Pitt was successful in getting three-star cornerback Noah Biglow to flip from Iowa State and now are trying to do the same with another player.
2021 3-star wide receiver/defensive back Keithron Lee (5-foot-11, 175 pounds) made a commitment to UT-San Antonio at the end of April but last night, Lee received an offer from Randy Bates and Pitt. This was big for Lee because it’s his first Power 5 offer.
”I talked to Coach Bates and he gave me the news,” Lee said to Pittsburgh Sports Now. He told me that they’re recruiting me as an athlete and when he told me I was shocked because that’s a major Power 5 offer. I’m committed to UTSA so I thought was pretty special that they still recognized my talents.
”I play both offense and defense in high school and believe that I can really play anywhere. As a receiver, I’m definitely a deep threat. Our offense is a big play offense so I’m used to get down the field and I’m also used in the slot, where I can use my speed as a mismatch against most defenses. Same thing on defense, as I use my speed. I feel like if you play receiver, that helps you as a cornerback because it helps you anticipate what’s coming. On defense, I believe one of my strengths is watching a lot of film which puts me in the position to make a lot of plays.”
Although he can play both positions, Lee said that he believes his best position in college would be as a wide receiver.
Lee admits that the phone call and news from Pitt will make him reevaluate things and will give Pitt serious consideration.
”When I committed to UTSA, I wanted to make that decision early so that I secured a spot but this offer from Pitt changes everything,” said Lee.
”Not being able to make visits anytime soon won’t impact anything and I wouldn’t have to necessarily visit first if I’d wanted to possibly commit to Pitt. Coach Bates said that he plans on staying in touch and I plan on building a great relationship with Pitt.”
