2024 LB Keyshawn Flowers Furthers Pitt Relationship With Junior Day Visit

Published

on

Andre Powell made the trip down to see Keyshawn Flowers in Severn, Maryland Thursday, so Flowers decided to return the favor.

Flowers, a 6-foot-2, 215-pound linebacker from Archbishop Spalding High in Maryland in the class of 2024, made it out to Pitt’s Junior Day Saturday, catching up with Powell and getting a chance to see the facilities on the South Side.

“It’s a pretty good relationship,” Flowers told PSN. “I had talked to coach Powell on Twitter, so I didn’t know much about Pitt, but I learned a little bit.

“It was a decent relationship (before the offer), and we definitely built a better relationship after he came down to see me on Thursday and offered me.”

Powell extended an official offer Thursday while visiting Archbishop Spalding, adding to a list that includes James Madison, Rhode Island, Campbell, Wake Forest and Massachusetts, and the relationship grew Saturday.

“It all looked nice, especially the practice field,” Flowers said. “It was huge. And the cafeteria was pretty cool, too, since they share it with the Steelers.”

He had no idea that the Steelers and Panthers share a facility on the South Side, but it definitely caught his eye when he arrived.

The facility as a whole caught Flowers’ eye, especially the outdoor practice facility along the Monongahela River and the indoor facility across from the locker rooms.

“He was just telling us about the culture, showing me the defense and the linebackers coach and telling us the defense and what they run,” Flowers said. 

Flowers is a big, rangy linebacker at Archbishop where he helped lead the Cavaliers to an 11-1 campaign capped by a MIAA Class-A, racking up 81 tackles (39 solo), 11 tackles for loss, five sacks, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

He earned first-team All-Metro honors as a linebacker during his junior season.

Neither 247Sports nor Rivals have ranked Flowers yet, but as many in the class of 2024 will surely do in the coming weeks and months, he will begin to appear on recruiting rankings.

Group of Five and Power Five programs have already noticed Flowers, and he will likely be making visits to JMU and Virginia, among others, soon. And Pitt has made an early impression itself.

“The program definitely looks like a good program, definitely welcoming. … They’re definitely one of my top schools right now.”
