2024 3-Star OL Mason Lindsay Building Good Relationship With Pitt



As Marcus Minor entered the NFL Draft last month, Mason Lindsay took notice. He didn’t hold an offer from Pitt then, but he knew where Minor had played the last few seasons.

It took about a month, but Lindsay — a 6-foot-7, 300-pound three-star offensive lineman from DeMatha Catholic in Hyattsville, Maryland — finally picked up an offer from Andre Powell and Pitt this week.

“My relationship with Pitt has been pretty good,” Lindsay told PSN. “I talk to coach Andre Powell the most.”

Lindsay has picked up offers from Boston College, Charlotte, Maine, Maryland, Pitt, USF, Virginia Tech and West Virginia throughout his recruiting process, and as his process heats up, he will need to determine where he fits best.

He hasn’t been to Pittsburgh yet, but he’s pretty familiar with Pitt. He watched Minor sign a minicamp deal with the Baltimore Ravens last month, but he’s also been able to watch Pitt play over the years. He’s felt a good vibe from Pitt, seeing his aggressive yet conservative style of play mesh well with what he’s seen.

And as a junior at DeMatha last season, serving as a versatile piece across the offensive line, lining up inside and outside, Lindsay used his speed and power to overwhelm opponents. It’s his ability to maul opponents that has attracted major college interest.

“I like to wait to see what my opponent is going to throw at me before making a move, but when I make it, it’s going to be hard and strong,” Lindsay said.

The major recruiting services haven’t rated Lindsay yet, but he does hold a 5.5 Rivals Rating. And if he’s able to put together a strong summer, he should only rise on all three recruiting services going forward.

Lindsay hasn’t been very vocal about where he’s visited so far this spring, but he said that he plans to take a visit to Pittsburgh very soon.

Pitt has landed commitments from three-star offensive linemen Adham Abouraya and Jiavani Cooley, both from Pennsylvania, this cycle, and there will certainly be another lineman or two added to the class.
