Today begins another week for the Pitt football coaches to be on the road recruiting high school football players of all classes throughout the country.
This weekend, the program held their second weekend of official visits for high school seniors. As we’ve been reporting all week, running back Mychale Salahuddin, defensive end Habakkuk Baldonado, safety Kiy Hester and offensive tackle Marcus Applefield were in town this weekend. We hope to talk to these players later today to get a recap of their visit so stay tuned for that here on Pittsburgh Sports Now.
Speaking of a recap, since the Panther coaches handed out numerous offers this week, we thought if would be a good idea to review the list of players that received offers this week from Pitt. We list these offers everyday in the Vocelli’s Recruiting Notebook but here are the players in case you might have missed some of them.
