Pitt Offers Penn State 2018 Recruit



Although it’s the dead period in college recruiting, that doesn’t mean teams can’t offer scholarships to players. Pitt offered a player last night and you’ll be interested to hear who he’s already committed to.

Chris Bleich is a 2018 offensive tackle for Wyoming Valley West High School in Plymouth, Pennsylvania and yesterday got offered by the Pitt Panthers.

Interestingly, back in April, Bleich (6-5, 308) gave a verbal commitment to James Franklin and Penn State.

“I was excited to receive an offer from a program like Pitt,” said Bleich. “They play in a tough conference and play really good football. I received the offer when I was texting with the coach.”

“I was kind of surprised it happened. The first interaction happened when the coaches were allowed to text my class. The Pitt coaches came to my school once this year also.”

Not only is Bleich a big human being, he’s also a pretty big prospect, rated by some services as a 4-star recruit with offers from Pitt, Penn State, Mississippi State, Rutgers and Syracuse.

“I don’t know much about the Pitt program right now but one thing that stands out to me is their offensive lineman,” said Bleich.

So, the big question is since he’s committed to Penn State, will he give Pitt a chance to recruit him and possibly make a visit to Pittsburgh?

“I’m gonna take a visit to Pitt after the dead period. My cousin goes to school there also. But any school that shows interest in me, if possible I’d like to visit that school.”

Looks like the Pitt-Penn State rivalry will be continuing, this time off the field.
