Mann (6’6″, 265) is from The Bolles School in Jacksonville, Florida and becomes the third offensive lineman this year for Pitt, joining 3-star OT Isaiah Montgomery (Virginia Beach, Virginia) and 3-star OT Ja’Kavion Nonar (Belle Glade, Florida). In the end, Mann selected Pitt over Louisville, along with other offers from Wake Forest, Virginia Tech, Kansas, Liberty, Indiana and Florida International.
This relationship between Mann and Pitt came together fairly quick as he officially received an offer in late June. Following that offer, Mann immediately traveled to Pittsburgh for an official visit on June 22.
“Pittsburgh was really a great place to visit and I really enjoyed it,” Mann told Pittsburgh Sports Now. “The coaches were great, the players were great, I really had a good time. Coach Duzz was great and we had a really good talk and the players were cool to hang out with. Another thing I like was that there is so much to do in Pittsburgh, you can pretty much do anything.”
His chief recruiters at Pitt have been Tim Salem (area recruiter) and Dave Borbely.
With a limited number of scholarship availabilities for their Class of 2022, this will likely be the last offensive lineman that Pitt takes this season. As things currently stand, Pitt will likely only be adding 4 players at the most.
Mann is the 4th player from Florida in Pitt’s current recruiting class (Camden Brown/Ft. Lauderdale, Florida), Ja’Kavion Nonar (Belle Glade, Florida) and Jordaan Bailey (Tampa, Florida) and the 10th in their last three recruiting classes.
