2023 three-star interior offensive linemen Michael Crounse had planned on making an official visit to Pitt this weekend, potentially even after committing to Boston College Tuesday, but he has decided to call off the visit.
“I am not going to take the visit,” Crounse told Pittsburgh Sports Now. “I don’t feel it’s right to take away resources from the program if I am committed elsewhere.”
Crounse, a 6-foot-6, 300-pound offensive lineman from DeMatha Catholic High School in Hyattsville, Maryland, made his official visit to Boston College last weekend, and it was enough to lock in his commitment. With his official visit to Pitt called off, it appears that Crounse is fully locked in.

Pitt still has a very, very busy weekend of official visitors, most of whom are arriving today, and Pitt’s 2023 recruiting class will more than likely pick up an offensive lineman commit or two either this weekend or next.
Pitt has also extended a couple of offers to 2023 linemen recently, including 2023 interior offensive lineman Nick Krahe (Harborcreek, Pennsylvania) and 2023 three-star offensive tackle Colin Van Rooy (Strongsville, Ohio).
