Pitt FB Recruiting
2023 4-Star Commitment Kenny Minchey Will Enroll Early At Pitt
The Pitt Panthers sit today at 5-4, which is a record not many people thought they’d have following nine games.
However, due to a number of issues that have been well chronicled, the Panthers have underachieved and will not repeat as ACC Champions.
With the glass half empty outlook, a portion of the fanbase worried that the offensive struggles could impact their 2023 recruiting class, in particular, four-star quarterback Kenny Minchey’s decision.
That’s not going to happen.
The star quarterback from Tennessee tells Pittsburgh Sports Now that he’s fully committed to Pitt, and in fact, tells us that he will be enrolling early at Pitt. Minchey will sign his Letter of Intent in December and arrive at Pitt in January.
This will allow Minchey to get acclimated to college life and the work the needs to be done in the classroom as well as diving into Frank Cignetti Jr.’s playbook. Minchey will also be able to develop a bond with his new teammates as well as the players on the offensive side of the ball.
Minchey arriving early could be important as we wait and see what happens with the Panthers quarterback depth chart following the season and which ones will decide to stay and which ones will move on.
As of now, the only quarterback that we know for sure will be in Pittsburgh starting in 2023 is Minchey.
Grateful for Minchey coming to Pitt. He is a great player, smart, and a true leader.
I am hopeful he will be playing for a new OC.
Agreed, with Minchey at QB along with a new OC, I would at least have some hope for the future of Pitt football.
Don’t lay everything at Cignetti’s feet. Narduzzi shares most if not all the blame for the pendulum swing from Whipple’s Air Force offense to Shawn Watson’s run based offense. Cignetti’s only calling plays that Narduzzi wants.
Ohio State played Northwestern in gale force conditions on Saturday and shutdown the passing game in the 2nd half to win. That’s where coach’s thinking is.
Great news for Pitt. Good to know that loyalty and big-picture thinking still exists among some of the younger set.
Great News!!! Hopefully he is somewhat mobil because that makes everything better at the college level. Now we need to get some more 4 star recruits!
What the better Programs in College football have is really simple…you need to have a mobile, dual-threat QB…Minchey is supposed to have these skills…he will have plenty of talent around him, just please someone tell our OC not to be so Vanilla and predictable – proof of my last statement is just tell me how many points our Offense has scored in the last 3 games in the 4th QTR?
I Agree!!! I’m not sure why we went out and brought in a “big time transfer QB” and don’t let him throw the ball, except on third and long. I’m not saying he’s great or even very good, but if we threw more on first down it would help his tunnel vision. He stares down his primary receiver, and then gets sacked or intercepted if he’s covered. If he were mobil, he could run.
Maybe he wants UPMC to look at his injured Shoulder, he has been out after Week 4 of HS football this Year
BTW, Boston College’s season is not going well with their replacement OC for FC and Whipple’s Air Force offense has Nebraska fans wishing for the old days. Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.
