Pitt BB Recruiting

Talented 2023 Combo Guard Jahnathan Lamothe Recaps Pitt Visit



On Friday, Pitt hosted two talented players for unofficial visits, one of which being Jahnathan Lamothe, an ultra-talented rising junior out of the DMV.

“The visit went great,” Lamothe told Pittsburgh Sports Now. “I talked to the coaching staff, got to see around the school, got to see the uniforms, and overall, I liked it. My favorite part was seeing the facilities, talking to Coach Capel, and everything, really. Everything went good for me. I liked it.”

Lamothe is a 6-foot-4, 185-pound combo guard out of Baltimore, Maryland. The St. Frances Academy star is ranked as the No. 36 player in the class of 2023 according to 247 Sports, and is one of the most physically-imposing players in the class.

“They want me to just be a combo guard, be on the ball and off the ball,” he said about the Pitt staff’s plans for him in the future. “I could score, play freely and fit into their system.”

Lamothe was offered by Pitt back on Sept. 9, during his sophomore season in which he blew up on the recruiting scene.

“It’s a really good relationship,” Lamothe said about his and Capel’s bond. “I feel like we’ve been good from the start and it’s just been good. He’s a nice guy. He understands me well. He had been at the highest levels and he is someone I can trust. So yeah, he’s a good guy. Yeah, I can see myself playing for him.”

Lamothe said that he is also being pursued hard by VCU, Virginia Tech, Rutgers and many more. Some of the other schools that he holds other offers from are Penn State, Creighton, TCU, and Seton Hall. While his interest is stemming from virtually all over the country, he did include that he would be interested in playing in the ACC.

“It’s a tough conference,” he said. “I would like competing with all of those schools, they’re tough.”

another top recruit capel loves to offer schalorships so it appears he can attract top 50 recruits to Pitt. Another recruit among top national recruits who will never be on the roster at Pitt. Looks good on paper until signing time then he’ll scramble to sign 2 and 3 star recruits to fill the roster. He has done this at every school he was H.C. Then after being fired go back to Duke as an assistant in 2023.
