Over the last year, the Pitt coaches spent plenty of time recruiting talented defensive players in Ohio. No doubt they’ll be back this year.
Dontay Hunter (6-foot-5, 220 pounds) is a rising 2019 defensive end from Westerville Central High School in Westerville, Ohio and on Saturday Hunter tells PSN he’ll be in town for the NC State game.
At this point, Hunter holds Power Five offers from Kentucky and Minnesota.

Last night, PSN spoke to Hunter about his upcoming visit and his developing relationship with the Panther coaches.
“My relationship with Pitt so far is great. I really love the family feeling that I get from the Pitt coaches because it makes me feel at home. At this point, I’ve mainly talked with Coach Partridge and Coach Winters. Right now, they want to get to know me better off the field as well as getting to know my family and finding out about my grades,” said Hunter.
“Pitt is recruiting me both as a defensive end and at tight end. I’m continuously working hard to get better at both positions. I feel the strength of my game is my ability to always get better and improve. The more I practice my craft, I just seem to get better and improve.”
Hunter is excited about the visit because although he’s only a junior, Pitt is a place that’s caught his eye.
”My interest in Pitt is high and always has been. They’ve been one of my favorite schools growing up as a kid. I absolutely can’t wait to get there,” said Hunter.
”An offer from them would be huge. I would highly, highly consider them. In my opinion, I think whatever God has set for in my life he will make happen. I’ll just continue to work hard with an offer or not.”
