The Pitt football team had issues with depth at the inside linebacker position this year.
Sophomore Saleem Brightwell was moved inside when Quintin Wirginis was suspended for three games and then suffered a season ending injury.
The plan is for Wirginis to return in 2018 but Pitt still needs to add more depth and just offered a player that would help with that.
Last night, Pitt extended an offer to Butler County C.C. (El Dorado, Kansas) 3-star linebacker Will Honas.
Including Pitt, Honas (6-foot-2, 225-pounds) also holds offers from Arkansas, California, Houston, Iowa, Kansas, Kansas State and Mississippi.
“I’ve been in contact with Pitt for about two weeks now. Coach Harley just called me (last night) and said that they wanted to offer me. He was pretty excited about it and I was excited to hear from him,” said Honas.
”He said that I’d be a good fit for their defense and I that I could come right in and make an impact for them.”
”I think I’m a physical player, hard-nosed, play the run well and I think off-field the field, I’m a good student.”
Honas tells PSN that now that his season is over, he wants to get serious about recruiting and narrow his list of offers down and start making visits.
“This weekend, I’m going to make a visit to Arkansas and then have a visit setup to Iowa in December,” said Honas,
“I’m definitely going to look into Pitt and consider taking a visit there. Before then, I’d like to try to get to know the coaches better to see if I think they’d be a good fit for me.”
