Elliot Donald, Dorien Ford, Nahki Johnson on Committing to Pitt Together



PITTSBURGH — The centerpiece of Pitt’s strong 2021 recruiting class was the team’s three highly touted local defensive linemen, and so it was fitting that longtime friends Elliot Donald, Dorien Ford and Nahki Johnson got together as they officially signed their National Letters of Intent and joined the Pitt football program on Wednesday.

Donald, a defensive tackle from Central Catholic, Ford, a defensive tackle from Baldwin, and Johnson, a defensive end from West Mifflin, were three of the top five players in the WPIAL in the class and the top three defensive linemen in the area, and although they all had many offers, they eventually all decided to choose Pitt.

Alan Saunders of Pittsburgh Sports Now caught up with the trio after they made their college decision official:
