2022 Chartiers Valley WR/S Abe Ibrahim Commits to Pitt as Preferred Walk-On



It’s Valentine’s Day Night, but that hasn’t stopped the 2022 recruiting cycle from coming to a halt, and love is in the air between Pitt and 2022 recruit Abe Ibrahim.

Ibrahim, a 6-foot-2, 200-pound wide receiver/safety from Chartiers Valley High School in Bridgeville, Pennsylvania, committed to Pitt Monday night via Twitter as a preferred walk-on over offers from Ohio, Valparaiso, Notre Dame College (Oh.), Carnegie Mellon, Slippery Rock and interest from FCS and Ivy League schools.

“I’d like to thank my friends, family, coaches, and God for supporting me every step of the way,” Ibrahim wrote on Twitter. “With that being said, I’m blessed to say I am committed to the University of Pittsburgh.”

A star two-way athlete for Chartiers Valley, Ibrahim led the Colts with 49 catches for 832 yards and five touchdowns and racked up 83 tackles (41 solo) and a tackle for loss on defense — while sharing the field with 2023 Penn State commit Lamont Payne.

While Ibrahim joins a loaded wide receivers room, Pitt’s secondary is looking to reload, and his size is just a bit off the standards for Pitt linebackers. After a redshirt season, he could look to challenge for playing time across Pitt’s defense if that’s the direction he winds up taking. Although, he was one of the top wide receivers in the WPIAL as a senior, ranking as the sixth-leading receiver in the conference.

Ibrahim joins Belle Vernon athlete Devin Whitlock, Central Catholic tight end/defensive end Josh Altsman and Kiski Area athlete Brock Wilkins as a PWO in Pitt’s 2022 class.

Pitt’s 2022 recruiting class should be all about concluded now as focus shifts to what should be a large 2023 recruiting class for Pat Narduzzi — especially among new hires in Frank Cignetti Jr. (at offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach) and Tiquan Underwood (at wide receivers coach and passing game coordinator).
