Pitt Makes Top 5 For 2024 3-Star LB Trent Carter



Pitt’s most recent commitment came last week from 2024 3-star linebacker Davin Brewton, but the Panthers are looking to still add more linebackers to this year’s recruiting class.

One of the players that they have their eye on announced Monday morning that Pitt is one of his finalists.

2024 3-star inside linebacker Trent Carter released a Top Five of Pitt, Louisville, Memphis, Coastal Carolina and Appalachian State. Carter (6’3″, 220-pounds) attends The Bolles School in Jacksonville, Florida and received his offer from Pitt back in February.

Pittsburgh Sports Now caught up with Carter this morning on his way to school and had a quick conversation about his finalists and where things stand with Pitt.

“I’ve been talking with Coach Manalac and I’m trying to set up a visit to go up there right now,” said Carter. “I’ve been doing some research on them, and I really like the program. Pitt is the only program that is connected and has a real relationship with an NFL team. I think that’s a really cool aspect. Pitt just seems like a very interesting place, and I want to check them out more. Coach Manalac seems like a really good coach and is a really good guy. I was actually talking to him yesterday about getting up there for an official visit. He was sending me dates about coming up there to come watch the Steelers practice. He would like to see me and meet me in person before we get super serious about officials.”

“I’m primarily an inside linebacker but I can also play outside linebacker but that’s not what my coach needs me to play now. I believe that I play fast, I play violent and am a player that makes good reads on the inside. My primary thing is to read the center/guard and then getting downhill and tackling the running back. As far as in college, I feel like I’m a very versatile linebacker. You don’t really get to see that with a lot of my film because I haven’t played outside that much in games because that’s not where my team needs me. In the spring, I’ve been playing some outside linebacker and getting into coverage and believe that’s a role that I could play in college. It will really depend on where the team needs me.”

In terms of a timeline for a decision, Carter tells PSN that right now, it’s likely to be at the end of June. Currently he has official visits set up in June at Louisville and Coastal Carolina and is currently working to set one up at Pitt.

“I hope to make my decision in late June or possibly early July,” said Carter. “That would be ideal, but stuff might happen before or after that.”

He doesn’t seem to be that naturally athletic but plays with a lot of heart. Also, gotta like that he seems to have a knack for forcing turnovers.
