UPDATE (8:26 PM)-
**The Pitt staff extended an offer to a very talented player who happens to be a freshman. Aydin Henningham is a freshman wide receiver/cornerback from Delray Beach, Florida. Not only did Henningham (6-1, 185) get an offer from Pitt today, he also got ones from LSU and Virginia Tech. He also has ones from Florida and Tennessee.
PSN spoke with Henningham after getting the offer.
“It was exciting when I heard about the Pitt offer. What stands out to me about Pitt is the loyalty the coaches have for their players. Also, I heard they have a great facility and I hope one day to check it out,” said Henningham.
“My biggest strength as a receiver is my physicality. I’ll go up and get the ball at the highest point. That’s my game.”
“It’s a blessing to get all of these offers. All of my hard work is paying off. However, I’m being told not to get caught up with the offers and to keep working hard.”

UPDATE (8:18 PM)-
**Source tells me that Pitt coaches were at Irvington High School in New Jersey to check in on a number of talented recruits. I’m told that Pitt was there for 2018 Brandon Robinson, 2018 Jasiah Provillion, 2018 Lance Turay and 2018 Jalen Scott.
Provillion is the only one of those players to have an offer from Pitt.
UPDATE (8:10 PM)-
**Cincinnati 2018 quarterback Chase Wolf, who visited Pitt, made a verbal commitment tonight to Paul Chryst.
**The Pitt football staff offered another player from Georgia and the interesting part is that he’s already committed to another school. 2018 3-star safety Peyton Woulard, who’s already committed to Wake Forest got the news from Pitt.
Woulard (Suwanee, Georgia) also holds offers from Vanderbilt, Purdue, Kentucky, Iowa State, Indiana, Duke and Boston College.

UPDATE (12:19 PM)-
**The biggest offer of the Kevin Stallings era went out this morning. 2019 point guard Cole Anthony from Archbishop Molloy High School in New York received an offer from Pitt. 247 Sports rates Anthony as a 5-star recruit, the #2 point in the country and one of the Top 15 players. This is another offer to a guard from New Jersey/New York. Is this the influence of new Pitt assistant Sam Ferry, who came from Monmouth?
