While the results in terms of commitments over the past few years might not be where they had hoped, the Pitt Panthers remain diligent in their recruiting in the state of Michigan.
On Wednesday, Archie Collins talked with and extended an offer to two talented tight ends in the Class of 2024: 4-star Dylan Mesman and Brody Kosin, who is from Clarkston High School in Clarkston, Michigan.
The Panthers become Kosin’s second Power Five offer (Kentucky) and his fifth overall offer (Central Michigan, Miami, Ohio and Toledo).
Pittsburgh Sports Now spoke this morning with Kosin, who was excited about the news and with his overall phone conversation last night with Collins.
“Coach Collins asked for my film, so I sent it to him,” said Kosin. “He then told me to give him a call which I did at 6:30 PM. He went through what I’m good at and also somethings that I need to still work on and ended the conversation by telling me that I had a full ride scholarship to the University of Pittsburgh. It was a big moment for me, I felt very proud to get that offer, it really was huge for me.”
“He liked my height with me being 6’6″. He liked that I can bend and play low and likes my route-running and speed off the line of scrimmage. Coach wants me to come down and visit Pitt which I’m very excited about doing. Pitt has been one of my dream schools for a while. One of our Clarkston High School kickers, Alex Kessman, went there and set many records.”
Last week, Kosin received his first Power Five offer from Kentucky and now comes Pitt, which is an indicator that his recruitment is about to take off, something that he’s ready and very excited for.
“Last year I had a pretty good season and ended up getting 3 MAC offers,” said Kosin. “This season, I think I’ve had a pretty good season, catching the ball well, being a big target for my team in the redzone and blocking pretty physical. I’ve now picked up two Power Five offers which I’m excited about. I would like to consider myself as a hybrid tight end. Our Clarkston offense runs the ball a lot but whenever we air it out, I’m capable of making a play.”
“After I got my Kentucky and Pitt offer, a lot more schools have started reaching out like Missouri, Ohio State, Boston College and Wake Forest so I’m excited to see where things go from here.”
