The first official visit weekend for the Pitt football program is wrapping up and by all accounts, it was a huge success.
At this point, no Pat Signals have been issued but that only seems to be a matter of time. The initial reaction we’re getting is that a majority if not all of the players want to at least take another official visit or two.
One of the nine players that officially visited the Pitt program was three-star offensive lineman Brian Parker from St. Xavier High School in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Pittsburgh Sports Now spoke to Parker following the completion of his first official visit and got his thoughts on Pitt and what stood out to him.
“I had a great visit this weekend,” said Parker. “I really loved the people at Pitt they just seem like great guys. The brotherhood they had really stuck out and reminded me of St. Xavier and that’s something I want.
”Because every school has great facilities, now it’s just about meeting the people. Another thing that stood out to me is Pitt being next to the Steelers, that’s really cool. How nice the city and campus looked caught me off guard. The architecture and green spaces were both really cool.”
After being forced to communicate with the Pitt staff over the computer and phone for the last year, Parker was thankful to finally get a chance to meet his chief recruiters, Randy Bates and Dave Borbely in-person.
“Meeting the coaches in person was awesome,” said Parker. “Coach Bates and Borbely are great. I also really liked Coach Narduzzi and his visions for the program.”
Parker told PSN that while he wasn’t ready to make a decision today, Pitt sits in a good place with this talented lineman.
“I was very impressed by Pitt and it is on the top of my list. And after I complete a few other visits, I will be able to make my final decision.”
