With no game this week, the Pitt football coaches are spread out across the country recruiting and an interesting offer was extended this morning.
The Panthers currently don’t have a commitment from a quarterback in this year’s class but they’re trying to change that.
Offensive coordinator Mark Whipple was in Georgia this morning and extended an offer to 3-star quarterback Tate Rodemaker (6’3″, 185) from Valdosta High School in Valdosta, Georgia. This is an intriguing offer because Rodemaker is currently committed to Charlie Strong and South Florida.
Rodemaker, who’s described as a Pro-Style quarterback has 20+ D-1 offers and a Power Five offer from Boston College.

Things have been relatively quiet in terms of Pitt recruiting a quarterback for 2020 and with Kenny Pickett, Nick Patti and Davis Beville all returning next year, it wasn’t known whether Pat Narduzzi would look to add one this year.
With the news of the offer today to Rodemaker, it looks like they’ll at least attempt to add one.
Pittsburgh Sports Now is attempting to interview Rodemaker and get his thoughts on the offer from Pitt and his talk with Whipple.
Pitt currently holds 2020 commitments from three players from Georgia: 3-star wide receiver Jaylon Barden, 3-star cornerback Tee Denson and 3-star cornerback Hunter Sellers.
