This weekend turned out to be a success for Pat Narduzzi and the Pitt Panthers as they land a highly rated defensive tackle.
4-star defensive tackle Kam Carter (East Mississippi Community College) gave a verbal commitment to Pitt prior to leaving his official visit. Carter becomes Pitt’s 22nd recruit in the Class of 2017 and the first defensive tackle.
Carter (6-4, 300 lbs) fills a need spot for Josh Conklin’s defense and is a player that can possibly step right in and play because of the graduation of seniors Shakir Soto and Tyrique Jarrett. Carter will now be in completion for playing time with Amir Watts, Jeremiah Taleni, Rashad Wheeler, Mike Herndon and Keyshon Camp.
Carter was former commitment of James Franklin and Penn State back in 2015 but was removed from the roster. This will make the second game of Pitt’s upcoming season a real meaningful one for Carter.
With three or four scholarships left, will Carter be Pitt’s last defensive tackle commitment? Washington DC’s Jaylen Twyman is a player most people expect to commit to Pitt on National Letter of Intent Day.
