Last week we told you that a source told PSN that Pitt “had a couple irons in the fire” in terms of recruiting a 2018 running back.
This morning we found out who one of those irons might be.
One of the top running backs in the country has decommitted from his previous schools and has listed Pitt as one of his new finalists.
4-star running back Mychale Salahuddin (Woodson HS, Washington DC) has decommitted from USC and is now considering five schools.
Salahuddin (5-10, 193) announced that he is now considering USC, Clemson, Maryland, North Carolina and Pitt.
Credit Andre Powell for his recruitment of Salahuddin and getting Pitt in the position to possibly land him. Salahuddin is the #1 ranked prospect in DC and holds 39 offers including ones from Georgia, Florida, Michigan, Oklahoma, Wisconsin and West Virginia.
Now, let’s see if Pitt can get Salahuddin on campus for an official visit in January.
