2024 3-Star DL Commit Ty Yuhas Envisioned Himself at Pitt During Official Visit



When teams have official visit weekends, un-committed players get most of the attention. However, players that are already committed are a big part of the weekend as well.

National Signing Day isn’t until December which means that other programs could be trying to flip players or things can change in the relationship between the two sides when the player decided that he wants to open back up his recruitment.

This past weekend, four members of Pitt’s class of 2024 were in town strengthening their bond with Pitt coaches as well as interacting with the uncommitted recruits, who down the road could be their future teammates.

One of the committed players that made their Pitt official visit was Central Catholic three-star defensive lineman Ty Yuhas, who has been committed to Pitt since Feb. 9.

Pittsburgh Sports Now spoke this morning with Yuhas about the weekend and what it is like being at Pitt as someone that has already made his college decision.

“Being there this weekend, in my mind, it’s like I’ll be sitting in this chair in this meeting room next year,” said Yuhas. “This is where I’m going to be at, this is where I’m going to be practicing. I’m thinking that these are the coaches that I will be coached by, and the Pitt players are the guys that I’m going to be hanging out with. From an evaluation standpoint, I’m just thinking, do I like the coaches? Do I like the campus? Stuff like that.

“100%, the whole time, even though I’m committed, the Pitt coaches are still recruiting you and strengthening our bond. Honestly, the Pitt coaches and I have built a really good relationship since I committed back in February. Me, coach Partridge, coach Sanders, coach Narduzzi, we’re all solid.”

During his time in Oakland, although he’s a player, Yuhas admits that he was acting as a recruiter for the Panthers, trying his best to answer any questions or do what he can to steer player’s decisions toward Pitt.

“There were guys there that I know the coaching staff wanted and I was for sure trying to sell Pitt to them,” said Yuhas.

Being that he made his college decision a few months ago, it’s allowed Yuhas to sit back and watch as Narduzzi and his staff have put together a highly nationally ranked recruiting class. Currently, Pitt’s class of 2024 has 19 confirmed members and it’s ranked No. 14 by and No. 16 by 247Sports. The high level of recruits that Pitt is bringing in not only excites the fan base but future Panther players as well.

“It’s awesome what’s going on. Watching them build this, I really think that this is going to be a special class for us. Watching them build it up since I was the fourth player to commit, now we’re up to 21 players. It’s really cool to watch what’s being developed here at Pitt.”

Yuhas is one of 11 defensive players currently committed to Pitt: 3-star linebacker Jeremiah Marcelin, 4-star linebacker Cam Lindsey, 3-star defensive back Nigel Maynard, 3-star defensive back Davion Pritchard, 3-star defensive back Allen Bryant, 3-star linebacker Davin Brewton, 3-star Tayshawn Banks, 3-star defensive end Zachary Crothers, 3-star defensive tackle Francis Brewu and 4-star defensive tackle Jahsear Whittington.
