Pitt FB Recruiting

Pitt Contacts former Aliquippa CB, Kentucky Transfer Marlin Devonshire

Pitt Contacts former Aliquippa CB, Kentucky Transfer Marlin Devonshire

After unsuccessfully doing it the first time, Pitt will indeed try and re-recruit former Aliquippa four-star cornerback Marlin Devonshire.

Pittsburgh Sports Now has learned that the Pitt coaching staff contacted and spoke with Devonshire on Tuesday, the first day Devonshire officially entered the NCAA transfer portal and was permitted to speak with coaches.

Devonshire and his father spoke on the phone with head coach Pat Narduzzi and secondary coach Archie Collins. PSN has been told the conversation went well, as the Pitt staff explained to Devonshire how they intended to use him in their system.

Pitt wasn’t the only program to contact the talented cornerback as he also received a call from Terry Smith and James Franklin from Penn State. Before the end of the evening, Devonshire is also expected to talk with West Virginia coaches

Expressing interest early is important because Devonshire is expected to make his decision before the end of the month. He plans on enrolling at his new school and start getting acclimated with the off-season conditioning program with his new team.

Devonshire will have four years of athletic eligibility remaining.

That’s a little harsh man. He was an 18 year old kid making a huge decision. I would love to see him as a Panther!

It’s not like Devonshire was committed to Pitt and flipped late.

If there’s mutual interest, Pitt should absolutely try to find a way to make it work. Pitt isn’t exactly in a position to be brushing off players that are 2 years removed from a 4-star rating, including an offer from Ohio St.

Gut feeling is that he’s heading to Morgantown.

The only feeling you get from your gut is indigestion.
