Pitt has their eyes on an elite 2020 tight end that just became available.
Earlier this week, PSN was the first to report on Tim Salem reaching out to Brandon Frazier and last night the Panthers let him they they were extending him an offer.
Frazier (6’7”, 250) is from McKinney, Texas and just de-committed from Arkansas after they fired head coach Chad Morris on Sunday.
This will be a player in demand as Frazier also picked up an offer from USC this morning. Prior to committing to Arkansas, Frazier held offers from Alabama, LSU, Auburn, Baylor, Minnesota, Nebraska, Utah, Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, Iowa State and Kansas State.
After receiving the offer from Pitt Wednesday night, PSN caught up with Frazier to get his thoughts on Pitt and find out what’s next for him.
“When Pitt offered me, they pointed out my size, speed and strength for my position which stood out from other players,” said Frazier. “Coach Salem, who offered me, simply said that I was a beast on the field and that I wasn’t afraid to get my hands dirty in the blocking game.”

”They were the first team to reach out to me after what happened with Arkansas and it just showed that they cared for me and they want me to play for them. That was definitely a good feeling to get that offer.”
Now that he’s a free agent, Frazier plans on researching a number of the schools that are contacting him including Pitt.
“I haven’t really watched Pitt a lot this season, but I’ve heard they have a need for a tight end. I’m still building relationships with their coaches and will see where that takes us and if it’s a good fit than it’s a good fit.”
As far as upcoming visits, Frazier tells me that he and his family have decided to wait until the end of his high school season so that he can focus on his team before they decide where he’ll make trips to.
