Pitt FB Recruiting

2023 3-Star WR Chance Fitzgerald Recaps Visit to Pitt

Published

on

Over the next few weeks, bringing in a wide receiver or two will be a top priority for the Pat Narduzzi and his coaches.

Due to transfers and decommitments, Pitt has lost three receivers and there’s no guarantee that more won’t be leaving.

Over the weekend, the Panthers hosted a talented 2023 3-star receiver that would be a tremendous addition to their recruiting Class of 2023.

Chance Fitzgerald (6’3″, 190-pounds) from Nolensville, Tennessee made an unofficial visit to check out Pitt in their final home game of the season. Fitzgerald is a highly sought-after player having offers from programs such as Auburn, Georgia Tech, Iowa, Kansas State, Kentucky, Louisville, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Oklahoma State, Virginia Tech, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

Despite just recently extending him an offer, Tiquan Underwood and Pitt have done a nice job with Fitzgerald, as evidenced by his trip to Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh Sports Now caught up with Fitzgerald on Sunday after his visit to get his initial impressions of the Pitt Panther football program.

“I really like Coach Underwood a lot and I really like how much they were throwing the ball. They threw the ball a lot more than I thought they were going to,” said Fitzgerald. “Talking with Coach Underwood, he was telling me about the team that Pitt has and the things that they have that other programs don’t. He also told me how he liked how much better I’ve gotten over the last year especially with the way I played during my senior year. But a big focus of what he was saying was how they have the Pittsburgh Steelers right next door and other things that normal colleges don’t have.”

“Going on this visit, I wanted to see what it was going to be like for Pitt fans in the Steelers stadium and how they would fill it out. Actually, there were more people than I thought it would be and they told me there wasn’t that many people there and normally there’s a lot more, which was good to hear.”

Fitzgerald describes himself to PSN as an outside receiver “with strong hands, a good catch radius, strong and physical with decent speed. I feel as though I would be able to help Pitt right away on the outside. I noticed they have a couple of big receivers like myself.”

This was just an unofficial visit for Fitzgerald so with National Signing Day approaching, he and his family are putting together a list of his upcoming official visits.

“I’m not sure if I’ll be going anywhere this weekend but the following week, I’ll be taking my first official visit to Virginia Tech,” said Fitzgerald. “As of now, that’s the only official visit that I have scheduled.”

“The Pitt coaches and I talked about me coming up for an official visit, we just have to pick the date.”

Fitzgerald didn’t totally commit to coming up for an official visit and wants to talk things over with his family and look at all of his options before doing so.

Offer him a scholarship, and the QB that throws to him. That kids’ video on MaxPreps is pretty impressive, Coby Walton QB (GA Southern commit). Looks like he gets rid of the ball quick and uses the intermediate throws in the middle of the field, imagine that!
