Pitt Makes the Cut for Official Visitor WR Lamar Seymore
Lamar Seymore had been committed to Miami when he made his official visit to Pitt from June 16-18, but he de-committed a few days later and re-opened his commitment.
Seymore, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound three-star wide receiver from Miami Central High School in Miami, Florida, made the next step in his commitment today, announcing a Top 5 that includes Pitt, Penn State, UCF, Auburn and Miami.
With offers from Auburn, Colorado, Florida Atlantic, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan State, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Coastal Carolina, Penn State, Tennessee, West Virginia, Pitt, UCF and Miami, Seymore has received major interest from across the country. And Pitt is in a good position with the talented wideout.

Seymore made his official visits to Pitt and UCF in June, and the relationship he’s built with wide receivers coach Tiquan Underwood and defensive line coach Charlie Partridge has been a deciding factor in Pitt earning top contender status.
There isn’t a set commitment date for Seymore at this point, but Pitt should be considered the favorite to land the Florida wideout.
In just seven games as a junior at Miami Central, Seymore hauled in 19 receptions for 355 yards and four touchdowns (at just under 20 yards per reception) alongside 2024 wide receiver Joshisa Trader — a top-10 national recruit in the cycle.
247Sports rates Seymore as the 823rd-ranked recruit in the class (113th-ranked wide receiver and the 119th-ranked recruit from Florida) while On3 rates him as the 846th-ranked recruit in the class (123rd-ranked wide receiver and 126th-ranked recruit from Florida). Rivals rates him as the 96th-ranked wide receiver in the class — holding a 5.6 Rivals Rating.
Pitt has landed commitments from four-star wide receiver Zion Fowler (Jersey City, New Jersey) and three-star wide receiver Kenny Johnson (York, Pennsylvania) so far this cycle, and targets like Seymore and five-star Hykeem Williams are still on the board.
