2024 3-Star Pitt DL Commit Ty Yuhas Impresses at 210ths Top 150 Camp



Fox Chapel, Pa. — I hadn’t seen Ty Yuhas live until I watched him take rep after rep after rep after rep at the 210ths Top 150 camp this weekend, and I get it. There’s a non-stop motor, but he has such a quickness.

In one-on-one reps with the offensive linemen, it was as if Yuhas was lined up with his hand in the turf every other rep. Inside, outside, off the edge, off the guard. And he was easily the best defensive lineman there.

“It was a good day, it was a great day,” Yuhas told PSN. “It was a really good day, a bunch of competition.

“I think I just had to show kinda why I’m a high-ranked recruit, why I’m committed to Pitt, and there were definitely some guys out there, and I think I showed it.”

Yuhas, who stands at 6-foot-3, 260 pounds, committed to Pitt back in February, when he only held offers from Pitt and Kent State, and he’s been locked into Pitt since then. He certainly showed why he’s committed to Pitt Sunday.

Yuhas has a lightning-quick first step, especially for someone who is a stout 260 pounds, but he has the strength and motor to work through opposing offensive lineman on every play. He was very hard to stop Sunday, even after taking rep after rep after rep.

Yuhas spent a lot of time in-between reps working with Central Catholic alumni, and current Pitt defensive lineman Elliot Donald. Donald was a coach Sunday at the Top 150 camp, but the two will be lining up next to each other in a couple of seasons.

Yuhas is capable of playing inside or outside, but he plans on giving Pitt a real solid, hard working defensive tackle.

Pitt sees him as a bit of both right now, a defensive end and interior lineman, but Yuhas likes it better on the inside. It’s easier.

“You don’t have to gain as much ground,” Yuhas said. “On the end, you’ve gotta get some ground first and then make your move, but when you’re inside, you can make your move now and you’re gone. … I think I play the run pretty well, too.”

There wasn’t an opportunity to play the run Sunday, but he will certainly have that opportunity in the fall on what should be a very good Central Catholic squad. The goal is clear. “State championship,” Yuhas said. “Go out with a bang. I don’t really got individual goals.” And the plan is to dominate the WPIAL.

I certainly wouldn’t bet against Yuhas breaking out as an insatiable defensive lineman, working across the entire line, as a senior at Central Catholic.

247Sports rates Yuhas as the 1,192nd-ranked recruit in the class (110th-ranked defensive lineman and 30th-ranked recruit from Pennsylvania) while On3 rates him as the 1,244th-ranked recruit in the class (118th-ranked defensive lineman and 34th-ranked recruit from Pennsylvania).

Rivals has him ranked as the 34th-ranked recruit from Pennsylvania — holding a 5.5 Rivals Rating.

But I think with a strong showing Sunday and an even stronger senior season, his stock should only rise between now and Signing Day in December. Yuhas last made it out to Pitt for his official visit last month, and it felt like home during his weekend with the program. It will feel even more like home when he’s actually working with his fellow defensive linemen in the room.
