Which Pitt Recruits Have Confirmed Official Visits This Weekend?



Pitt football.

Pitt has done a nice job of building the foundation for its class of 2025, and that’s partially due to the five commitments added from the first official visit weekend. But it’s not the end of it.

There are 12 commitments in the class before the final official visit weekend, and the Pitt coaching staff is on a roll. But official visit weekends wait for no one, so here’s who is scheduled to be in town this weekend. The final official visit window is loaded with high-priority recruits. There are some top-tier recruits in that mix.

Nate Sheppard was previously scheduled to visit Pitt, but that’s changed as the Panthers have added commitments this spring. And that likely won’t be the end of it.

PSN has reached out to the recruits scheduled to take official visits this weekend and will update the list as more information becomes available.
