Friday Pitt Recruiting Notes



UPDATE (2:46 PM)-

** Just heard from Donovan Jeter and he told me that Pat Narduzzi is expected to be at his game tonight. If Pitt doesn’t eventually land Jeter, it won’t be for a lack of effort.

UPDATE (12:10 PM)-

** Pitt’s recruitment of Ohio 4-star athlete continues. I spoke briefly with White who told me that Pitt assistant John Peterson was in to see him this week plus he spoke with various members of the Pitt defensive staff by phone.

White believes that he’ll receive a Pitt offer at the end of his season and that the plan right now could be for him to play safety.

**Coach Salem will be scouting a game in New Jersey tonight and tomorrow, he’ll be in New York and New Jersey at multiple games.

UPDATE (11:45 AM)-

** Some Pitt basketball recruiting news.

UPDATE (11:18 AM)-

** Pitt has extended an offer to 2018 4-star CB Jairus Brents from Louisville, Kentucky. Brents (5-10, 180) holds other offers from Wisconsin, Tennessee, Michigan State, Louisville, Mississippi State, etc.

The Pitt coaching staff will be finishing their week of recruiting by watching certain recruits at their games tonight. Here’s what I’ve been able to learn:

** WR Coach Kevin Sherman will be watching current 2017 commitment Darian Street play tonight.  Prior to that, he’ll be checking in on 2018 TE Kyle Pitts from Archbishop Wood Catholic (Warminster, PA).

Pitts (6-4, 224) is a 3-star prospect with early offers from Pitt, Penn State, Rutgers, Syracuse and Temple.

** LB Coach Rob Harley will be in Ohio tonight and will be watching current commit LB Kyle Nunn .

** TE coach Tim Salem will spend the day in New York and New Jersey recruiting and I’m still trying to confirm which state he’ll be in tonight watching a game. I’ll update this once I learn the answer.

UPDATE (10:21 AM)-

** RB Coach Andre Powell will spend the day recruiting in Washington DC and Maryland this morning and afternoon. Tonight, Powell will be at the game of 4-star linebacker Nathan Proctor from Lackey High School.

As we’ve reported many times, Proctor is a major target for Pitt and a player they’ve been pursuing hard over the last year.  Proctor has visited Pitt multiple times and has will have the Panthers as one of his finalists.

Proctor has offers from major programs like Florida, Georgia, Miami (FL), Mississippi, Notre Dame, Penn State and Virginia Tech.

** Pitt defensive coordinator Josh Conklin will spend the evening in Philadelphia watching the game of cornerback Kenny Bennett. The tall, athletic cornerback has Pitt as one of his final three schools along with Maryland and Temple.
