Monteiro picked up offers from Akron, Boston College, Buffalo, Connecticut, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Old Dominion, Pitt, Temple, Vanderbilt, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest prior to naming Pitt, Virginia and Kentucky as finalists.
Pitt was the second school to extend Monteiro an official offer, with Tim Salem offering him back on April 27, 2022.
The versatile athlete, who plays quarterback, running back, wide receiver and defensive back at Brockton, is being looked at as a wide receiver at Pitt.
He 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.
Pitt’s last recruit from Massachusetts was 4-star defensive end Samuel Okunlola, also from Brockton, Massachusetts.
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 747th-ranked recruit in the class (108th-ranked wide receiver and third-ranked recruit from Massachusetts).
Pitt currently holds a commitment from four-star wide receiver DayDay Farmer in the class of 2024, who just made an official visit to West Virginia and UCF and Pitt later this month, and Cameron Monteiro would be a nice, versatile addition to the class.
