Pitt football doesn’t have a history of trying to recruit the state of South Carolina until they got two players from the state in Davis Beville and Nate Temple.
It looks like they’re getting to get involved with another South Carolina standout as they’ve extended an offer to sophomore wide receiver Ahmari Huggins.
Huggins (Dillon High School) got the news from Chris Beatty that he’d earned his second Power Five offer (Virginia Tech).
“The offer kind of surprised me and really came out of nowhere,” Huggins told Pittsburgh Sports Now. “The head coach started following me on Twitter and then right after that, the wide receivers coach started following me. Then after that, I got a message that the coaches loved my film and wanted to know how I felt about Pittsburgh and I received an offer. Getting an offer from Pitt is big.”
“I watched Pitt in the ACC Championship game against Clemson and that was big. Also, I know that Pitt plays in Heinz Field with the Steelers.”
Huggins tells me that his biggest strengths on the field are his speed, the way in which he runs precise routes and his ability to get separation from the defensive backs.
Despite being only a sophomore, Huggins says that he’s really excited that schools are contacting him so early and that his recruiting process is already underway. In fact, he’s been invited up to watch a Pitt spring practice and is just waiting for a specific date from the Pitt coaching staff.
