Pitt 2019 Junior Series: Erick All
Erick All, Tight End, 6-4, 215
Fairfield High School (Fairfield, Ohio)
After not taking a tight end in their just concluded recruiting class, Pitt will no doubt be looking to add at least one in their Class of 2019.
Earlier this week, Erick All became the eighth junior tight end to receive an offer from Pitt.
All (6-foot-4, 215 pounds) is from Fairfield, Ohio and holds an offer list that includes Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Purdue, Rutgers, Syracuse, Rutgers and Toledo.
“Pitt was actually the first school that I ever talked with which was back in the middle of my sophomore season. Back then, they told me that they were going to keep an eye on me. Since then, I’ve been staying in touch with them all through my junior year,” said All.
All tells me that the schools that he’s been in contact with the most are Pitt, Rutgers and Penn State, although they haven’t extended an offer yet.
“I think Penn State could be close to offering me because I’ve really been talking to them a lot.”
So, what type of tight end is Ali? More of a pass-catcher or better at blocking?
“I feel like I’m an all-around tight end, meaning I can both block and catch. my team moves me around on offense as an H-Back. I also line up on the line and they also split me out in the slot. I’m moved around a lot,” said All.
Since he’s been in contact with Pitt for over a year, I asked him what things stand out to him most about the program?
“The thing that stands out most to me about Pitt is how committed the coaching staff has been to me. I want to go to a school that really wants me and not to a school that just offers me because other schools have offered too. I want to go someplace that’s really committed to me and will work to develop me.”
“I haven’t visited Pitt’s campus yet so I’m really looking forward to making a visit out there soon or to a game in the fall.”
