Pitt Gets Commitment From 2023 4-Star Quarterback Kenny Minchey



The Pitt football program lost a quarterback named Kenny after last season but have added one named Kenny for the future.

A day after former Panther star Kenny Pickett was the only quarterback selected in the 1st round of the 2022 NFL Draft, Pat Narduzzi received a commitment from 4-star quarterback Kenny Minchey from Pope John Paul II High School in Hendersonville, Tennessee.

Pitt football recruiting coverage sponsored by
RM LAW, P.C. is a boutique litigation law firm with a national practice dedicated to protecting shareholders’ interests and promoting improved corporate governance practices.

Minchey received his Pitt offer back on February 22 from assistant quarterback coach Jonathan DiBiaso and offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti, Jr. Following that, Minchey made his first unofficial visit to Pittsburgh on March 26.

Getting a commitment from Minchey, who lives in the heart of SEC country is a get for the Panthers staff and give credit to DiBiaso, Cignetti and all the positive vibes surrounding the Pitt football program these days. The last commitment Pitt received from a player from Tennessee was back in 2012 from 4-star quarterback Chad Voytik.

Along with Pitt, Minchey (6-foot-3, 200 pounds) held offers from Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Houston, Michigan State, Memphis, South Florida, Virginia, Virginia Tech and West Virginia.

As it stands now, we’re being told that Pitt only intends to take one high school quarterback in the Class of 2023, which is Minchey.

This can also turn into a commitment for future Pitt recruiting because with the hiring of DiBiaso, Cignetti and to some extent Tiquan Underwood, Pitt is slowing attempting to recruit the state of Tennessee. For the entire Class of 2022, Pitt extended offers to just two players from Tennessee. At this point, the Panthers staff has offered 10+ players.

Minchey becomes the 2nd commitment for the Class of 2023, joining New Jersey 4-star wide receiver Zion Fowler.
