UPDATE (6:53 PM)-
**The Pitt coaches were permitted to go back on the road this week to evaluate recruits and they appear to be liking what they’re seeing out there.
In particular in the state of Michigan.
For the fourth time today, Pitt has offered a player from Detroit.
Cass Tech 2018 3-star linebacker DeAndre Square got a Pitt offer tonight. Square also has offers from LSU, Michigan State, Kentucky, Wisconsin, Arizona, Iowa, Minnesota and Missouri.

UPDATE (10:52 AM)-
**Pitt extends a couple of offers to two sophomore players in Detroit, Michigan.
This morning an offer went to 2019 safety Marvin Grant, Jr (6-1, 170) from Martin Luther King High School. This is Grant’s first Power 5 offer.
Last night, 2019 athlete Jalen Graham from Cass Technical in Detroit received an offer from Pitt and like Grant, this was his first Power 5 offer.
Pitt continues to try and successfully recruit the state of Michigan.
UPDATE (10:25 AM)-
**This might be the best recruiting on Twitter that I’ve seen. Pitt really wants Butler lineman Jake Kradel.
