoon about Pitt.
This morning, Pitt offered Tate Martell (Las Vegas, NV) who’s ranked as the #1 dual threat quarterback in the Class of 2017.
Up until last Wednesday, Martell was committed to Texas A&M but ended that because he wasn’t connecting with Aggies new offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone.
Martell (5-11, 203) is not only the top ranked dual-threat quarterback but also ranked as the #22 overall prospect in the country. The Vegas quarterback has been offered by schools like USC, UCLA, Florida State, Auburn, Alabama, LSU, Ohio State and Michigan.
