The college football dead period ends this Wednesday and the Pitt staff will be getting a visit from an out of town recruit.
2021 offensive lineman Greyson Brockriede (6’3″, 290) from Red Bank Catholic H.S. in Rumson, New Jersey tells Pittsburgh Sports Now that he’ll be in town for an unofficial visit. Brockriede arranged the visit after getting in touch with Pat Narduzzi.
“It’s actually been very recent as far as me talking with Pitt,” Brockriede told Pittsburgh Sports Now. “I was actually supposed to go on a football related trip in that area but that got canceled. However, I decided still to contact Pitt and see if I could get a visit or anything and they were very open to bring me in.”
“My parents and I were able to work out a day with him that works for them and that the staff would be there to do it.”
Brockriede is entering his junior season and tells PSN that, while he’s looking for his first offer, he’s been hearing from and talking with schools such as Boston College, Rutgers, Virginia Tech, Mississippi State and North Carolina.
“I’m excited to get the season started,” said Brockriede. “I believe one of my biggest strengths is my pass blocking. I’ve gone to a lot of camps to work on that and make sure my pass blocking is good. This coming season, I’m going to be working hard on improving my run blocking.”
The New Jersey native is looking forward to his visit on Wednesday and hopes that this is the start of a developing relationship with the Panthers.
“I’m very interested in the program and actually have a buddy that plays there (Carter Warren). I really like the ACC as a conference and that Pitt’s size of lineman are my size. I’m really looking at schools that I believe I could do well at. The Pitt program is one that has been grabbing me for a bit. I can’t really tell you exactly what has been me so interested in them but I always would check them out to see what and how they’re doing. Plus, Coach Narduzzi is a great guy.”
