Pitt Loses Out on Louisiana Tight End Rhett Guidry

Pitt Loses Out on Louisiana Tight End Rhett Guidry

Tight end Rhett Guidry was presented with an interesting decision last week when in-state school Louisiana-Lafayette offered him with the chance to join their 2020 team instead of attending year of prep school at Palmetto Prep.

Prior to receiving that opportunity, Guidry had been talking seriously with Pitt and told PSN that they were his leader but that the opportunity from Louisiana-Lafayette was “weighing on my mind.”

That opportunity to play college football this season and to do it close to home won out because last night, Guidry (6’5″, 225) decided to sign with Louisiana-Lafayette for the 2020 season.

After making his decision, Guidry told PSN that “this just came together very quickly.”

This news is yet another blow to Pitt’s efforts of landing a high school tight end. The Panthers have recruited 2021 players such as Fenando Garza (Texas A&M), Lake McRee (USC), Gunnar Greenwald (South Florida), CJ Dippre (Maryland) and Nathan Boerboom (Central Florida) but were not successful.

With Guidry’s name crossed off the board, the reality is that are few options left that currently hold on offer from Pitt.

PITT’S 2021 TIGHT END OPTIONS

Bennett Pitcher (Deerfield, Massachusetts)
Mitchell Evans (Wadsworth, Ohio)
River Helms (Lester, Alabama)
Jasper Lott (Argyle, Texas)

Helms received an offer from Pitt the same day as Guidry and has had his recruitment increase a lot in the last couple weeks receiving offers from Florida State, Louisville, Georgia and Oklahoma State.

Pitt surely wants to add a tight end to their Class of 2021, but where will they get one from?

This has to be an indictment on Tim Salem. He’s the tight end coach and supposed recruiting guru. He will have a pretty empty room in 2021.
The tight ends the last 2 years stunk out loud and they can’t recruit any. They are forced to go juco and grad transfer route. How long can this guy keep his job?

2 years? You could make a case for 5-6 years.
