Pat Narduzzi Breaks Down Pitt Class of 2024 – Late Editions



Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi.

Pitt added 19 signees in December, offensive and defensive, solidifying the bulk of the class of 2024, but it wasn’t done there.

Pitt landed a commitment from Tyreek Robinson, a three-star wide receiver from Shreveport, Louisiana, last month. But it wasn’t a surprise. He was the expected signee Wednesday morning. Malachi Thomas was a surprise.

Thomas, a three-star tight end from Thomasville, Georgia, wasn’t in the plans until the Panthers announced his commitment early Wednesday morning. It was him and Robinson — the two late commitments in the class of 2024.

Robinson was the second Pitt wide receiver in the class of 2024, and Thomas is the first — and only — tight end in the class.

Tyreek Robinson — 5-foot-10, 170-pound wide receiver from Shreveport, LA/Evangel Christian Academy 

“The first guy is Tyreek Robinson, a 5-foot-10, 170-pound wide receiver from Shreveport, Louisiana. Evangel Christian Academy, very successful high school down there. Coach Bell and coach Underwood loved this guy’s speed, athletic ability, the way he changes direction. He came on an official visit with his dad Joe, had a great weekend here in Pittsburgh with him, had a great home visit with him down in Louisiana. I don’t know how many people have been down to Shreveport, but his dad brought home a box of donuts from Southern Donuts. And if you ever go down that way, wow, okay, if you like hot Krispy Kreme donuts, this one’s even better. Southern-made donuts, I should say. We’re excited about Tyreek in this class and just a super kid, super family and our receiver room will get better by having him.”

Malachi Thomas — 6-foot-4, 235-pound tight end from Thomasville, Georgia/Thomasville County Central High School 

“The second guy is Malachi Thomas. A big 6-4, 235-pound tight end from Thomasville, Georgia — Thomasville County Central High School. Late addition. I’d kinda call him as late as a SirVocea Dennis that we looked at. Coach Underwood and coach Bell did a great job of digging him out down in southwest Georgia. We wanted a young tight end in this class, they’re hard to find, but we think we found a diamond in the rough in Malachi. Everybody down there loves him from the cafeteria ladies — really did a deep dive on him and every lady in the building was like, ‘That’s that my favorite guy.’ They won a ton of games down there and a 6-A championship down there as well, so just an unbelievable kid. Got a smile on his face whenever you talk to him.”

Everyone knows that while Pitt doesn’t recruit Top 5 or top 10 classes every year they do recruit better than most and this call is top 30 or in that neighborhood so I’m not concerned with the players, but now the coaches need to elevate the play.
