“I would like to begin by thanking Pitt for giving me an opportunity to play baseball at the next level,” Slogik wrote in a statement on Twitter. “After much consideration, I’ve decided to reopen and refocus my recruiting to football and dual sport opportunities. I wish Pitt the best of luck.”
Slogik committed to Pitt in August 2022 after playing two seasons for Warwick High School in Lititz, Pa. He helped them win the 2022 PIAA 6A State Title and earned First-Team honors in Section 1 in the Lancaster-Lebanon League.
He transferred to Bishop McDevitt High School, just outside of Harrisburg, Pa. and is a dual sport athlete, playing tight end and as an edge rusher on the defensive line for their football team.
Slogik made five catches for 64 yards and two touchdowns as a tight end, while he made 16 total tackles and 6.5 tackles for loss as an edge rusher. He also played a role in Bishop McDevitt winning the PIAA 4A State Title against Aliquippa in 2022.
247sports ranks Slogik as the No. 38 player in the state in the Class of 2024 and he holds 14 Division I offers as of Thursday. This includes Power 5 schools in Syracuse and Maryland, American schools in East Carolina and Temple, MAC schools in Akron, Kent State and Toledo, Sun Belt schools in Coastal Carolina, James Madison and Old Dominion and Ivy League schools in Dartmouth and Penn.
