Pitt FB Recruiting

2023 6-foot-8 Twin OL Brody and Graysen Riffe Commit to Pitt as PWOs

Published

on

The majority of the recruits Pitt hosted over the weekend were in the class of 2024 and 2025, but the Riffe brothers — Brody and Graysen — made official visits as part of the class of 2023.

The Riffe brothers flew up with their family to check out Pittsburgh, after being extended preferred walk-on offers earlier this month, both committed as PWOs Tuesday.

Brody, who is listed at 6-foot-8, 300 pounds, and Graysen, who is listed at 6-foot-8, 310 pounds, attend West Orange High School in Winter Garden, Florida. And both received offers from Pitt and Penn State.

Dave Borbely, Pitt’s offensive line coach, was able to watch Brody and Graysen firsthand in December, checking out West Orange High while on a recruiting visit.

After a good visit to Pittsburgh, checking out the facilities and making it out for the Pitt-Florida State basketball game as part of an official visit, the Riffe brothers decided to commit.

MaxPreps credits Brody with 23 pancake blocks (in six games) and Graysen with 17 (in eight games) as the brother bookended the line for West Orange at the tackle spots.

The Riffe brothers are blessed with a blend of size and power that most offensive linemen can only dream of possessing, and Borbely is clearly intrigued by the potential the brothers have to offer at the next level. Brody and Graysen will now have the opportunity to work toward growing — if that’s even possible — within the system.

Pitt has picked up a PWO commitment from IMG Academy post-grad quarterback David Lynch (Bradenton, Florida), and the class of 2023 landed three offensive linemen in Ryan Carretta (Columbus Ohio), BJ Williams (Fairburn, Georgia), Tai Ray (Apopka, Florida).

I don’t suppose either of them excels at rebounding, do they? ‘Cause there might be some playing time available for a 6’8″ student athlete…just not in the sport they committed for.

Maybe Duzz could trade them to Coach Capel for Blake Hinson, 6′ 7″ 235 lbs…would look good lined up at TE.

Hey more Twins. Maybe Pitt can open a branch campus in Twinsburg, Ohio.
Always kinds of liked the blond Doublemint twin sisters myself.

See what happens when I’m away in Aspen skiing? You are left with posts like this.
My model girlfriend and I are home in Upper St. Clair so I can once again save PSN and offer stellar football knowledge for free. You can all thank me later.
