Twin 2024 3-Star Defensive Linemen Tyclean and Tycoolhill Luman Visit Pitt
It’s kind of hard to believe, but Pitt received visits from two sets of twins Thursday.
2023 walk-on offensive linemen Graysen and Brody Riffe were in town to check out their future home, but they weren’t alone. They were joined by two very fast-rising three-star defensive linemen from the class of 2024, too.
Tyclean and Tycoolhill Luman, who are both listed as 6-foot-4, 240-pound three-star edge rushers out of Norland High School in Miami, Florida, made it out to see Thursday’s practice together.

The twin defensive linemen are originally from Canada but moved to Miami to further their collegiate football dreams before their sophomore seasons.
They’ve spent a season at Miami International Academy as sophomores, a season at Miami Jackson as juniors and will spend their senior seasons at Norland, where they’re expected to truly emerge as two of the top defensive ends in the class.
Tyclean and Tycoolhill share nearly matching offer sheets that feature the likes of Arkansas, Auburn, Cincinnati, FAU, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Liberty, Louisville, Miami, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Pitt, Rutgers, South Carolina, Syracuse, Temple, USF, West Virginia and Western Kentucky.
Pitt jumped into the mix for the Tyclean and Tycoolhill early last month, with Charlie Partridge extending an offer to both back on Feb. 4, and it progressed quickly to a visit.
After Tyclean won defensive MVP honors at the Under Armour Next Series Camp earlier this month, he told The Athletic’s Manny Navarro that Pitt is one of the teams pursuing him the hardest. Both Tyclean and Tycoolhill are priorities.
And it’s easy to see why Pitt is so high on the talented Canadian pass rushers, too.
Tyclean was a star on the defensive line, racking up 63 tackles, 26 tackles for loss, 12 sacks and an interception last season.
247Sports rates him as the 878th-ranked recruit in the class (62nd-ranked edge rusher and the 114th-ranked recruit from Florida) while Rivals rates him as the 39th-ranked strongside defensive end and 78th-ranked recruit from Florida.
Tycoolhill lined up on the other side of his brother, racking up 58 tackles, 29 tackles for loss and 13 sacks of his own — providing the other half of the star-studded duo.
247Sports rates him as the 746th-ranked recruit in the class (55th-ranked edge rusher and the 101st-ranked recruit from Florida) while Rivals rates him as the 25th-ranked weakside defensive end and the 73rd-ranked recruit from Florida.
Pitt has already landed a strong crop of defensive linemen in the class of 2024, including four-star Jahsear Whittington, three-star Francis Brewu, three-star Ty Yuhas and three-star Zachary Crothers, but it’s clear the twins are a priority.
It will be important to bring Tyclean and Tycoolhill back on campus as many times as possible in the lead-up to their commitments later this year, but it’s cleat Pitt is off to a strong start.
Tyclean and Tycoolhill seem to be a package deal at the next level, so Pitt’s staff will have to work twice as hard.
There has to be some kind of story behind “Tycoolhill,” right?
