Pitt is seeing immediate reaction from an athlete that they extended an offer to on Friday.
Panthers linebacker coach Ryan Manalac spoke on the phone and then offered a scholarship to 2022 3-star recruit Kyle Louis from East Orange Campus in East Orange, New Jersey. Louis (5’11”, 195 lbs.) is being recruited to Pitt as an athlete with the capability of playing multiple position. Pitt joins Maryland, Marshall, Penn State, UMass, Kent State, Buffalo and Temple as programs that have offered the New Jersey native.
On the same day he received the offer from Pitt, Louis then decided to set up an official visit to Pittsburgh, as he’ll be making his visit June 10-12.
Pittsburgh Sports Now caught up with Louis and got his reaction to not only his latest Power Five offer but his decision to make an official visit right away to Pitt.
“I spoke to Coach Manalac through a Zoom Meeting around 9,” Louis told Pittsburgh Sports Now. “We started off getting to know each other, then I talked about how I can be a good fit for the defense. I was expecting it to come earlier but they put a lot of thought into it and showed me a lot of love. I can see myself having a great future there.”
“As far as the official visit, me and Coach talked about the dead period being lifted and they offered me to come see the facility, so far I’ve just been doing virtual tours but I want to go see Heinz Field.”
