2022 Florida 3-Star OT Ja’Kavion Nonar Decommits from Pitt



Pitt football recruiting Class of 2022 is down to 12 commitments following the loss of an offensive lineman.

3-star offensive tackle Ja’Kavion Nonar (6-foot-7, 285 pounds) announced on Tuesday that he was opening up his recruitment and decommitting from Pitt. Nonar released this statement on Twitter.

“After long talks with my peers and a lot of prayer, I’m announcing that I’ll be de-committing from the University of Pittsburgh. This doesn’t mean that they are canceled out and I’d like to thank every coach at Pitt for the love they’ve shown. My recruitment is 100% open at this point. Let’s work. #respectmydecison.”

This news comes as no surprise and appeared to be just a matter of time before Nonar made the announcement. In the last couple of weeks, Nonar received offers from both Florida and Ole Miss and recently told Pittsburgh Sports Now that he planned on making more official visits during the season.

Credit Charlie Partridge and the Pitt recruiting staff for identifying the talent of Nonar early and getting him to make an official visit and eventually commit. However, as he took part in more prospect camps recently, other schools became aware of Nonar’s raw talent and what led Pitt to become the first Power Five program to extend him an offer. Nonar is still relatively new to the sport of football, as he only started playing it a couple of years ago.

While Nonar says Pitt is still a consideration, it’s likely going to be very hard to pry him away from the hometown school, Florida.

Pitt currently holds commitments from two offensive lineman (Ryan Baer and Isaiah Montgomery) so that position will become a point of emphasis moving forward.

Addition by subtraction with this one.

I understand the kids have to do what is best for themselves and their families. And all schools continue to pursue kids that are committed to other schools. They shouldn’t use the word committed then. I’m old school. Yes…things change. They should call it a “probability” that they are going to that school.

He’s not stupid, he knew his chances of playing immediately dropped when the 4-star OL left Ohio State to play at Pitt. I see football following the path forged men’s basketball where transfers play a bigger role than recruiting.
