Pitt has continued their trend of extending an opportunity to WPIAL players to join their program as preferred walk-ons by doing so with a local Class of 2021 tight end.
Norwin three-star tight end Tanner Krevokuch (6-foot-4, 220 pounds) received that news from Tim Salem that if he chooses to, he can join the team as a walk-on. At this point, Krevokuch’s lone Division I scholarship offer is from Central Michigan, which he received last September.
“I sent Coach Salem my highlights from this year and he called me right after and asked me how my recruiting was going and wanted me to know that I had a walk-on spot at Pitt to play tight end,” Krevokuch said. “I’ve been in contact with Coach Salem for a while now and I went to a Pitt camp last year, obviously I couldn’t go this year so I’ve been trying to send him as much stuff as I can.”
Krevokuch is obviously looking to earn more scholarships from other programs but will also be considering this opportunity from his hometown school.
“It’s definitely a place that I will consider. It’s close to home and I can pay in-state and is something that I will definitely put some good thought towards,” said Krevokuch. “Coach Salem was very honest with me and said if something else comes up where financially I have a better opportunity, he would by all means understand and would support me.”
Krevokuch describes himself as tight end that can spread out wide and run good routes like a flex receiver but can also come into the line of scrimmage to run and pass block effectively.

“I believe I’ve done all of that this year for my team at Norwin but there’s always room for improvement. This offseason, I worked a lot on my route-running to improve on that in order to get myself open or to help my teammates get open by having a safety or linebacker have to come double me.”
In their Class of 2020, Pitt was able to bring in DB Gusty Sunseri (Central Catholic), DB Jehvonn Lewis (Bethel Park), RB Angelo Priore (Baldwin) and OL Matthew Altsman (Central Catholic) as PWO players.
