A new name has entered the picture to be the Pitt quarterback commitment for the Class of 2018.
Saint Xavier (Cincinnati, Ohio) junior quarterback Chase Wolf received the news that he’d earned a scholarship offer from the Pitt Panthers.
Moments after receiving the offer, Pittsburgh Sports Now had a chance to talk with a Wolf.
“I’m very excited about this offer. Pitt’s a great program with great coaches. I just received a message from Coach Watson who told me to call him. I called him and he said that he really liked my tape and what I can do with the ball. He said he’s been eyeing me for a while now and said you’re my first offer at Pitt,” said Wolf.
“I’m actually at school right now and got the message while at my locker so I texted my family and they’re super excited.”
Upon getting hired, Watson and HC Pat Narduzzi started following Wolf on Twitter which was a sign something could be happening.
“I thought something could be coming. Coach Watson asked me for my number a couple of weeks ago but I didn’t think it would come this quickly, but I’m not complaining.”
While we were talking, Wolf told me that he’s good friends with someone currently on the Pitt team.
Wolf has been life long friends with Pitt quarterback Thomas MacVittie. While they were growing up, Chase played basketball with Thomas and they’ve remained close friends. The two quarterbacks share the same offseason quarterback coach, Tony Pike. In fact, MacVittie is friends with Wolf’s sister and the two families are extremely close.
“Actually, I just talked to him a couple of days ago and I was asking him how he liked the new OC and he said he loved him. He loves what he’s doing and the new offense he’s going to run and really likes him as a person too,” said Wolf.
Wolf tells me that his biggest strength is his arm and that something he’s working on is his foot speed outside the pocket. Considering he was playing behind Penn State quarterback commit Sean Clifton, I don’t think anyone has seen how good Wolf can or will be.

I wrapped things up by asking Wolf what’s his timeline for making his college decision.
“I’m planning on committing wherever I go before my senior season begins so I’m going to visit schools as soon as my basketball season is over. I haven’t figured out exactly which schools I’ll be visiting but I’m definitely going to visit Pitt,” said Wolf.
“Pitt stands really high with me. I’m looking forward to seeing the facilities because I’ve heard they’re spectacular. I’m really just looking forward to meeting the coaches and viewing everything and seeing the campus.”
