Pitt Adds Commitment from Grad Transfer Notre Dame RB C’Bo Flemister

Published

on

It wasn’t always smooth sailing for C’Bo Flemister after he flipped his commitment from Georgia Tech to Notre Dame on National Signing Day 2018, but he’s looking for one final chance in college football.

Flemister, a 5-foot-11, 200-pound former three-star running back commit from Pike County High School in Zebulon, Georgia, committed to Notre in 2018, and after four seasons, he entered the transfer portal in April. After a short stay, he’s found a new home in Pittsburgh.

Flemister became the second former Notre Dame class of 2018 commit (following Shayne Simon), to commit to Pitt in 2022, he announced via Twitter.

In four seasons at Notre Dame, Flemister racked up 471 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns on 110 attempts (4.3 yards per attempt), and he added 49 yards on three receptions.

Flemister’s best season came as a junior in 2020, Notre Dame’s College Football Playoff season, in which he rushed for 299 yards and five touchdowns on 58 carries. He rushed for 48 yards and a touchdown against Pitt that season in a game Pitt would rather never think about again.

With a tough senior season, charged for leaving the scene of a single car accident last April (the charges were dropped and he performed 25 hours of community service) and an injury that cut his season to just one game and three rushing attempts, Flemister will look to provide more as a grad transfer at Pitt. Despite being a grad transfer, he provides two seasons of eligibility.

However, with Israel Abanikanda, Rodney Hammond Jr., Vincent Davis and Daniel Carter in place as Pitt’s very, very healthy stable of running backs, it isn’t likely that Flemister sees a ton of playing time unless injuries arise.

However, with 2022 running back commit Jordaan Bailey not enrolling at Pitt, Flemister provides a proven, veteran depth option in the backfield.

Pitt also features walk-ons in Taelen Brooks, Angelo Priore, Justin Cullins and Georgia transfer Anthony Summey in 2022.

How does this fit with scholarships? The article on the Darthmouth QB said they were at their limit.

I’m trying to get excited about Pitt’s recruiting class but it’s really hard to when at least 4-team’s from the ACC have far higher recruiting rankings currently (i.e. Clemson, Miami, NC State, & Wake Forrest). This is really upsetting after winning the ACC. Pitt’s recruiting class should be ranked right up there with Clemson’s — definitely not below the other three. Hopefully Pitt soon lands a few coveted 4-star athletes that fit well with the team.

Funny thing is these recruiting rankings didn’t help these teams against us last year. People who really follow football know the offer sheets of these kids say more than these stars. Fair weather fans are annoying 😤

4 & 5 star athletes expect to play and be featured immediately. Where is one of these athletes going to break into significant playing time with this veteran team?
Even Alabama isn’t immune to this. Remember when the entire freshmen QB class left because Tua was the starter and had two years to go before leaving for the NFL?
Our rivals are offering opportunity which we can’t.
