With the Pitt football coaches out on the road evaluating and offering new potential players, I figured it was time for an update on where some of Pitt’s top recruiting targets currently stand.
Over the last day, I’ve contacted a number of recruits to get an update and timeline for their college decision.
Also, I’ve put together a breakdown of what states Pitt coaches have offered the most scholarships in for the Class of 2018.
I believe that you’ll find the breakdown pretty interesting.
First off, here are the recruits that have gotten back to me. I’ll update this throughout the day once I hear from more players.
Chris Collins, DE/LB, Richmond Virginia: Collins tells me that he’s done making visits and that he’ll be making a decision this month, although no firm date has been selected. Louisville, North Carolina, Tennessee and Pitt are atop his list.
Jake Kradel, OL/DT, Butler HS: Kradel says he will be making his decision in June, with no exact date yet. The local product tells PSN that he plans on visiting Pitt one more time sometime this month.

Judson Tallandier, CB, DeMatha HS (Maryland): Tallandier doesn’t have any upcoming visits planned, but says that “I do plan on making my decision before the month of August” and that Pitt is one of his top schools.

Brian Asamoah, LB, Columbus, Ohio: The 4-star linebacker tells PSN that he plans on visiting Pitt again the first week of June.
John Morgan, OLB, Hyattsville, Maryland: “No upcoming visits planned. I’m thinking about coming to Pitt for camp on June 4th and Virginia Tech June 11th and Duke June 16th. I’m pushing my commitment back until after the Duke visit.”
Carter Bradley, QB, Jacksonville, Florida: “I’m trying to get my top visits out soon and see where I want to go and Pitt is one of those places.”
**We’ll update this when I hear back from the various recruits.
Question for you, (without looking at the map below) name the four states that Pitt coaches have offered the most scholarships in for the Class of 2018.
The top state shouldn’t come as a surprise but I think Pennsylvania and Georgia are very interesting. It’s obvious that Pitt is trying to make an impression in Georgia and the Maryland/DC region.
