Week in Review

“The Week Of The Quarterback”



The theme of the week for Pitt recruiting this week was Offering Quarterbacks.  In total, the Pitt coaching staff offered 5 quarterback prospects last week.

It’s becoming apparent that Pitt would like to get a quarterback signed relatively soon and have targeted a number of players.

Charlotte QB Kingsley Ifedi (6-3, 215) is someone that’s had an offer for awhile and even visited but isn’t ready to make a decision so Pitt  has added more names to their target list.

**4-star Mac Jones (6-3, 181) from Jacksonville, Florida and a Kentucky commitment was offered.   Jones was offered by a bunch of other schools too this week and would appear to be a long shot.

**4-star Tate Martell (5-11, 203) from Las Vegas, Nevada is the #1 ranked dual-threat quarterback in the country.   Martell is back on the market after de-committing from Texas A&M.  Like Jones, Martell isn’t a likely possibility.

**3-star Darriel Mack (6-3, 215) is a dual threat prospect from Norfolk, Virginia.  Mack also holds offers from Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia.

**3-star Kenny Pickett (6-3, 191) is also a dual threat quarterback from Oakhurst, New Jersey.  Pickett is currently committed to Temple but told me that while still committed to them, he’s keeping all of his options open.


**2018 4-star Artur Sitkowski from Old Bridge, New Jersey was offered by OC Matt Canada.   Sitkowski (6-5, 205) is a highly rated classic Pro-Style quarterback with offers from Boston College, Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina, Rutgers, South Carolina and Temple.


**A few others players that received offers from Pitt were: 2017 OT Connor Robbins (Florida), 2018 OT Qadir White (New York), 2018 WR Shaquon Anderson-Butts (Harrisburg, PA), 2017 WR’s Dontavius Butler and Jordan Pouncey both from Florida.


**One offer to tell you about from the Pitt basketball program and that was to Washington DC forward Luka Garza (6-10, 230).   Garza told me that he plans on visiting Pitt soon.   If you missed it, check out the interview we did with Garza from last night.
