Pitt’s aggressive recruiting in the state of New York continued on Monday as they offered a big defensive lineman.
2020 defensive end Olasunkonmi Agunloye (6-foot-6, 250 pound) from Lindenhurst, New York received the offer from assistant coach Tim Salem.
“I kind of knew the offer was coming, it was just the fact the staff hadn’t seen me in person so thankfully I was able to impress them enough to finally offer me,” said Agunloye. “I know that Pitt is a great school especially with their history of how many players they’ve sent to the league. They have everything to make you into the best player you can be.”
What else does Agunloye know about Pitt?
”Of course playing in the ACC they have great competition and play an amazing schedule at a very high level,” he said. “I like how they are so close to the Steelers facilities so you are around NFL talent and are trained and treated like your already in the league, basically giving players an NFL experience.”
Agunloye says his strengths are his versatility on the defensive front. He believes that he can be put me anywhere and that he’s still contribute.
”Also, I have length that gives me a huge advantage on the field because not many people are 6-foot-6 with a 7-foot wingspan,” said Agunloye.
“As the summer approaches, I’m starting to gain interest from schools all over the country like UCLA, Arizona St, Nevada then I have more ACC interest from UNC, VA Tech and Big Ten interest from Penn State and Michigan.”
Agunloye says that he and his dad are trying to sit down and make a schedule for visits that could work for them to try and get around to many schools.
