Pitt will be getting a visit from a player that’s high on their running back recruiting board.
2022 3-star running back Kaleb Johnson (Hamilton, Ohio) tells Pittsburgh Sports Now that he will make an official visit to Pitt sometime in June. At this point, Johnson and the Pitt staff have not yet determined the date for his visit.
Johnson (six-foot-one, 210-pounds) received his offer from Pitt back in March of 2020 and holds others from Michigan State, Iowa, Iowa State, California, Cincinnati and bunch of MAC programs. Most people in the recruiting industry believe that Johnson’s decision could very well come down to a battle of Pitt versus Michigan State.
The duo of Andre Powell and area recruiter Randy Bates have led the recruitment of Johnson.
Johnson has the size that Pitt currently lacks in their current running back room and has a skillset similar to former Panther greats James Conner and Qadree Ollison in that he runs with power, can be a receiver out of the backfield and can pass block.
