Montour Wide Receiver Turns Heads at Pitt Camp

Montour wide receiver Daniel Batch

Over the weekend, WPIAL prospects and other talent from across the region convened at Pitt’s football camps to showcase their skills and increase their exposure to a multitude of schools. One player that made a strong impression on those in attendance was Montour wide receiver Daniel Batch and he was grateful to compete in front of the Pitt coaching staff.

“Everybody around here would love to play for the hometown team. Pitt shows that certain toughness known around here,” Batch told Pittsburgh Sports Now.

The Class of 2025 Montour product stood out amongst his position group, registering a 4.5 40-yard dash, which clocked in as fastest out of the wide receivers.

As Batch competed in one-on-one drills and 7v7, he aimed to display some of the things he’s been working on.

“My speed, but also how much better my hips have gotten,” Batch said.

Several schools took notice as Batch put his repertoire on display, including the host program. While he awaits a potential offer from the Panthers, offensive coordinator Kade Bell, wide receivers coach JJ Laster and running backs coach Lindsey Lamar provided feedback, including where Batch could fit in as a Panther.

“They told me they like me as a running back for them, who can go out and run routes too,” Batch said.

For Batch, his versatility allows him to slot in anywhere on the field as he ranges from wide receiver to running back and safety on the defensive side of the ball.

“I feel like I can play it all. Wherever they need me on the field, I can get it down with speed and physicality,” he said.

Two schools that have already extended offers to Batch also watched closely, but a new school also made it known that they liked what they saw.

“Buffalo hit me up after and said they will keep in touch,” Batch said. “Fordham and Akron were there and I already have offers from them so they were coaching me up.”

As Batch’s camp season continues, he’ll look to add to his D-I offer sheet that includes Fordham and Akron, along with Toledo, RMU, Stony Brook, Towson, Maine, New Hampshire, Bryant and Navy.

Great kid, Great family, too.
He just started playing football recently for Montour over the last few seasons.
He is an under the radar recruit. I have seen him play numerous times and he is fast and a strong runner after the catch. He matched up well with the Aliquippa D1 kids last year. The offers will pick up for him during the summer and fall.
Your comment fell flat since you had no idea the back story. Nice try though.

so great backstory but the facts are the facts. MAYBE his offers will pick up and if so that’s not good for Pitt.

Pitt has not offered him, yet. He participated in their camp.
PSU has camps all the time for players they do not offer. You know that.
We will see how things play out.

agreed, but the facts are he’s new to football and he might get more offers if he gets better or not. We will see how it plays out
