Michigan four-star defensive back Enzo Jennings was the headliner of Pitt’s impressive group of official visitors over the weekend.
Jennings is a national recruit that holds offers from major programs such as Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, Nebraska, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, Tennessee, and West Virginia.
A big reason Pitt was able to get Jennings in for an official visit is the long-standing relationship he shares with defensive backs coach and Michigan native Archie Collins. This morning, Pittsburgh Sports Now was able to talk with Jennings to get his reaction to his first extensive visit to Pittsburgh.
“I liked how the Steelers are right next door to Pitt, I liked that a lot,” said Jennings. “I had a really good time hanging out with the players on the team. My host for the visit was Damar Hamlin, who was really cool. He actually reminded me of myself a lot.
“I also had a good talk with Coach Narduzzi, which was my first time really sitting down and having a conversation with him. I really like him a lot. During our talk, he was telling me about making the right decision and to really pay attention to things on my official visits. After the visits, write down the positives and negatives because in the end, you want to make the right choice and don’t want to end up de-committing from anywhere. He told me not to rush my decision and make the right choice in the end.”
Did Jennings leave his official visit to Pitt surprised by anything he saw or heard?
“Yeah, the city of Pittsburgh. The South Side and the city of Pittsburgh was crazy. All the buildings and just the environment was so nice.”
This was Jennings second official visit after having previously visited Kentucky. This weekend, he’ll be heading to State College to officially visit Penn State. Where does Pitt stand with him and did he see enough to give them serious consideration in the end?
“I feel like Pitt moved up a lot on my list. I was there before, I think in ninth grade, but this experience was so great and I enjoyed myself a lot and had a great time. Pitt definitely moved up on my list.”
