Aside from landing tight end Matt Alaimo today, Pitt hosted a number of 2018, 2019 and 2020 recruits.
Pittsburgh Sports Now has reached out to a number of these prospects in order to get their reaction to their day on the South Side.
We will update this story throughout the night and tomorrow as we hear back from these players.
Wendell Davis, LB, 2018 Pitt commitment
“Today was basically a day to work with the coaches. I wasn’t able to attend the camp so I came here to basically work out with Coach Harley and the Pitt staff. I also got to sign the commitment ball. I got a chance to get a better tour of campus and I got a chance to see a dorm too.”
Coleton Beck, RB, Blacksburg, Virginia
“I loved it! I felt very welcomed and was very impressed,” said Beck.
I asked Beck what stood out most about today?
“Coach Narduzzi working one-on-one with me and the other guys at workouts. That was really good and I liked that a lot. I felt really comfortable talking with Coach Narduzzi and he was easy to talk to. He was upfront and seems like an honest players coach!”
“I had a good opinion about Pitt before so this visit reinforced my feelings,” said Beck.
Could you see yourself playing for Pitt?
Ron Hardge, S, Fort Lauderdale, Florida
“Coming into the city was amazing! After coming out of the tunnel, it just lit up my eyes. Pitt is a great environment and I can see myself there,” said Hardge.
“The Cathedral of Learning stood out to me because it’s one of the biggest academic places and it was really original. Pitt’s facilities were just outstanding with the whole sharing thing with the Steelers.”
What was Hardge’s impression after his first extensive conversation with Pitt’s head coach.
“Coach Narduzzi was great! He made me feel at home and I think he’s a great coach and father. We just talked it up about how I liked the place and what I can do if I decided on Pitt,” said Hardge.
“Yes, I can see myself playing for Pitt. I love there defense and I feel like I can make a ton of plays over there and strive for that national championship!”
