Hamilton Southeastern head coach Michael Kelly described his star receiver as “a tough kid, he’s hard to defend, he’s never guarded. He goes up and makes plays.”
Currently, 3-star recruit Cameron Monteiro (Brockton, Massachusetts) is the only wide receiver in Pitt’s Class of 2024, after losing 4-star recruit Day Day Farmer.
