Pitt will be taking one quarterback in this year’s class.
Pittsburgh Sports Now believes that South Carolina 3-star prospect Davis Beville is the most likely to make a commitment.
Beville is making his official visit to Pitt later this week from June 14-16.
However, since he hasn’t committed yet, Pitt can’t assume anything and has to continue scouting prospects.
Curt Casteel (6-2, 190) from St. Thomas Aquinas in Fort Lauderdale is someone on Pitt’s radar and is a player Shawn Watson has been watching for a couple of years.
Over the weekend, Casteel traveled to Pittsburgh from Florida to participate in Sunday’s prospect camp.
“Two springs ago, Coach Watson came down to watch me throw and didn’t talk much after that. Then he came back out this spring and talked a bit afterwards. He then called me two weeks ago and told me he liked me and would really like me to participate in the camp and have the rest of the coaching staff see you,” said Casteel.
How does Casteel feel he did and what feedback did he receive from the staff afterwards?
”I thought I performed pretty good and didn’t have that many mistakes,” said Casteel. “If there’s one thing I can probably work on is my consistency. I talked with both Coach Narduzzi and Coach Watson afterwards and they told me they were glad I came up and that they’d be in touch soon.”
Casteel is a Rivals 3-star recruit and holds Power Five offers from Boston College and Syracuse. Cincinnati was the first program to offer him.
What would an offer from Pitt mean to Casteel?
”It would mean a lot. I didn’t know that much about the school prior to coming up here but from what I saw, I’m really impressed with everything. I could definitely see myself here. An offer would mean a lot.”
