**Coach Narduzzi just had a conference call with the media and had this to say about the current recruiting/evaluation period.

“Next weekend is our last weekend on the road recruiting. Our coaches have done a great job on the road evaluated going across the country. I’m excited with not only where our recruiting is going for the ’18 class, but I feel like we’re so much farther ahead right now with the restructuring of our recruits office that we’ve got a great ’19 board going, as well. To me, that fires me up. As a coach, you’re trying to constantly make things better. Right now, I feel really good about where we’re at,” said Narduzzi.

UPDATE (2:52 PM)-

UPDATE (9:32 AM)-

**From now until the end of June, I look for Pitt to get a handful of commitments. The spring evaluations will be over and Pitt will host conducting four camps in the month of June.

Who are recruits that I see committing to Pitt? Here’s some players that I see joining Pat Narduzzi and his program:

Noah Palmer, DE, Thomas Jefferson: I would put this at 100% certainty

Blake Zubovic, OT, Belle Vernon: Although Penn State is a consideration, I think Zubovic decides to stay home and follow in the footsteps of fellow Belle Vernon alum Dorian Johnson and attend Pitt.

Nick Patti, QB, Montvalve, New Jersey: I see Patti jumping on the scholarship offer and opportunity to play for Narduzzi and Pitt. Has developed great relationship with OV Shawn Watson.

John Morgan, OLB, Hyattsville, MD: Have no inside information on this but it’s just a hunch.

Judson Tallandier, CB, Hyattsville, MD: Really enjoyed his visit and has developed good relationship with coaches.

Jake Kradel, DT, Butler: This was a tough one to call because of Urban Meyer and Ohio State. Although I might be wrong, I see that Kradel sees and feels how important he is to Pitt and Narduzzi.
