If there’s anything that Cameron Monteiro offers a college football team, it’s versatility. He’s a quarterback, running back, wide receiver and defensive back right now. And he’s pretty good at all four.
Monteiro — a 6-foot-3, 170-pound three-star wide receiver from Brockton High in Brockton, Massachusetts — has attracted a lot of recent attention, and that includes Pitt.
He announced that he will be taking an official visit to Pitt from June 8-10.

Monteiro has picked up offers from Akron, Boston College, Buffalo, Connecticut, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Old Dominion, Pitt, Temple, Vanderbilt, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest.
Pitt was the second school to extend Monteiro an official offer, with Tim Salem offering him back on April 27, 2022. The relationship hasn’t featured any visits to this point, so his trip to Pittsburgh will be crucial.
Monteiro was a true triple threat as a junior at Brockton, completing 20-of-32 pass attempts (63%) for 337 yards and two touchdowns and racking up 103 carries for 1,064 yards (10.3 yards per carry) and 15 touchdowns. He also added seven receptions for 149 yards (21.3 yards per catch) and three touchdowns.
He was more of a wide receiver as a sophomore, hauling in 45 receptions for 731 yards (16.2 yards per) and eight touchdowns — while adding 33 carries for 258 yards (7.8 yards per) and three touchdowns and racking up 30 tackles and an interception.
247Sports rates Monteiro as the 778th-ranked recruit in the class (98th-ranked wide receiver and third-ranked recruit from Massachusetts). On3 rates Monteiro as the 746th-ranked recruit in the class (108th-ranked wide receiver and third-ranked recruit from Massachusetts).
Rivals hasn’t yet rated Monteiro, but that will certainly change.
Monteiro is coming off an official visit to Virginia last weekend, and after he makes it out to Pittsburgh this weekend, he will take an official visit to Kentucky the following weekend.
It appears that the biggest competition for Monteiro will come from the Wildcats.
He will be joined on his official visit to Pitt by a pair of running backs in four-star Yasin Willis and three-star commit Juelz Goff and a few offensive linemen in three-star Ryan Cory, three-star Zafir Stewart and three-star commit Adham Abouraya.
Pitt currently holds a commitment from four-star wide receiver DayDay Farmer. Pitt received a visit from four-star Nick Marsh last weekend and will welcome Farmer, three-star Triston Ward, three-star Zy’Marion Lang and three-star Ricky Johnson later in June.
