Following the flurry of commitments in the month of June, coupled with the current dead period in college football recruiting, things have been quiet in regards to Pat Narduzzi’s 2020 recruiting class.
The class currently stands at 16 commitments, with approximately a handful of commitments still to come.
The position that will most likely get the most attention is at offensive line where the Panthers have only added one player (Michael Statham, Baltimore, Maryland).
When college recruiting starts back up next week, a name to keep an eye on is Cayden Baker.
Baker (6-foot-7, 275 pounds) is a three-star offensive tackle from Fort Myers, Florida. Along with Pitt, Baker has been offered by Boston College, Central Florida, Cincinnati, Indiana, Louisville, Miami, North Carolina, Purdue, South Florida and Syracuse.
Pittsburgh Sports Now caught up with Baker this morning to get an update on where things stand with him and Pitt. This kind of got lost in the middle of all the official visitors Pitt had in June but Baker did make an unofficial visit on June 18 with his mother.
“While I was at Pitt, my mom and I loved it,” Baker told Pittsburgh Sports Now. “The atmosphere was amazing and it was a feeling of a very professional approach to the game. Pitt is very high on my list and I still talk to them almost daily.”
“Coach [Dave] Borbely, Coach [Rob] Harley and Coach Narduzzi all text or write me letters and say that I’m very high for them and that they need me to be a Panther.”
Baker tells PSN that he doesn’t have any upcoming visits scheduled and currently doesn’t have any timeline to make a commitment.
