Pitt Extends Offer to Local 2026 LB Daiveon Taylor
The class of 2026 is still quite a ways away from having to make any sort of decisions. In fact, any offers at this point in their recruitment is early.
But Pitt has certainly noticed Daiveon Taylor. Taylor — a 6-foot-2, 215-pound linebacker from Bishop Canevin High in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania — picked up an offer from Pitt Friday.
Pitt joined Miami (Oh.), Marshall, Penn State, Syracuse and West Virginia in offering the class of 2026 recruit.

The Pitt coaching staff isn’t able to reach out to recruits in the class of 2026 at this point, but they can talk to recruit’s coaches.
So, Cory Sanders informed the Bishop Canevin coaches that Pitt was extending an offer and they relayed it to Taylor — his sixth Division I offer.
Taylor is a big, well-built linebacker coming off his freshman season at Bishop Canevin, and he made an impact across the offensive and defensive side of the football.
He recorded 76 tackles (62 solo), 23 tackles for loss, a team-high 17 sacks, forced two fumbles, recovered four and broke up two passes to help lead the Crusaders to a 12-2 season.
His strong freshman season earned him MaxPrep’s Freshman All-American honors.
The major recruiting services hasn’t rated Taylor yet, considering his class is still so far away, but he will likely be a highly-ranked recruit in the class.
Taylor is a recruit to continue watching as his high school career unfolds.
