There weren’t as many standout performances from the Pitt commits in the class of 2024 this weekend as there were last weekend, but there were certainly some standout performers.
As the recruits in the class of 2024 really get into the bulk of their senior seasons, the performances should only get bigger, too. So, let’s take a look at some of those standout performers over the weekend.
Julian Dugger — three-star quarterback from Penn Hills High School in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Dugger followed up his season-opening victory with another strong performance, leading Penn Hills to a 28-0 victory over Norwin High. He scored two touchdowns, one long pass and one long run, and he gashed the Knights’ defense all night with his legs. It’s been a very solid start to Dugger’s senior season as he continued to evolve as a passer and a runner.

Juelz Goff — three-star running back from Central York High in York, Pennsylvania
Juelz only ran for 130 yards and two touchdowns in a big showdown against Cumberland Valley, scoring all 14 of Central York’s points, and his electric senior season continued in a big way. Expect many more performances like this one.
Yasin Willis — four-star running back from St. Joseph’s Regional High in Montvale, New Jersey
It was another big week for both of Pitt’s running back commits in the class of 2024, with Willis having another big performance in a win. At the half, Willis had racked up 61 yards and a touchdown in a 49-14 win over Cass Tech.

Jahsear Whittington — four-star defensive tackle from Imhotep Charter in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Whittington was a monster in Imhotep’s 35-0 win over the Haverford School, recording a sack and returning an interception for a touchdown. The performance perfectly encapsulated Whittington’s athleticism on the defensive line, and why the Pitt coaching staff is excited.

Allen Bryant — three-star cornerback from St. Thomas Aquinas in Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Bryant didn’t break a huge return in a Week 2 win over Fort Myers High, but he did rack up a few tackles and took two punt returns for 30 yards.
Eric Ingwerson — three-star tight end from Papillion-La Vista High in Papillion, Nebraska
No catches for Ingwerson this week, but he showcased his ability to be an impact blocker attached to the end of the line. He pancaked three defenders as Papillion La-Vista rolled to a 28-7 win over Papillion La-Vista South.
Jeremiah Marcelin — three-star linebacker from Miami-Norland High in Miami, Florida
The hot start for Miami-Norland High continued with a huge 66-0 win over Carol City, and Marcelin continued to make an impact in the backfield. He recorded a couple of tackles and a tackle for loss.
Cameron Lindsey — four-star linebacker from Aliquippa High in Aliquippa, Pennsylvania
Lindsey was an offensive and defensive star in a 37-19 win over Aliquippa over the weekend, scoring a 30-yard rushing touchdown and having another 64-yard touchdown called back. The two-way star will be a linebacker at Pitt, but he will continue to flash that versatility over the course of his senior season.
