Pitt has extended an offer to Class of 2021 Beaver Falls running back and linebacker Josh Hough, he announced on Twitter on Thursday.
Hough, a 6-foot-1, 248-pound three-star prospect, add Pitt to his already list of impressive offers that have all come since the end of his season.
Hough already held offers from Akron, Ball State, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Central Michigan, Coastal Carolina, Eastern Michigan, Kent State, Kentucky, UMass, Syracuse and Toledo.
He’s the eighth member of the WPIAL Class of 2021 to receive a Pitt offer, following Derrick Davis (Gateway), Khalil Dinkins (North Allegheny), Elliot Donald (Central Catholic), Dorian Ford (Baldwin), Stephon Hall (Central Valley), Nahki Johnson (West Mifflin) and Donovan McMillon (Peters Township). Johnson has already committed to Pitt.
Pitt does not have a commitment at either linebacker in its 2021 class, which currently consists of Johnson, Philadelphia safety Javon McIntyre and Virginia running back Rodney Hammond. Pitt is scheduled to graduate one running back after the 2020 season, A.J. Davis, and two linebackers, Phil Campbell and Chase Pine.
As a running back, Hough had 135 carriers for 1,273 yards — a 9.4 yards per carry average — while sharing time in the Beaver Falls backfield with Shileak Livingston in 2019. He led the Tigers with 18 total touchdowns. Beaver Falls finished the 2019 season 8-3.
