Pitt FB Recruiting

Update on Some 2023 (and 2024) Pitt Commits’ High School Seasons



The recruiting craze has taken a bit of a backseat as the 2022 season has gotten underway, but the future of Pitt football has been playing all throughout the fall.

Pitt’s 19-man 2023 recruiting class is one that’s heavily comprised of recruits that committed over the summer, a class that includes a star quarterback, a dual-threat running back, a handful of wide receivers, a collection of offensive and defensive linemen, a few linebackers and some defensive backs.

So, how are those 2023 recruits (and the lone 2024 recruit) doing halfway through their senior (and junior) seasons?

Kenny Minchey — four-star quarterback

47-of-64 for 768 yards (73%) and 11 touchdowns with one interception; 17 carries for 57 yards in four games

Minchey is the top-ranked recruit in Pitt’s class of 2023, and the Elite 11 quarterback put together a nearly perfect four game stretch to open his senior season. He picked up an injury and has been sidelined for the last few games, but the 6-foot-1, 210-pounder has only proven that he’s one of the top quarterbacks in the class.

Brice Pollock — three-star cornerback

One carry for 42 yards, five receptions for 106 yards; 35 tackles (22 solo), two tackles for loss, one sack, two interceptions, four pass breakups and a forced fumble

It hasn’t been the best season for Shiloh High, but Pollock has been an impact defensive back. The 6-foot-1, 175-pound cornerback is a physical defender with excellent ball skills. It’s almost a tailor-made fit for Pitt’s defense.

Zion Fowler — four-star wide receiver

21 receptions for 417 yards (19.9 average) and four touchdowns; five kick returns for 113 yards (22.6 average), seven punt returns for 103 yards (14.7 average)

Fowler, an explosive athlete at the wide receiver position, hasn’t just been a deep threat for St. Joe’s Prep this season. He’s also been a more than capable return man. The 6-foot-1, 180-pound wideout was Pitt’s first commit in the class, and he’s continued to show why he’s a coveted option.

Antonio Camon — three-star defensive lineman

20 tackles (10 solo), seven tackles for loss, four sacks, two pass breakups and a forced fumble

Camon has been a driving force on a Tampa Bay Tech defense that has fueled a 7-0 start this season. It’s been a highly productive senior season for the 6-foot-2, 250-pound defensive lineman. After a state title last season, Camon will likely help lead TBT back again this season.

Rasheem Biles — three-star linebacker

33 carries for 200 yards and three touchdowns, eight receptions for 101 yards and a touchdown; 48 tackles, two tackles for loss, a sack and two interceptions for touchdowns; three kick returns for 77 yards (25.7 average) and four punt returns for 50 yards (12.5 average)

Unfortunately, Biles’s senior season has come to an early end following a torn meniscus, but he showcased his electric playmaking ability offensively, defensively and on special teams before the injury. The 6-foot-2, 180-pound athlete is destined for playing linebacker in Pitt’s defense.

Braylan Lovelace — three-star linebacker

88 carries for 982 yards (11.3 average) and 13 touchdowns, four receptions for 80 yards and a touchdown; defensive and special teams stats not recorded

Lovelace has been one of the most productive running backs in the WPIAL this season, well on his way to another massive season on the ground, but his future is at linebacker. The 6-foot-2, 200-pound athlete doesn’t have his defensive stats listed, but he’s a true athlete capable of playing all three linebacker spots in Pitt’s defense.

Lamar Seymore

Six receptions for 65 yards and a touchdown in two games

Seymore is one of the more underrated recruits in Pitt’s class, a Miami flip after an official visit to Pittsburgh, and he’s off to a strong start at powerhouse Miami Central. With just two games listed, Seymore (6-foot-2, 185 pounds) has continued a torrid rise after a strong summer of 7-on-7 play.

Montravius Lloyd 

31 carries for 111 yards (3.6 average) and two touchdowns, 23 receptions for 284 yards (12.3 average) and two touchdowns; five tackles (three solo), two tackles for loss and a blocked field goal; two kick returns for 76 yards (38 average), eight returns for 24 yards (three average)

Lloyd hasn’t been the most notable runner this season, but the future Pitt running back has excelled everywhere else this season. In a 6-foot, 205-pound frame, Lloyd is an adept receiver out of the backfield or in the slot, and he’s shown that he’s agile enough to return kicks too.

Jahsear Whittington — four-star defensive lineman

Nine tackles (four solo), two tackles for loss and a sack in two games

The only recruit in Pitt’s class of 2024 is Whittington, and the 6-foot-2, 280-pounder has been impactful to start his junior season at Imhotep Charter. With just two games recorded on MaxPreps, Whittington’s blend of power and speed has been on full display.
