Anyone that watched Pitt this season knows that help in the secondary is needed. The two ways that can happen will come from the younger players on the roster and also through recruits in the Class of 2017.
Over the last couple of months, we’ve heard names of plenty of players that have received offers and also players that the Pitt staff is evaluating that eventually could get offered.
Here’s a list of some cornerbacks that Pitt is involved with that you should keep keep track of:
Ambry Thomas (5-10, 160 lbs) & Donovan Johnson (5-10, 176 lbs): Two 4-star recruits from Detroit. Coach Sims and Coach Hill have recruited these two players for well over a year. Both players have visited Pitt and expressed interest but Pitt isn’t a likely landing spot.
Harrison Hand (5-11, 180 lbs): 3-star player from New Jersey that Pitt visited last week and that they will also visit this week. Trying to get him to make an official visit.
Kenny Bennett (6-2, 192 lbs): 3-star player from Philadelphia who’s currently committed to Maryland. Pitt was the first school to offer Bennett and despite his commitment to Maryland, they continue to pursue him. Coach Conklin had an in-home visit with him last week and Pitt will be back to see him this week.
Endrickson Boucher (5-11, 173 lbs): 3-star player from Boynton Beach, Florida. Pitt recently offered him and visited him last week and will be back today to see him.
Anthony Johnson (6-2, 175 lbs): Pitt offered Johnson on Sunday and despite being committed to Louisville, will make an official visit to Pitt in January.
Damarri Mathis (5-11, 178 lbs): This 3-star recruit decommitted from South Carolina last week after visiting with Coach Conklin. Pitt will be back to see him today.
Jason Pinnock (6-1, 190 lbs): 3-star player that’s committed to Boston College but is being evaluated by Pitt. He doesn’t hold an offer from Pitt yet.
Noah Hamlin (5-11, 165 lbs): 3-star player from Clairton that Coach Narduzzi and Coach Conklin have been scouting for the last month. Like Pinnock, Hamlin doesn’t hold an offer from Pitt but that could change.
