Pitt assistant coach Tim Salem made a recruiting trip across the country today in order to check-in on two top prospects in California.
Salem was at St. John Bosco High School in Bellflower, California to see 2019 linebacker Spencer Lytle and 2019 tight end Jude Wolfe, who today received an offer from the Panthers.
Wolfe (6-6, 240) is rated by Rivals as one of the Top 10 tight ends in the country. He’s rated as a 3-star recruit but holds an offer list of a 5-star recruit. Currently, Wolfe has been offered by Arizona State, California, Florida, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oregon, South Carolina, TCU, Tennessee, Texas A&M, UCLA, USC, Utah and Washington.
Currently, Wolfe is only the 4th junior TE to have an offer from the Panthers.
“It’s always super cool being able to have the opportunity to play football at any school,” said Wolfe. “I really like Coach Salem, so the offer was awesome. I started following the Pitt program when James Conner was there.”
“I came in contact with Coach Salem a week or two ago and today he was on campus. I bumped into him and he let me know I had an offer to play football at Pitt.”
Wolfe’s teammate Spencer Lytle, has held an offer from Pitt since last season and has been talking to him about the Pitt program.
“Spencer has told me nothing but great things about the school, and he first told me about the school, and their interest in me,” said Wolfe.
Over the weekend, Wolfe attended Junior Day at Notre Dame and reportedly has serious interest in Notre Dame, USC, UCLA, Washington and Florida. Now that Pitt has entered the picture, I asked him about their chances with him.
“I’m open to any schools recruiting me regardless of the location. I’ve already been to various parts of the country and have got the feel of a few areas. I like Coach Salem so I do have some interest in Pitt.”
