Rob Harley is in Florida recruiting and has spotted a player that he’d like to add to his depth chart.
Class of 2021 inside linebacker Jake Chaney (6 foot, 215 pounds) from Lehigh Acres, Florida received the call that his latest offer is from Pitt. Chaney also holds offers from Wisconsin, Iowa State, Indiana, Florida International and Cincinnati.
”Coach Harley has been messaging me on Twitter and then they came down to see me,” Chaney told Pittsburgh Sports Now. “Then today I talked to Coach Harley on the phone and he told me that I had an offer.
”He told me that he likes how physical I am at the point of contact, how I move on the field and just overall likes my film and wanted to offer.”
That was Harley’s opinion of him, we asked Chaney to give PSN us a self-evaluation and the current strengths of his game that is leading to this Power Five interest.

“I’m an aggressive film watcher and know our defensive scheme and know what we need to do and where I need to be to stop the opposing offense,” said Chaney. “I’m a great tackler and don’t miss many and I’m always where I need to be on the field.”
With this latest offer, Chaney said that he will indeed be making a spring time visit to Pittsburgh and was having a current member of the team recruiting him prior to him getting the offer.
“This a real big offer for me and now that I have the offer, they’re going to be one of my top schools. I know and played Pop Warner football with Shocky Jacques-Louis so we’re friends and he’s been telling me about Pitt and how great the program is,” said Chaney.

“All of this is just a dream come true for me. As a freshman, I never thought that I was going to be noticed like this or that I was going to become a Divison One player like I am right now. It’s sort of a surprise but really a great accomplishment for me. But I know that I still have to work to put in to get better. I’m going to stay humble and really keep on grinding.”
