2023 3-Star OL Phillip Daniels De-Commits From Pitt

Published

on

On Monday, Pitt had two current players transfer and today, two players in their Class of 2023 have decided to de-commit.

Tuesday evening, 2023 three-star offensive lineman Phillip Daniels (6-foot-5, 285 pounds) from Princeton High School in Cincinnati, Ohio announced that he was opening his recruitment back up.

“I first wanna thank God for the opportunity to play the sport that I love. I want to thank my family and coaches through the process. Thank you to the fans, coaches and staff. This was a decision that took a long, hard process to make and with that, I will be de-committing from the University of Pittsburgh.”

Daniels gave his verbal commitment to Pitt on July 2, during a period of Pitt offensive linemen commitments. At the time, Daniels held other offers from Akron, Ball State, Bowling Green, Boston College, Buffalo, Connecticut, Eastern Michigan, Illinois State, Kentucky, Marshall, Massachusetts, Miami (Oh.), Middle Tennessee State, Minnesota, Ohio, Purdue and Toledo.

Daniels received his offer from Pitt after attending a prospects camp in early June and followed that up with an official visit on June 16-18.

The departure of Daniels and Colin Van Rooy earlier in the fall leaves Pitt with three offensive line commitments: Tai Ray (Apopka, Florida), Ryan Carretta (Columbus, Ohio) and BJ Williams (Fairburn, Georgia).

247Sports rates Daniels as the 683rd-ranked recruit in the class (49th-ranked interior offensive lineman and the 22nd-ranked recruit from Ohio) while On3 rates him as the 678th-ranked recruit in the class (35th-ranked offensive tackle and the 12th-ranked recruit from Ohio). Rivals grades him as the 35th-ranked recruit in Ohio — holding a 5.6 Rivals rating.

Pitt’s Class of 2023 is down to 13 commitments and is ranked 60th by Rivals.

Worried yet?? Pitt can’t even hold onto their 3-star commits anymore.

Am i worried? No. Not in the age of the transfer portal. As this very website pointed out recently, kids on the team are incredibly loyal to Narduzzi. I’m not going to lose sleep because a 3 star CB or OL who hasn’t proven anything on the field yet isn’t going to join the team. Go back to the article on here when Henry Parrish decommitted in 2019 and you’ll see a ton of comments saying the same thing as your comment above. We got to see Henry this past weekend at Miami where he’s put up 617 yards this… Read more »

How come everyone is thanking God for their de-commitment?

Must have had an epiphany.

This is what happens when you squander an ACC Championship by hiring an OC hack.

Terrible.

I couldn’t agree with you more. Hiring Cignetti has been a disaster. Pitt had an easy path to an udefeated season and ended up losing to Georgia Tech when they were favored by 22 at home is just one example. The underwhelming play of Slovis of which by the way Cignetti is the quarterbacks coach is another. Had Pitt lived up to the billing with all of the returning players, these players would not be decommitting from Pitt. I expect the Tightend to decomit along with Nick Patti as well to be the next players to decomit. This was Pitt’s… Read more »

A bold prediction from somebody who can’t even spell offense.

Nov.28 to Dec.17 = NCAA Contact Period which had followed a Dead and Quiet Period during the Recruiting Process.
Internet search Steel City NIL Club, Forged Here Exchange, or Alliance 412 (Chris Bickell 97′).

This is the new trend for these kids. This is just not happening just at Pitt, happening everywhere.
