Pitt Earns Top 4 Ranking from 3-Star OL Ahead of Official Visit



Building its future offensive line is one of the more underlying, but essential foundational aspects for the Pitt football program and the Panthers are making a push for an athletic three-star lineman from New Jersey.

That pursuit from Pitt has been felt by Chris Vigna and he’s responded by placing Pitt in his top four schools as of now, he tells Pittsburgh Sports Now.

RM LAW, P.C. is a boutique litigation law firm with a national practice dedicated to protecting shareholders’ interests and promoting improved corporate governance practices.

This comes after Vigna made a trip to visit Pitt over the past weekend where he had the chance to further his connection with the coaching staff, including conversations with head coach Pat Narduzzi, offensive line coach Jeremy Darveau and offensive coordinator Kade Bell.

“I was able to tour campus to see the new academic and football facilities, meet the new coaching staff, and watch spring practice,” Vigna said.

Ever since Darveau and the new coaching staff was hired, they have formed a bond with the 6-foot-5, 295-pound athlete.

“I have a great relationship with the coaches, they have been very active with me since the new offensive staff was brough on,” Vigna said.

Pitt has dialed in on Vigna for what he brings to the gridiron with his athleticism up front.

“Since the new staff was hired, they have been pursuing me heavily,” Vigna said.  “They run an outside zone offense that requires athletic offensive linemen that can move, so they feel like I fit in well with that.”

The Bergen Catholic High School product received an offer from the Panthers on Feb. 8 and he then quickly moved to lock in an official visit with the Panthers from June 13-15.

Vigna’s early relationship with Pitt and the overall esteem that the university has made for an easy decision to return back to Pittsburgh.

“Pitt has a great combination of academics and football, which is what I want,” he said. “I have a good relationship with the coaching staff and the football facilities are awesome.”

While getting a chance to see Pitt’s facilities this past weekend, Vigna said he wants to see more of the student-athlete experience.

“My official visit will allow me to spend a couple of days with the players to see their daily life, which is an important factor for me.”

Outside of Pitt, Vigna holds offers from Boston College, Rutgers, Duke, Syracuse, Virginia Tech, West Virginia, Cincinnati and others.

He will also take an official visit to Boston College from June 7-9.
