Yesterday the University of Pittsburgh finished one of their three summer recruitment football camps. Several players came to participate and show their skills with a chance of either earning an offer from a Division 1 school or further impressing the programs.
A handful of these players made the trip over from The Playmakers Academy out of New York, impressing the likes of Tim Salem and company.
“They all did a really good job competing. That is one thing that I would say is that the group that we brought there they are a competitive group because of where they are at in high school” said K.J. Stroud, head football coach at Playmakers Academy.
Playmakers Academy is a receiver program run by former NFL’er Stroud to develop the fundamentals of the receiving position. Five players on Pitt’s current roster are from the New York area including wide receiver Taysir Mack who came from Playmakers Academy.
“Tim Salem does an excellent job of recruiting from New York City and the relationship between Pittsburgh and New York City is really growing,” said Stroud.

Sean Wilson is this year’s top recruit from Playmaker’s Academy receiving offers from top schools including Pitt, Miami, Oregon, Kentucky, Umass, Arizona State, Syracuse, Tennesse, Virginia, and Penn State.
“They are very high on a few of my guys currently. Shawn Wilson (2022), Jaylin Ballew (2024), and Catrell White (2023). I honestly think down the line that they will all receive Pittsburgh offers.”
These players will receive no shortage of options as division one football recruitment is in full swing with camps opening up all across the country.
