Narduzzi Era: Where Has Pitt Gotten Recruits From?

Recruiting is the lifeline of any college football program. The better teams recruit usually results in more wins.

From the first day he took over as Pitt’s head coach, Pat Narduzzi has made it very clear that he’ll go after the best recruits and he’ll go anywhere to try to get them.

Pitt hasn’t gotten to the point yet where they’ve been able to land many of the higher profile recruits but that hasn’t stopped them from trying.

If the Panthers are able to put more wins on the scoreboard that should start resulting in their recruiting battles against the bigger programs.

Narduzzi just wrapped up his 4th recruiting class and here’s a breakdown of the 78 recruits that he’s signed.

2-Star Recruits: 10

3-Star Recruits: 58

4-Star Recruits: 10

4-Star Recruits: AJ Davis (Florida), Charles Reeves (Ohio), Paris Ford (Pennsylvania), Kaezon Pugh (Pennsylvania), Ruben Flowers (Ohio), Jordan Whitehead (Pennsylvania), Darrin Hall (Ohio), Damar Hamlin (Pennsylvania), George Hill (Ohio) and Amir Watts (Illinois)
