Pitt FB Recruiting
Reeves Talks Pitt
Could Pitt’s recent pipeline to the state of Ohio land them another recruit? This wouldn’t just be any old recruit, it would be an elite, 4-star prospect.
Charles Reeves (6-5, 240) is a player that the Pitt coaching staff has been recruiting for a while and is likely at the top of Pitt’s recruiting board for tight ends. The Steubenville, Ohio athlete has visited Pitt a couple of times and speaks regularly with head coach Pat Narduzzi.
“Coach Narduzzi is the coolest coach I’ve ever met,” said Reeves. “He knows my coaches so I talk to him often.”
Narduzzi and Pitt aren’t the only schools that Reeves talk with in fact, he recently received a really big offer that both surprised and excited him. Nick Saban and Alabama called him and offered him a scholarship.
“Getting that offer from Alabama was crazy! I thought they were just gonna talk to me (but they offered me a scholarship),” said Reeves. “It was the best feeling I had in a while.”
Aside from Pitt and Alabama, Reeves also holds offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, Illinois, Kentucky, Rutgers, Wisconsin and Syracuse.
So, of all these schools, I asked Reeve which team is at the top of his list and what’s his timeline for making a decision?
“Pitt is Number 1 on my list,” said Reeves. “It feel good to be #1 on a high team like Pitt’s recruiting board. Yes, I could see myself committing to a school soon.”
