Pittsburgh Sports Now has learned that Pittsburgh Central Catholic junior Brian Dallas will attend Pitt football’s junior day this Saturday.
Dallas, a 6-foot-3, 215-pound defensive end, is rated as a 3-star prospect by 247 Sports. He has offers to Robert Morris and Toledo, but has been shown a lot of interest from bigger schools. He went to camp at Ohio State last year and West Virginia has shown interest, as well.
He is known as a strong pass rusher and could fit into Pitt’s plans in the 2019 class. They’ll graduate two defensive ends in this upcoming year, Dewayne Hendrix and James Folston, Jr.
Dallas visited Pitt in September and was hoping to come away with an offer at that time.
“I feel like I’m close to getting one from them,” he said to Pittsburgh Sports Now’s Mike Vukovcan. “If I can keep making plays and keep my grades up I feel one could come soon. … To get one, considering it’s my hometown team would mean a lot to me. To have the chance to play near home would mean a lot to me, my family and my friends. It would be really cool.”
Dallas’ Central Catholic linemate, David Green, signed with the Panthers after the 2018 season.
