Pitt Among Finalists for 2025 3-Star WR Visiting This Week



Pitt wide receiver target Giyahni Kontosis

Pitt has landed a couple of commitments from recruits in the state of Maryland, and there’s the potential for another on the horizon.

Giyahni Kontosis — a 6-foot-1, 190-pound three-star wide receiver from Rock Creek Christian Academy in Upper Marlboro, Md. — narrowed his recruitment to just six schools: Cincinnati, Indiana, Maryland, Pitt, Tennessee and South Carolina.

He cut Boston College, Buffalo, Charlotte, ECU, Georgia Tech, Marshall, Michigan State, Minnesota, Oregon, Syracuse, Toledo, Virginia Tech and West Virginia from contention.

Pitt has been recruiting Kontosis for a little over a year, with former running backs coach Andre Powell officially extending an offer last April, and it’s likely that JJ Laster and Lindsey Lamar have taken over his recruitment since.

Kontosis is scheduled to make his official visit to Pitt this weekend, and he’s already visited Cincinnati and Indiana, so a commitment could arrive soon.

Kontosis is a bit bigger than the wide receivers that Kade Bell and the offensive coaching staff have targeted this spring, but it’s easy to see why he’s a top target. He’s a true deep threat, possessing the speed and open-space agility that the coaching staff values.

Kontosis was a standout wide receiver for Rock Creek Christian as a junior, hauling in 52 receptions for 1,065 yards (20.5 yards per reception) and 11 touchdowns in just eight games.

247Sports rates Kontosis as the 528th-ranked recruit in the class (83rd-ranked wide receiver and 14th-ranked recruit from Maryland) while On3 rates him as the 481st-ranked recruit in the class (76th-ranked wide receiver and 14th-ranked recruit from Maryland).

Rivals rates him as the 92nd-ranked wide receiver and 17th-ranked recruit from Maryland — holding a 5.7 Rivals Rating.

It will be important for Kontosis to take his official visit this weekend, which would allow the coaching staff potentially the final chance to lock him into a commitment.

Pitt holds 12 commitments in the class of 2025:

Elnagmi, three-star wide receiver DaMarion Fowlkes (Olney, Md.), three-star tight end Max Hunt (Tampa, Fla.), offensive lineman Shep Turk (Jefferson Hills, Pa.), three-star wide receiver Tony Kinsler (Port Orange, Fla.), three-star wide receiver Bryce Yates (Chesterfield, Va.), three-star running back Ja’Kyrian Turner (Bushnell, Fla.) and three-star quarterback Mason Heintschel (Oregon, Ohio) offensively.

Three-star linebacker Justin Thompson (Olney, Md.), three-star defensive end Julian Anderson (Orlando, Fla.), four-star cornerback Elijah Dotson (Detroit, Mich.) and three-star defensive lineman Trevor Sommers (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) defensively.
