Andrew Wilson-Lamp was one of the many recruits on campus Saturday for Pitt’s Junior Day.
The Class of 2021 three-star athlete is from Washington High School in Massillon, Ohio and holds offers from Pitt, West Virginia, Duke, Iowa State, Kentucky, West Virginia, Toledo, Akron and Kent State.
Wilson-Lamp (6-foot-3, 175 pounds) told Pittsburgh Sports Now that he’s being recruited by schools for both wide receiver and defensive back. His future is likely on the offensive side of the ball because of his speed, physicality off the line and ability to go up and make combative catches. However, programs such as Penn State, Wisconsin, Rutgers and Kentucky are recruiting him as a cornerback.
Regardless of his position, Pat Narduzzi and company were glad to get Wilson-Lamp in for an unofficial visit.
“What really stood out to me about the visit was when they took us to the basketball game, it just seemed that everyone there was so into it,” said Wilson-Lamp. “That just tells me how passionate Pitt fans are for their sports and it was crazy to see how hyped everyone was.”
Following the game, Wilson-Lamp and other recruits went over to Pitt’s South Side facility where he had a chance to spend some quality time with his lead recruiter Archie Collins.
“He was just telling me whatever position I decide to play, I’ll be good at it,” Wilson-Lamp said. “He asked me whether I preferred to play defensive back or receiver and we talked more about that. My thought on that is, whatever position can get me on the field earlier I’ll play. I’ll never tell a never that I want or have to play a certain position. Wherever I decide to go and where the coach wants me to play, I’m ok with it.”

“As far as my strengths at receiver, I’m quick, I know how to get open, I make tough catches and usually when I get pressed it doesn’t last very long because I use my feet as an advantage,” Wilson-Lamp said.
Wilson-Lamp said his recruitment is wide open, but made it a priority to come visit for Pitt’s junior day.
“I’ve always liked them (Pitt), but I’ve never had a chance to visit, so when I got the chance, I was super eager to do so and made it a priority,” said Wilson-Lamp.
Now that the dead period in recruiting is over with, Wilson-Lamp’s recruitment is sure to pick up. Although these schools haven’t offered yet, he’s starting to hear from Wisconsin, Rutgers and Penn State.
