Pitt does not currently hold a quarterback commitment in the class of 2024, but that will likely change very soon.
Trever Jackson is in Pittsburgh for his official visit as of typing this, and Henry Hasselbeck told Pittsburgh Sports Now that his official visit will begin on June 22 — the final weekend in June.
Hasselbeck — a 6-foot-3, 170-pound three-star quarterback from Xaverian Brothers High School in Westwood, Massachusetts — is currently committed to Maryland to play lacrosse, but his football recruitment has heated up in recent months.
He’s scheduled to take official visits to Michigan State (June 2), Boston College (June 9), UAB (June 19) and Pittsburgh (June 22).
The son of former NFL quarterback Matt Hasselbeck has received offers from Army, Boston College, Bowling Green, Connecticut, Dartmouth, East Carolina, Fordham, Georgia Tech, Harvard, Holy Cross, Liberty, Michigan State, Pitt, Rice, UAB and West Michigan.
Pitt jumped into the fold for Hasselbeck back in January as Frank Cignetti Jr. made a visit to Xaverian Brothers to offer him in person, and the relationship has advanced since. Hasselbeck made a visit to Pitt last Thursday to check out the facilities and watch the Steelers’ OTAs.
Hasselbeck is a top-class athlete, committed to powerhouse Maryland as a midfielder in lacrosse, but he also possesses a powerful arm, excellent touch on his throws and the processing ability to pick apart opposing defenses.
247Sports rates Hasselbeck as the 51st-ranked quarterback and the fourth-ranked recruit from Massachusetts. Neither On3 nor Rivals have rated him yet, but he does hold a 5.5 Rivals Rating.
It would appear that Boston College offers the stiffest competition in Pitt’s pursuit of Hasselbeck. His family history with BC isn’t anything to brush off, and Michigan State will certainly provide tough competition.
As previously stated, Pitt does not have a quarterback committed in the class of 2024, but Hasselbeck, Jackson and three-star Miles O’Neill are winding down as Pitt’s top targets.
