PITTSBURGH — Pitt football was back in action on the South Side for practice number 10 of 2018.
The Panthers hosted four-star 2020 offensive tackle Paris Johnson, Jr., along with a host of other prospects — more on that in the PSN Notebook.
Johnson was of course, interested in the offensive line drills. He took in practice accompanied by his father, Pitt’s assistant director of player personnel, offensive quality control coach James Patton and director of recruiting Mark Diethorn.
Here’s some of the drills Johnson was watching offensive line coach Dave Borbely put the linemen through.
Borbely and company also invited the tight ends over to participate in a few blocking drills, with big freshmen Grant Carrigan and Charles Reeves impressing alongside their full-time blocking compatriots.
Elsewhere on the field, new defensive coordinator Randy Bates and secondary coaches Archie Collins and Corey Sanders put the defensive backs through a new tackling drill. Some cool moments here as they explain the drill and then Pitt’s backs sent the foam pads flying.
