Pitt FB Recruiting

2023 3-Star CB Brice Pollock Talks to PSN About De-Committing from Pitt

Published

on

Pitt’s recruiting Class of 2023 took another hit today when Brice Pollock announced his de-commitment.

Pollock is a talented three-star cornerback from Snellville, Georgia and had been committed to Pitt since June 4, 2022.

Pollock has an ideal frame for a cornerback (6-foot-1, 180 pounds) and would have been an ideal fit for the press coverage in Pat Narduzzi’s defense.

This news is a sting to Pitt and comes on the heels of losing four-star quarterback Kenny Minchey. With the Pollock departure, Shadarian Harrison (6-foot-2, 175-pounds) and Jesse Anderson (6-foot, 175 pounds) now are the two cornerbacks in this year’s class.

Following his news, Pittsburgh Sports Now was able to speak with Pollock and asked him what led to this surprising decision.

“The biggest thing is interest I’m getting from another program, and it’s not the recent offer I got from NC State,” said Pollock. “A SEC school has started hitting me up, and I just feel like it can possibly be a great opportunity. Family is really big to me and with some family stuff that I got going on, the decision was made because I want to be a little closer to home. This really had nothing to do with Pitt. I love Pitt and could see myself making it to the NFL from Pitt, but I felt like this was the best decision.

“This has nothing to do with Pitt or anything they might have done wrong. They were great. This is just a personal decision. For my entire season, I was onboard with Pitt but recently things changed, and my family and I have been talking about it. Coach Collins has always been great and was like a role model in my life and Coach Narduzzi too. It’s something I have been thinking about and it was tough.”

With Signing Day fast approaching, I asked Pollock his timeline for deciding on this new school, which appears to be an SEC school.

“I have a pretty good idea of the school but since my de-commitment, a couple new schools have been in touch, so I’m not entirely sure what’s in store for me. We’ll see if they end up offering me. If it’s Signing Day and I’m not sure, then I’ll just wait until February.”

Pollock did tell PSN that one of the new schools that has approached him is Florida State. While he wouldn’t name them, the SEC school is believed to be Mississippi State.

so many kids use a school as a placeholder, committing so they have a place to land but hoping for a bigger offer. If someone commits, then de-commits they shouldn’t be allowed to sign in December. Should be forced to wait until later signing day when more rosters are already filled. This might make kids think twice, and would help schools/coaches out as well.

That is a dumb take. The kids lives hours away. The sad reality is Pitt can’t rely on local talent to compete. We get blown out of the water by schools with bigger names and pockets. It sucks because Pitt has as much history as them.

There’s not too many schools who can solely rely on local talent! Most schools, especially the top ones, have kids from all over the country, even the world!

Could the young man be thinking SEC vs ACC??

And the above statement about place holders is factual!

Please explain what is dumb? You don’t think kids commit as a “safety school”? Happens all the time, and in fact usually gets them more offers. Kids today also don’t care about history, they probably don’t even know who Hugh Green is.

Overall excellent conversation. “On Campus Stadium” comments are right on point. This is why there is such a large gap between the top few programs and the rest. Clemson, Alabama, Ohio State, now USC can recruit five star talent or in some cases the top transfers. That is why they are generally in the College Football Playoffs each year (obvious exception this year). This is why I don’t understand the discontent with Pat Narduzzi and his accomplishments. We can complain and debate the topic but five star recruits will continue to go to the same small number of schools and… Read more »
