Pitt Picks Up Commitment from 3-Star CB Shadarian Harrison During OV

Published

on

It’s the very first weekend of Pitt hosting 2023 recruits on official visits, and in what is expected to be a very, very active June, Pitt has racked up three commits very, very early.

One of those commits is 2023 three-star cornerback Shadarian Harrison from Kathleen High School in Lakeland, Florida. Harrison (6-foot-2, 185 pounds) chose Pitt over offers from Charlotte, Colorado, Connecticut, Eastern Kentucky, Georgia State, Illinois, Incarnate Word, Iowa State, Jacksonville State, Louisville, Nebraska, Oregon State, South Florida, Temple, Tennessee, Toledo, Vanderbilt, Western Michigan and West Virginia.

Pitt first extended an offer to Harrison on Jan. 19, and with an unofficial visit to Pittsburgh on March 26, he was given his first taste of Pitt football. It’s clear that an official visit this week was enough to convince the under-recruited recruit to make his decision.

The big, lengthy cornerback is a recruit who fits an area of need at Pitt, and he’s blessed with an uncommon frame, standing at 6-foot-2 and nearly 200 pounds, so it’s unsurprising that Pitt has managed to land an under-recruited player from a talent-rich state like Florida.

247Sports rates Harrison as the 89th-ranked cornerback and the 135th-ranked recruit from Florida while On3 rates him as the 47th-ranked quarterback and the 75th-ranked recruit from Florida. Rivals hasn’t rated Harrison, but he holds a 5.5 Rivals Rating.

With Harrison out of Kathleen HS in Lakeland, he’s the next in a long, long line of Florida defensive backs that includes Brandon Hill, Marquis Williams, Jahvante Royal, P.J. O’Brien and Noah Biglow.

Pitt’s 2023 recruiting class includes four-star quarterback Kenny Minchey (Hendersonville, Tennessee) and four-star wide receiver Zion Fowler (Jersey City, New Jersey), and the class will only continue to grow in the weeks and months to come.

Glad Duzz could fend off Incarnate Word and Georgia State to secure a commitment

We don’t have the NIL money of Texas A & M and PS. Who buy their players.

The NCAA enacted it’s NIL policy, but the states have the right to further restrict what athletes can do. For instance, the Governor of the state of Alabama signed a law to repeal the state’s NIL law so Alabama and Auburn weren’t at a disadvantage on the recruiting trail. Pennsylvania has one of the worst state NIL laws to restrict athletes (one of the big reasons Rodney Gallagher went to West Virginia).
Pitt and PSU might have the money, but the laws restrict them and are definitely at a disadvantage when talking to athletes.
