Butler’s Jake Kradel and Penn Hills Julian Major are two of the more talented juniors in the WPIAL but interestingly, neither of them have an offer from Pitt. Yet.

Both Kradel and Major will both be in attendance tomorrow for Pitt’s Junior Day.

Major (6-foot-1-inch, 185 pounds) is regarded as one of the top junior wide receivers in the state of Pennsylvania. 247 Sports rates Major as a 3-star prospect with offers from Wisconsin, Arkansas, Boston College, Kentucky, Iowa State, Temple and Toledo.

Major is a player with tremendous hands, if the ball is near him, he’s going to catch it. However, that’s not what he considers his top asset.

“Definitely my top strength is getting off the line. That’s key for me is beating my opponent off the line. That’s something I focus heavily on. I run track in order to help with this,” said Majors.

“Right now, it’s also about my versatility. It’s about me getting the ball, about me getting the quick pass, it’s about me being able to do all kind of things for my team. When I get to college, it’s not going to be just about one thing that I can do for the team, it’s going to be about showcasing my versatility.”

The big question is could that be for the Pitt Panthers? Major is just excited to be heading to the South Side to continue to build his relationship with the coaches.

“Yeah definitely, it’s going to be good to be around that type of atmosphere with all the recruits and it will be good to see Coach Narduzzi. It should be fun,” said Majors.

What about a scholarship offer? Does he think it could come?

“We haven’t talked about it much. I guess when they want to do it they’ll do it. Coach Sherman keeps in contact with me. He’s wanted me to come down for some visits so it’ll be good to see him again. Until I get that call, I’m just going to keep working,” said Major.

“It would be more of an accomplishment. It would be the hometown offer and you’d have the chance to rep the city.”

Major tells me that despite a few big offers, he’s not leaning towards any school right now. His plan is to make a bunch of upcoming visits to personally view some of these schools.
