Pitt FB Recruiting

Pitt’s First Batch of Official Visitors – Offensive Edition



It will be a very, very busy weekend at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex as the Pitt coaching staff hosts a number of talented recruits in the class of 2024 on official visits.

There are a plethora of four-star recruits, on both sides of the football, but we’re looking at just the offensive side of the football in this article.

Here’s a primer on which offensive recruits will be in Pittsburgh from June 1-3.

Trever Jackson — 6-foot-3, 185-pound four-star quarterback from West Orange High School in Winter Garden, Florida

Pitt was the first Power Five program to offer last June, and his recruiting process has blown up since then with offers from Boston College, Coastal Carolina, FAU, Houston, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Penn State, Pitt, Texas A&M, Tulane and West Virginia.

After a strong junior season and a blistering start to the camp tour this summer, Jackson is in higher demand than ever, and he’s one of Pitt’s top quarterback targets in the class.

247Sports rates Jackson as the 524th-ranked recruit in the class (32nd-ranked quarterback and 75th-ranked recruit from Florida) while On3 rates him as the 260th-ranked recruit in the class (17th-ranked quarterback and 36th-ranked recruit from Florida).

Jackson is also a finalist for the Elite 11 quarterback competition.

Nick Marsh — 6-foot-3, 200-pound four-star wide receiver from River Rouge High School in River Rouge, Michigan

Pitt snuck into the fold for elite wide receiver Nick Marsh over the last few months.

Marsh, a one-time Michigan State commit, holds offers from nearly 40 schools, and he will be taking official visits to Pitt, Penn State (June 9), Kansas (June 14), Auburn (June 16) and Michigan State (June 23).

His Top 12 in April featured Auburn, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Kansas, Penn State, UCLA, Ole Miss, Notre Dame, Oregon and Maryland.

247Sports rates Marsh as the 99th-ranked recruit in the class (15th-ranked wide receiver and the third-ranked recruit from Michigan) while Rivals rates him as the 44th-ranked recruit in the class (eighth-ranked wide receiver and third-ranked recruit from Michigan).

On3 rates Marsh as the 86th-ranked recruit in the class (15th-ranked wide receiver and the third-ranked recruit from Michigan).

Marsh plans to commit on July 7.

Adams reworked his Top 3 recently, including Alabama, Ohio State and South Carolina, but Pitt remained inside — after he removed the likes of Penn State and West Virginia.

He was in Pittsburgh recently for a spring practice, spending some time with 2024 commit DayDay Farmer, and his Pitt has the chance to use the momentum its built to make a strong impression on his first official visit.

247Sports rates Adams as the 183rd-ranked recruit in the class (27th-ranked wide receiver and the second-ranked recruit from Virginia) while On3 rates him as the 159th-ranked recruit in the class (27th-ranked wide receiver and the second-ranked recruit from Virginia).

Rivals rates him as the 33rd-ranked wide receiver and the third-ranked recruit from Virginia.

Adams plans to commit on July 13.

Eric Ingwerson

Eric Ingwerson — 6-foot-7, 235-pound three-star tight end from Papillion-La Vista High School in Papillion, Nebraska

Ingwerson visited Pitt for a spring practice in March, and he committed before he left. He wanted to reward the first Power Five school to extend him an offer, so when Pitt did, he committed.

He held offers from Northern Iowa and Northern Illinois when Pitt offered, and he’s since picked up an offer from in-state Nebraska. But an official visit to Pitt is his only scheduled trip.

247Sports rates Ingwerson as the 1,207th-ranked recruit in the class (129th-ranked athlete and the ninth-ranked recruit from Nebraska) while On3 rates him as the 39th-ranked tight end and seventh-ranked recruit from Nebraska.

Rivals hasn’t rated Ingwerson, but he holds a 5.5 Rivals Rating.

Mason Lindsay — 6-foot-7, 290-pound three-star offensive lineman from DeMatha Catholic in Hyattsville, Maryland

Pitt only offered Lindsay about a week and a half ago, but the relationship he’s be built with Andre Powell has allowed for a streamlined process.

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’s decided to make an official visit to Pitt — his first time heading out to Pittsburgh.

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.

Caleb Holmes — 6-foot-4, 290-pound our-star offensive lineman from Creekside High School in Fairburn, Georgia

Pitt added BJ Williams from Creekside High in the class of 2o23, and if the recruiting process goes well, it will add another top lineman from Creekside.

Pitt was the second Power Five school to extend Holmes an offer back in 2021, and he’s since added offers from Auburn, Cincinnati, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Memphis, Mississippi State, Missouri, Tennessee and UCF.

As of now he has official visits scheduled for Pitt (June 1-3) and Auburn (June 8-10).

247Sports rates Holmes as the 183rd-ranked recruit in the class (seventh-ranked interior offensive lineman and the 25th-ranked recruit from Georgia) while On3 rates him as the 258th-ranked recruit in the class (17th-ranked interior offensive lineman and the 31st-ranked recruit from Georgia).

Rivals rates him as the 14th-ranked interior offensive lineman and the 51st-ranked recruit from Georgia.

Jaden Lafontant — 6-foot-4, 295-pound offensive lineman from Brunswick School in Greenwich, Connecticut

Lafontant was another recruit who received his first Power Five offer from Pitt back in January, and he holds offers from Boston College, Illinois, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Old Dominion, Rhode Island, Temple and Vanderbilt.

The big Connecticut native is a late riser in the class of 2024, and his official visit will be the second time he’s made it out to Pittsburgh this year — following a spring practice visit in March.

None of the major recruiting services have rated Lafontant yet, but as he’s received a majority of his Power Five offers over the last month, his rise will continue.

An earlier version of this story listed Devyn Zahursky as an official visitor from June 1-3. He told PSN he will no longer be taking an official visit.
