Prior to hosting their month-long team camps on Pittsburgh’s South Side, Pitt teamed up with Georgia to host a camp today in Athens.
It turned out to be beneficial because one of the offensive lineman impressed the Pitt staff enough to earn himself an offer.
Class of 2019 offensive lineman Christian Mahogany from Paramus, New Jersey got word that he received an offer from Pitt. Mahogany (6-5, 305) is a three-star recruit that also holds an offer from Virginia.
After getting the news from Pitt, PSN had a chance to talk with Mahogany to get details and his reaction to the offer.
“I’m at this camp in Georgia and Coach Narduzzi, Coach Borbely and Coach Salem are here,” Mahogany said. “The first day of the camp yesterday, the offensive line coach at the night practice was really impressed with me and saw some of my 1-on-1’s. He then brought Coach Narduzzi over and then offered me and two other kids on the field today after the workouts. The O-Line coach said he just loved me. Said I was a gritty, tough guard and that I had a scholarship.”
Mahogany’s relationship with Pitt started before today. He’s been in contact with Tim Salem, Pitt’s New Jersey recruiter, since the start of his sophomore season. He also knows and has a good relationship with a current member of the Pitt team.
“I talk with Saleem Brightwell a lot because he lives on the next block over from me so I talk with him everytime I see him and he always tells me how much he loves Pitt,” Mahogany said.
Mahogany is opening the eyes up of a lot of schools lately and has been hearing a lot from Georgia, Tennessee and some Big Ten schools. Over the last two days, he’s spent a lot of time with coaches from Georgia and believes an offer could be coming.
Mahogany is looking forward to talking and working with the Pitt staff this weekend. He said he’s spending the day Sunday in Pittsburgh at Pitt’s camp.
