Pitt’s 2019 class has a quarterback.
This morning while wrapping up the weekend of official visits, Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi landed the commitment of three-star quarterback Davis Beville.
Beville, a 6-foot-6 pocket passer from Greenville, South Carolina, is the No. 24 pro-style quarterback in the country according to 247 Sports.
He chose Pitt over Northwestern, Rutgers, Appalachian State, Cincinnati, Georgia State, Toledo, Western Kentucky and several FCS schools. Beville was also being recruited by Duke, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia Tech, though none of those schools had sent him an offer.
Beville’s quarterback coach Ramon Robinson told PSN in May that he compared well to Mason Rudolph at this point in his development.
“Since we started training years ago, I’ve seen him continuously growing year after year,” Robinson said. “There’s never been a flat moment. Where as some kids will tap out as far potential but what I’ve seen with him is someone that is growing year in and year out and he will continue to grow because his ceiling is so high and there’s still so much football left in him. He’s a late bloomer and someone that I believe is one of the top quarterbacks in the country that has been overlooked and I’ve seen a lot of them. I feel he can and will do just as well as some of the quarterbacks that are rated ahead of him.”
Beville is the fourth recruit in Pitt’s recruiting class. He first visited Pitt back in March and took his official visit this weekend.
Beville will join Kenny Pickett, Nick Patti and Ricky Town in Pitt’s quarterback room for 2019.
