Pitt Still in Contention for Ohio 3-Star Tight End Mitchell Evans



Mitchell Evans is one of the fastest rising tight end prospects on the east coast, picking up recent offers from Florida State and Notre Dame.

Evans decided on Saturday to reduce his long list of offers down to a top 10 and it included the Pitt Panthers. Other finalists included, Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, Florida State, Virginia, Cincinnati, Indiana, Iowa State, Louisville and Michigan State.

The heavy interest that Evans is receiving speaks to his talent level and potential considering he was bothered by injuries during his junior season, despite which he still caught 19 passes for 306 yards and 7 touchdowns.

Evans (6’7″, 240) is a 3-star recruit from Wadsworth, Ohio and someone that the Pitt staff has been recruiting since last year. Despite the shutdown of visits for high school athletes, Evans was able to make a visit on his own with his family to Pittsburgh back in May.

Although they received a commitment last week from Utah 3-star tight end Trey Andersen, Pitt wants to add to their future tight end depth chart. Following this season, Lucas Krull will graduate and incoming junior college signee Daniel Moraga will only be here for two seasons. After that, the only tight end with multiple years of eligibility would be Kyi Wright, who has the athletic ability to play multiple positions.

No word from Evans on any future timeline for narrowing that list down even further or making a decision.
