Pitt recruiting in Florida is nothing new and precedes the arrival of Pat Narduzzi but during his tenure, the Panthers have no doubt made that state a bigger priority and devoted more coaches to recruit the abundance of talent. Charlie Partridge is heads up Pitt’s efforts in Florida, but he also has help from Tim Salem, Cory Sanders, Tiquan Underwood and Frank Cignetti, Jr.
The encouraging thing is that the Panthers are no doubt getting results from all the effort they’ve put in recruiting Florida. The same can be said for the recent effort placed in Georgia, which is led by Archie Collins, with help from Ryan Manalac. In terms of recruiting in Pennsylvania, most of that is done by Cory Sanders and Dave Borbely, while Ohio is manned by Archie Collins, Randy Bates and Ryan Manalac.
With the news today from Anderson, that gives 66 commitments from the Class of 2020 thru 2023. Here is the breakdown of where the Pitt coaches have gotten these players from.
PITT RECRUITS BY STATE FROM CLASS OF 2020 THRU 2023:
New York: 4
New Jersey: 3
South Carolina: 1
