Cardinal Mooney High School in Youngstown, Ohio is a place the Pitt football program is very familiar with.
Aside from recruiting there yearly, it’s the former stomping grounds of head coach Pat Narduzzi.
This morning, a player from Cardinal Mooney received an offer to join Narduzzi at Pitt.
3-star offensive guard Kyle Jornigan (6-foot-4, 320 pounds) received an offer from the Pitt Panthers. Prior to this, Jornigan received offers from Kentucky, Minnesota, Purdue, Cincinnati, Rutgers and Temple.
“Coach Borbely gave me a call yesterday and wanted to let me know they extended me an offer. I’m excited about it,” said Jornigan. “I know Pitt has a great history of football and is more than proficient in academics.”
Being from Youngstown, it’s not surprising that toughness is one of Jornigan’s biggest strengths.
“I’m a physical football player. I’ll fire out and if you’re not willing to match it then you’ll get pushed over. It’s not a nice game so why would I play like it is,” said Jornigan.
Jornigan tells PSN that he’s already visited Pitt a few times and says that Kentucky, Ohio U., Purdue and Minnesota are some of his other top schools.
