The Pitt Panthers football staff had already offered over 260 players in the Class of 2022 and that number has gone up this week, especially after offering a number of new prospects on Friday.
The offers that we’ve learned about from yesterday are interesting for a couple of different reasons: 1) many of them were from new wide receivers coach Brennan Marion 2) the offers went to players in states that Pitt doesn’t traditionally recruit.
Here is a recap of the players that we know received offers from Pitt on Friday:
*Jake Pope: 2022 4-star athlete (6-foot-1, 190) from Buford High School in Buford, Georgia. Pope has a long list of offers from programs like Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Ohio State and USC. PSN hasn’t confirmed this yet but assuming Pope received the offer from Archie Collins.

“I was blessed to hear what he told me. Coach told me that he loved everything about me and that he knew me from my freshman season and stuck with me,” Lee told Pittsburgh Sports Now. “My biggest strengths are playing man and have very good eyes. Coach also said that he liked that I play with high IQ and that I’m very physically gifted. The thing that I know about Pitt is their defense. I love their defense, they play very fast and very physical. They have fun while on the field, too.”
