Archie Collins 2019 secondary is loaded with talent and more is on the way in their Class of 2020.
One of Pitt’s top incoming defensive backs is 3-star cornerback Tee Denson (6’1”, 175) from Atlanta, Georgia. Yesterday, Collins was in Georgia and stopped by Cedar Grove High School to check in on his future player.
Denson is one of three players from Georgia that Pat Narduzzi has gotten a commitment from for his Class of 2020.
”Coach Collins came to see me during school today,” Denson told Pittsburgh Sports Now. “He asked me how the season is going, if I’m healthy and when I plan on coming up. He then came out and watched practice for a while but then had to get to the airport for his flight.”
”I believe this season I’m stepping up and improving as a team leader. I’m not a real vocal leader but I’m making sure I do my part so that I’m someone that the younger players can learn from and look up to and hopefully follow I’m my footsteps.”
Denson was part of the wave of players that committed to Pitt during their official visits in June and he tells me it was nice to see and be able to talk to Collins in person.
”It’s good that Coach Duzz kept his word from back when I committed that he would shutdown their recruiting of cornerbacks if I committed,” said Denson. “It’s really nice that they kept their word. Coach Collins told me again that I’m one of their top guys. They kept their word to me and I’m going to do the same with them.”
Pitt’s defense is developing into one of the top units in the country and Denson can’t wait to be apart of it.
”I’ve watched everyone of their games aside from the Delaware game. The defense appears to be their spark. I feel like people are sleeping on Pitt and they’ve shown that they can play with any team in the country. It makes me feel so good that one day I’m going to be a part of that.”
