Big news could be coming for the Pitt football program this weekend.
On the final weekend before December National Signing Day, Pitt has been able to get 4-star Florida State quarterback transfer Chubba Purdy to make an official visit.
Purdy confirmed that to PSN as he was driving to the airport from his home in Arizona. Purdy is making the visit with his mother and father.
Although it’s not crucial, it’s definitely a plus for Pitt to get Purdy to visit Pittsburgh before he makes his decision. After this weekend, on-campus visits are not permitted again until mid-January. It’s reasonable to assume that Purdy wants to make a decision before then so he can officially join his new team and start to get acclimated.
Despite losing star quarterback Kenny Pickett, Pitt will return a strong nucleus next season and Pat Narduzzi is in a win now mode and likely senses the opportunity to contend for another ACC Title.
The question is does he believe the potential of Purdy gives his team the best opportunity to do that?
Wherever this talented quarterback ends up, he’ll have four seasons of athletic eligibility remaining. If he ends up at Pitt, that will no doubt create roster turnover on the quarterback depth chart.
As things currently stand, that depth chart consists of Nick Patti, Davis Beville, Joey Yellen and Nate Yarnell.
