Pitt Lands Commitment from 2023 3-Star DB Jesse Anderson



The Pitt football program has reeled in another talented player from South Florida, as three-star safety Jesse Anderson announced on Tuesday that he has committed to join Pitt’s Class of 2023. Anderson was in Pittsburgh over the weekend for an official visit and was one of the five players that made the decision to commit to Pitt.

Anderson (6-foot-2, 180 pounds) attends Cardinal Gibbons High School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and Charlie Partridge was his chief recruiter to Pitt. Before deciding on Pitt, Anderson held offers from Boston College, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Louisville, Maryland, NC State, South Florida and Wake Forest. In the end, Anderson decided on Pitt over Maryland, where he made an official visit two weeks ago.

“When I came back up on the visit, I got to spend real time with everyone and the coaches and it really meant a lot to me,” Anderson told Pittsburgh Sports Now. “I made the decision in my mind as I was hanging out with the older guys and all the players from Gibbons (High School). That all made it feel like home to me and it made a great atmosphere. I just knew that I wanted to be here and spend four years here. The coaches here at Pitt really made my comfortable off the field and my future role on the field.”

Pitt has a large number of players from the Sunshine State on their current roster, and two former Cardinal Gibbons players in Vincent Davis and Marquis Williams. How much of a role did that play into his decision?

“I was definitely a big factor. I’m not saying I wouldn’t have picked Pitt without that, but it definitely helped and made a big difference.”

”At the end of my visit, Coach Narduzzi asked how much longer did I think before I made my decision, he said he wasn’t rushing me and wanted me to take my time and be sure and really mean it. When he asked that, I told him I just need a minute and that I’ve made it and want to commit. He was very happy and said ‘Welcome to the Family’ and the rest is history.”

Anderson is a versatile player and told PSN and while he’ll be a defensive back at Pitt, it’s not set in stone as to whether he’ll play at cornerback, safety or nickel back. Regardless of what position he ends up at, reaching this level and making this decision is a dream come true.

”It’s such a great day and something I’ve always dreamed about,” said Anderson. “This makes my family so happy and makes me proud to know that all the work I’ve put in throughout out the years has paid off. I have a committable offer to play major college football at Pitt.”
