Pat Narduzzi has amassed a considerable amount of talent in the 2020 recruiting class but a few holes remain. There’s still room in the class for an additional offensive lineman and an outstanding prospect will be visiting Pitt this weekend. Pitt will host Orlando (FL) Edgewater High School offensive center / guard David Anderton (6-foot-4 inches, 315 pounds) on an unofficial visit this weekend.
“I speak with Coach Salem about two to three times a week on the phone. He tells me what its like at Pitt and how I could fit in if I were to go there,” stated Anderton. “I’m flying up to Pittsburgh early Saturday and getting a tour of the facilities on Sunday.”
Anderton is down to three schools: Pitt, West Virginia and Virginia Tech. He’s started four years in high school and never missed a game due to injury. Pitt believes Anderton would be an exceptional center on the next level. He was ‘discovered’ at the satellite prospect camp Panthers’ coaching staff held in Georgia.
“On all my visits, I’m really trying to see how I feel. I’m asking myself I can see myself playing there four or five years and have my parents come and see me play,” said Anderton. “I’m hoping to set up my official visit to Pitt while I’m there this weekend.”
When asked about his strengths on the football field, he stated, “I’m a pretty good run blocker. I’m a very physical blocker. I’m great inside. I play with a lot of nasty as well. I like to make other lineman do what I want them to do.”
“I’m looking forward to see what Pitt has to offer.” If Anderson decides, “Pitt is it”, he would join Elyria (OH) Elyria Catholic HS’s Branson Taylor (6-foot-7 inches, 290 pounds) and Baltimore (MD) St. Frances’ Michael Statham (6-foot-7 inches, 350 pounds).
