Pitt kicked off what is expected to be a busy weekend of recruiting news on Saturday, when Hampton graduate transfer offensive tackle Keldrick Wilson chose the Panthers, securing Pitt’s 85th and final scholarship for the 2020 season.
Sunday, four more players that Pitt is a finalist for — all in the Class of 2021 — will be making their college decisions.
Three-star Georgia linebacker Preston Lavant is expected to make his decision around noon, picking between Pitt, Louisville and Minnesota. Lavant is a 6-foot-2, 200-pound outside linebacker from Crisp County High School in Cordele, Georgia that also had Power Five offers from Nebraska and West Virginia before narrowing his list.
At 12:25, Pennsylvania linebacker and tight end C.J. Dippre will make his announcement. Dippre (6-foot-5, 245 pounds) is from Jermyn, Pa., which is just northeast of Scranton, and plays for Lakeland High School. He’s deciding between finalists Boston College, Kentucky, Maryland, Pitt, Rutgers, Syracuse and Virginia.
At 2 p.m., the largest prize of the day will be making his decision: three-star Michigan offensive lineman Terrence Enos. Enos is a 6-foot-5, 317-pound bruiser that could project to play either tackle or guard at Pitt. A three-star prospect out of Cass Tech in Detroit, Enos has a strong offer list. He’s narrowed his list to Arkansas, Iowa State, LSU, Pitt, Purdue, Vanderbilt and West Virginia.
At 3 p.m., another lineman from The Mitten will make his choice. Three-star tackle Brandon Honorable from Martin Luther King High School in Detroit will make his announcement, selecting between Eastern Michigan, Maryland, Pitt, Tennessee and Toledo.
Pitt already has nine players in its Class of 2021, meaning that Pitt could be more than halfway home before the day is done.
