Monday Daily Notebook
UPDATE (7:11 PM)-
**Big day for former Pitt and Woodland HIlls cornerback Lafayette Pitts as he was promoted to the Miami Dolphins 53 man roster. Another WPIAL player in the NFL!
UPDATE (2:27 PM)-
**A source tells me that no serious injury to Aliquippa star safety Kwantel Raines and he will play this Friday vs. Derry.
UPDATE (1:18 PM)-
**Washington DC 3-star (per 247 Sports) DT Jaylen Twyman says that he will make his official visit to Pitt the weekend of December 9-11. From all indications, Pitt appears to be in pretty good shape with Twyman.
Twyman (6-2, 290) holds offers from Tennessee, South Carolina, Penn State, Michigan State, Louisville, etc. Twyman is a player that Pitt and assistant Andre Powell has recruited very hard.
UPDATE (1:04 PM)-
**Pitt’s home game vs. Duke will start at 3:00 PM and will be televised on Root Sports.
**One of the most productive players in the WPIAL this year reportedly plans on making his college decision soon. Brad Everett of the Post-Gazette says that Thomas Jefferson star Zane Zandier is ready to announce.
TJ coach Bill Cherpak says Zane Zandier will announce college decision in a few weeks. Will be either WVU, Virginia or Michigan St. #WPIAL

UPDATE (10:09 AM)-
**It appears as though Pat Narduzzi is looking at possible changes on his starting defense.
This morning, Pitt released its weekly depth chart and the word OR appeared a few times on the first team defense.
DE- Rori Blair or Allen Edwards
NT- Tyrique Jarrett or Jeremiah Taleni
DT- Shakir Soto or Amir Watts
CB- Avonte Maddox or Damar Hamlin
SS- Jordan Whitehead or Reggie Mitchell
FS- Terrish Webb or Reggie Mitchell
CB- Ryan Lewis or Dane Jackson
UPDATE (7:50 AM)-
This goes in line with my column from yesterday, here’s an interesting tweet from Chris Dokish.
Pitt started 2 players on defense against Miami that had 5+ P5 offers- Price & Whitehead. Narduzzi brought 14 in on defense last year.

UPDATE (7:24 AM)-
**Pitt top OL target Thayer Munford visited Ohio State on Saturday. Pitt’s in good shape with Munford but if he gets an offer from Ohio State, things could get interesting.
