It was a pretty good day for the Pitt football program as they pick up a last second win over Georgia Tech and then pick up a commitment from a player they’ve been recruiting for a long time.
While visiting today, New Jersey offensive tackle Carter Warren (6-6, 265) gave Pat Narduzzi and Pitt a verbal commitment. Warren is Pitt’s 15th commitment in the Class of 2017.
Warren, who’s close friends with Pitt commitment and New Jersey native Owen Drexel, is Pitt’s 3rd offensive lineman commitment.
“I just felt like it was the right place for me,” said Warren.
Warren is from Wayne, New Jersey and goes to Passaic County Technical Institute. Warren selected Pitt over offers from Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Miami (FL), Michigan, Michigan State, North Carolina, Penn State, Rutgers, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia Tech.
“It came down to where I felt like I had the most connections with and where I felt most comfortable. I felt like Pitt was the right place for me.”
Warren is a player that the Pitt coaching staff has spent a bunch of time recruiting and it has to feel good to them that the hard work has paid off with a commitment.
Warren told me that prior to his visit here this weekend, he knew that he’d be selecting Pitt today.
“It was a combination of my relationship with the current players and the coaching staff. They have some great recruits coming in. They just have a great coaching staff, can’t get any better,” said Warren.
