The Pitt offensive line will have a dramatic new look in 2023.
With Carter Warren, Marcus Minor, Owen Drexel and Gabe Houy all graduating and with the uncertain future of Jake Kradel, Pitt could potentially lose five starters.
The silver lining for Dave Borbely is that due to injuries, 2022 backups such as Branson Taylor, Matt Goncalves, Ryan Jacoby, Blake Zubovic and Terrence Moore all were able to get a number of reps with the first team offense, so they do have game experience.
However, with those players having the real opportunity to be elevated to starters status, veteran depth is needed to replace them or to possibly earn a role as a starter.
Wednesday night, Borbely and Pitt extended an offer to a player that would no doubt challenge for a starting role.
6’6″, 330-pound offensive tackle Marcellus Marshall received an offer from Pitt.

Since transferring from Kent State, Marshall is receiving instant interest in the portal, with offers from Colorado and Minnesota.
Marshall was named first-team All-MAC last season despite being a true freshman. He will have three years of eligibility remaining.
