Pitt will be hosting two talented sophomores from Ohio tomorrow as they wrap up their 2019 home schedule with a game against Boston College.
We alerted our PSN Die-Hard members yesterday that 2020 athlete Kaden Saunders (5’10, 165) from Westerville, Ohio will make an unofficial visit. Saunders currently holds offers from Pitt, Penn State, Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, Indiana, Purdue and West Virginia.
This morning, we learned that sophomore quarterback Jeffery Beverly (6’5”, 205) from Columbus, Ohio will also be at Heinz Field for an unofficial visit so we caught up with him to learn more about him and his recruitment.
”I’ve been hearing from Pitt since my freshman year,” Beverly told PSN. “This will be the first time that I’ve taken a visit there. Their coaches came in to my school last week to talk to my coaches and wanted me to make a visit. Coach Bates has been my recruiter, I haven’t been able to talk to him but I’m looking forward to doing so this weekend.”
”I’m looking forward to the atmosphere this weekend at Pitt and they have a really good football team that I’m looking forward to watching. I hear that they have a good offensive system and I’m looking forward to seeing it and if I like it.”
Beverly is waiting on his first offer but is hearing from plenty of Power Five programs like Ohio State, Boston College, West Virginia, Arizona State and Michigan State.
“All this really motivates me and makes me want to work harder,” said Beverly. “Getting to go to these colleges also shows me how hard I need to work to get there which is also a motivator for me because I really want to make it there (Power Five program).
“I’m more of a pocket passer but once I see the pocket closing, I can get our and run. Right now, I run a 4.7 so I actually have a chance to be a dual-threat or a pocket passer.”
