Pitt is looking to taking advantage of some recent head coaching shuffling in the ACC.
Many were caught off guard with the news this week that Scott Satterfield was leaving Louisville to become the head coach at Cincinnati.
That surprise announcement has led to some Louisville recruits looking around at other schools, including to Pitt.
Adam Gorney from Rivals.com is reporting that 2023 4-star tight end Jamari Johnson from Inglewood, California will make an official visit this weekend to Pitt.
Johnson (6’5, 245-pounds) has been committed to Louisville from since April but apparently wants to check out other programs following the coaching change.
Prior to committing to Louisville, Johnson received offers from Alabama, Arizona, Florida State, Michigan State, and Washington.
Earlier this week, Pitt tight ends coach Tim Salem tweeted out a picture from California, so you’d assume that he had some sort of contact with Johnson that led to this upcoming visit.

Currently, Pitt’s Class of 2023 doesn’t have a commitment from a tight end so obviously the chance to land a player of Johnson’s skillset would be huge for Pitt.
