The Class of 2019 Recruiting Class is in the rear-view mirror and the focus is now on the Class of 2020.
The Pitt staff has already extended offers to over approximately 180 juniors from many different states. Instead of focusing on just one player, I thought it would be interesting to take a look at a few different categories concerning the players that have already heard from Pitt.
Which position has received the most offers? What part of the country is Pitt recruiting hardest? How many 4-star players has Pitt offered so far?
Let’s start off with a breakdown of offers made to positions. It doesn’t come as a surprise that the top two offered positions to this point have been defensive end and wide receivers.
Next, the area that most fans look to when evaluating a player and that’s his star ranking. As of Feb. 8, here’s the breakdown on individual star rankings.
Where is the staff spending the most time recruiting and offering players? As it’s been for the last couple of seasons, the state of Florida has topped this list but number two on this list might surprise you. It’s also evident that the staff has a focus on Maryland and Virginia.
Finally, as all college programs do, each assistant coach recruits a certain territory. From time to time, a coach might go into a different state but for the most part they recruit the same state and regions on a yearly basis.
