Pitt hosted over 200 high school players at their UPMC South Side Complex for the first of a month long’s worth of prospect camps.
Some of the players participating aren’t Power Five prospects but we’re looking to catch the eye of other coaches that were in attendance.
There were also players that hold Power Five offers or could be close to earning that offer depending on how they performed and how they were evaluated by Pat Narduzzi and his staff.
Sophomore defensive back Bryon Threats (Dublin, Ohio) worked out yesterday and is a player the Panthers have their eyes on.
“Earlier this year, I went to Pittsburgh and visited during their Spring Game,” said Threats. “Afterwards, I talked to some of their coaches and some of the players, whom I’ve since gotten close with. At that point, the coaches invited me to this camp so that they could see me workout in person.”
Threats accepted the invite and gave us this critique of his performance on Saturday.
“I feel like I performed pretty well. I talked a lot afterwards with coaches from not only Pitt but coaches from other programs that were there. I feel like I learned a lot from the camp. I worked a lot on technique and coverages for the position I play.”
”Now that I’m entering my junior season, all this work and advice I get is important. They told me that your work on the field is important but so is my work in the classroom. That’s another way for me to get recruited.”
Threats says that some of his biggest strengths are his leadership skills and his physicality. The one thing he’s going to try and work on over the next two years is his speed.
Currently, he holds offers from Georgia Tech, Ohio U and Akron and would love to get an offer from Pitt.
”An offer one day from Pitt would be great,” said Threats. “I feel like I would fit in well with their program with my physicality and the way I move on the field. Plus, some of my family lives in the Pittsburgh area. An offer from Pitt would be big.”
