Pitt FB Recruiting

2023 3-Star ATH Rasheem Biles Adds Pitt’s Third Commitment of Weekend

Published

on

With five commits this weekend, Pitt put together another solid recruiting effort for the second weekend of official visitors, and the third commit is from a versatile defensive athlete.

2023 three-star athlete Rasheem Biles from Pickerington Central High School in Pickerington, Ohio officially announced his commitment to Pitt Sunday night.

Pickerington (6-foot-2, 180 pounds) chose Pitt over offers from Akron, Bowling Green, Eastern Kentucky, Eastern Michigan, Kent State, Marshall, Miami (Oh.), Ohio, Purdue, Toledo, West Virginia and Western Michigan.

Biles had planned an official visit to West Virginia next weekend, but with his Pitt commitment, that appears to be off. And his lone official visit to Pitt helped seal the deal in the end.

As a big, rangy defender in high school, Biles excelled as a defensive back and linebacker in Pickerington Central’s defense, but he appears to be destined as a linebacker in Pitt’s defensive system.

Along with three-star linebacker Braylan Lovelace, Biles is the second presumptive linebacker to commit to Pitt in the class of 2023.

As a junior in Pickerington Central’s defense, helping the Tigers to a 12-2 season, Biles accumulated 74 tackles (45 solo), eight tackles for loss, three interceptions, two passes defended and a fumble recovery — and two interceptions returned for touchdowns.

247Sports rates Biles as the 876th-ranked recruit in the class (79th-ranked athlete and 26th-ranked recruit from Ohio) while On3 rates him as the 1,061st-ranked recruit in the class (64th-ranked athlete and the 32nd-ranked recruit from Ohio). Rivals gives him a 5.5 Rivals Rating and 40th-placed ranking in Ohio.

Along with three-star running back Montravius Lloyd (St. Petersburg, Florida) and Lovelace (Leechburg, Pennsylvania), Seymore joins Pitt’s rapidly growing class of 2023 recruiting class — including the six commits from three-star defensive lineman Isaiah Neal (Baltimore, Maryland), three-star cornerback Brice Pollock (Snellville, Georgia), three-star wide receiver Kenny Johnson (York, Pennsylvania), three-star defensive end Antonio Camon (Tampa, Florida), three-star cornerback Shelton Lewis (Stockbridge, Georgia) and three-star cornerback Shadarian Harrison (Lakeland, Florida).

Re: Aaron Donald, two scholarship Toledo and Pitt. Turned out alright. You never know. Pro teams that passed on him missed his quickness and upper body strength. Opposite was Tony Mandrich from Michigan. Projected as 10-year tackle and was out of the league in 3. SirVocea Dennis was an afterthought signing and now could be an All American.

At this point, with the track record of this staff developing their 3 stars over the past years, I cant question offer sheets, etc. They know what theyre doing.

You might develop a few 3* and hit on an Aaron Donald, but the story here is a roster of 3* players is exactly that and Clemson and Miami trot out 4-5* players. Talent wins in the end.
BTW..Mandarich went to Michigan State and played 6 years in the NFL. Was never dominant like pre-steroids but 6 years in the league on the OL is probably the average career length.

Although a bust based on being picked #2 overall, Mandrich (MSU not UM) turned into a serviceable guard and played 7 seasons.

A mostly unimpressive group of recruits compared to two weeks earlier 🙁

Clearly, our fans do not read the entire article. How has nobody picked up on this mistake? “Seymore joins Pitt’s rapidly growing class of 2023 recruiting class” Did Karl let something slip about Lamar???

Last Paragraph has Seymore instead of Biles. Perhaps that is one of the unknown commits who has not made it public yet. He was in the Article about Official Visits, Lamar Seymore who was Projected to U.Miami as WR. We’ll see if it was a Typo or one of the remaining unknowns.
