For the second time this week, Pitt has shown interest in a junior quarterback.
Earlier in the week, Michigan dual-threat quarterback Anthony Romphf received an offer and last night so did 4-star recruit Tyler Van Dyke.
Van Dyke (6-3, 205) is from Suffield Academy in Suffield, Connecticut. Rivals rates him as one of the top ten junior quarterbacks in the country.
Pitt now joins Boston College, Kentucky, Michigan, NC State, Syracuse and Vanderbilt as schools that have offered Van Dyke.
Van Dyke becomes the 7th junior quarterback that’s received an offer from Pitt: Romphf (West Bloomfield, Michigan), Evan Prater (Cincinnati, Ohio), Jack Salopek (Norwin High School), Evan Simon (Manheim, Pennsylvania), Parker McQuarrie (Weare, New Hampshire) and Michael Alaimo (Montvale, New Jersey).
It’s uncertain how many quarterbacks will be looking to take next year. Kenny Pickett will be a junior, Ricky Town a senior, Jeff George a senior, Nick Patti a sophomore and Davis Beville a freshman so it’s possible they’ll want to bring in two.
