Prior to their second weekend of hosting official visitors, Pitt hosted an interesting player from the state of Kentucky.

On Wednesday, 2022 3-star tight end Michael Hawkins (Somerset, Kentucky) made an unofficial visit to Pitt. During this trip, Hawkins had a private workout with Salem and toured the Panthers faculties and the campus.

At this point in recruitment, Hawkins (6-foot-5, 232-pounds) holds offers from Vanderbilt, Marshall and Army. Prior to this workout with Pitt, Hawkins conducted other ones this month at Florida and Louisville.

”I’ve hearing hearing from Coach Salem since late January,” Hawkins tells PSN. “We talked and he told me that he wanted to evaluate me in-person. This was the third one of these that I’ve done with different colleges and the first two I was nervous but this one I was more relaxed because of kind of knew what I was going to do.”

”When I got there, they took me on a tour of the facilities and then I did a private workout at the indoor facility. Afterwards, I got showered up and took a tour of the campus. I feel like I did well and the feedback that I got from the coaches was that I performed well and that they’re going to continue to recruit me through my senior season. They weren’t ready to offer but want to continue to recruit me and that the workout did nothing but help me.”

Hawkins describes himself as a “very traditional 50/50 tight end and I block as much as I catch. I’m not a tight end that splits out at all.”

This was Hawkins first ever trip to Pittsburgh and admits that he was surprised at how much he enjoyed Pittsburgh because he was unsure of “what a big city would be like.” He also mentioned that the facilities were top-notch.

This was the first of many upcoming visits for Hawkins was he’ll be making upcoming trips to Duke, North Carolina State, Indiana, LSU, Florida State, Purdue, Michigan and Marshall.
