Been a PITT fan for 60 years, but if you can’t recruit in your home state you can’t recruit. Local talent in the past made them a power back in the DAY! You definitely have to recruit out of state (mostly down south) but if you can’t recruit in state you will always be mediocre at best.SAD to see we have not done well for 2022

Getting beat out by Rutgers and South Carolina? I know that some these players might not meet Pitt’s needs but PSU is running roughshod over the Panthers with this particular class. Surely Pitt can pull better talent than this.

I think you are being too tough on Narduzzi. He just needs more time. Maybe in 5 more years he may actually be able to recruit a top 10 Pa. recruit!!. He does get points for offering early. He just can’t seem to close. I guess are not impressed with all those empty yellow seats.
