All 105 is a Pittsburgh Sports Now series profiling each of the 105 members of Pitt’s 2021 training camp roster.
69 • Matt Metrosky, freshman offensive lineman
Last Year: The Panthers offered Metrosky as a preferred walk-on.
Stats: Metrosky stands 6-foot-1 and weighs 290 pounds. He played center in high school.
Camp outlook: Shortly after receiving his PWO offer in January, Metrosky divulged a conversation he had with Pitt O-line coach Dave Borbley. “Coach Borbs told me that he’s going to need a center in the next year or two depending on what kids do with graduation and that I could fill that role,” Metrosky said. Whether that was a motivational tactic by Borbley or if Metrosky is the heir apparent remains to be seen. With that conversation in mind, though, Metrosky has considerable upside compared to the average walk-on.
Projected role: Metrosky will sit for most of the season, though he could potentially see playing time in up to four games if the Panthers want to make the most of his redshirt year.
Accolades, highlights: Metrosky played high school football in the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League for the Greensburg Central Catholic Centurions. He also played tennis in high school, an unusual feat for a lineman.
