Pitt FB Recruiting

2023 3-Star CB Brice Pollock Decommits From Pitt

Published

on

It hasn’t been the best stretch of recruiting news for Pitt football over the last month, with four decommitments in the last 30 days, and there’s been another.

Brice Pollock, a 6-foot-1, 175-pound cornerback from Shiloh High in Snellville, Georgia, decommitted from Pitt Tuesday afternoon.

“I want to thank coach Narduzzi, coach Collins, coach Manalac and the entire Pitt coaching staff for believing in me and giving me this great opportunity. This has been the hardest decision of my life.

“But after lots of thought and prayer, I will be decommitting from the University of Pittsburgh.”

Pollock committed to Pitt over offers from the likes of Ole Miss, Colorado, Duke, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Kansas State, Kentucky, Michigan State, Mississippi State, Nebraska, North Carolina, Penn State, Wake Forest and West Virginia.

He made his official visit to Pittsburgh in early June, and he was a part of the large group of recruits to officially commit after the initial first weekend of visits.

“I don’t get this family feeling from any other school,” Pollock told Pittsburgh Sports Now in June. “You know what they always say, when it feels right, make the decision. It felt right. I couldn’t leave without committing.”

Pollock had visits planned for Ole Miss, Michigan State and North Carolina, but he canceled them after his initial commitment — and it appears Mississippi State is the new favorite.

247Sports rates Pollock as the 545th-ranked recruit in the class (53rd-ranked cornerback and 52nd-ranked recruit from Georgia) while Rivals grades him as the 69th-ranked cornerback and 54th-ranked recruit from Georgia. On3 also has Pollock as a Top-500 recruit.

With Pollock’s decommitment, Pitt now holds the 56th-ranked class on both 247Sports and Rivals. Three-star defensive backs Shadarian Harrison (Lakeland, Florida) and Jesse Anderson (Fort Lauderdale, Florida) remain in the class.

Pitt has just under a month to try to flip or land new recruits in the class of 2023 before National Signing Day.

I kind of wonder if the ACC just isn’t a conference that’s losing whatever luster it once had, now that the SEC and Big Ten are poised to become the Big 2 and Clemson now looks ordinary.

You are correct. FSU and Clemson are already looking to leave, with Miami not far behind. ACC will not be a conference in a few years.

State Pen. so bad wants to be in B10-West!
Speaking of State Pen., used to hear the expression SHOWER before you COME to BED. At State Pen. you can accomplish all three at once which is great time savings.

Young Athletes being indecisive or getting better opportunities is nothing different than the Coaching and AD market doing the same.

Clemson not leaving, too easy of path to CFB if they are Undefeated or 1-Loss Team. Why go to SEC to Lose more often than necessary. Teams are already softening the non-conference schedules in advance of 12 Team expansion.

So Hayes beats women and just has to work out hard….ok, and Duzz knew at MSU, but keep bringing up the old narrative.
Clemson, and others are going to leave because of the TV deal. Money rules everything and the ACC has a terrible deal. SEC and BigTen bring in huge dollars. In fact, in the future there will probably be 2 super conferences: ESPN and Fox

Michigan,’s starting QB in 2021 just went into the portal. kid named McNamara, Duzz should be all over the kid, he is better than any QB we have now. Think he got hurt and lost his job while he was hurt. Supposed to be good to go now.

If McNamara came here (which he wouldn’t) then Slovis would leave.
Cade is from the west coast, look for Arizona State to go hard with their new Coach, who is an offensive guy. They need to get a QB because I would assume Patti is leaving.
