After not landing a scholarship commitment from Michigan in six years, Pitt has their second commitment from the Motor City of the day on Sunday, as 2021 three-star offensive tackle Brandon Honorable (6-foot-6, 270 pounds) from Martin Luther High School in Detroit, Michigan became Pitt’s 12th commitment in its Class of 2021.
Honorable is the fourth offensive lineman to make a commitment to Pitt this year, joining Terrence Enos, Marco Fugar and Terrence Rankl.
“It feels real good to make it official where I’ll be going not only football wise but for my academics as well,” Honorable told Pittsburgh Sports Now. “Instead of wondering if it’ll be this school or that school, if feels good to make this long-term commitment.
”I first talked to Coach [Archie] Collins about my decision and he was so fired up and was like H2P. After I told Coach Collins, I called up Coach [Dave] Borbely and Coach [Pat] Narduzzi and they were also fired up and they can’t wait for me to get in the blue and yellow.”
Honorable ended up selecting Pitt over Tennessee, Maryland, Toledo and Eastern Michigan but also was offered by programs such as Cincinnati, Indiana, Iowa State, Michigan State, Minnesota, Purdue and Syracuse. Honorable’s final decision came down to a lot more than the Pitt football program.
”They really had a plan for me which included life after football,” said Honorable. “Since the beginning, Pitt has been with me from the beginning and a great academic plan. They also know the things that I need to work on right when I get there. Talking to Coach Narduzzi, Coach Borbely and Coach Collins, those are my guys.
”The thing with Coach Borbely is that he’s a really good guy. I feel like we have a real tight relationship and as my position, he’s going to get me stronger and better, especially since I’m able to play both tackle positions.”
This has been a big 24 hours for Pitt in terms of adding to their offensive line depth with the commits from grad transfer tackle Keldrick Wilson, 2021 three-star recruit Terrence Enos and now Honorable.
