Pitt 4-Star OL Target Commits to Big 12 Program



Pitt offensive line target Chastan Brown.

One of the highest-rated offensive line targets in the class of 2025 has pledged himself to a Big 12 program.

Chastan Brown — a 6-foot-9, 260-pound four-star tackle from Northside in Warner Robbins, Ga. — committed to UCF live on Instagram Thursday afternoon, picking the Knights over a list of finalists that included Georgia State, Houston, Louisville, North Carolina State, Pitt, UCF and West Virginia.

He has previously cut Boston College, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Duke, Georgia Southern, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Iowa State, Liberty, Memphis, Troy, Tulane, UAB, USF and Wake Forest, among others, from contention.

Brown was slated to take an official visit to Pitt last month, but the visit never occurred — or at least wasn’t able to be confirmed by Pittsburgh Sports Now. He took official visits to UCF (May 31) and Louisville (June 7) earlier this summer.

It would’ve been a nice addition to the class, but there’s still one more name to watch this week.

Pitt is looking to add one more offensive lineman in the class, with two interior linemen and a tackle currently committed, and three-star Jordan Fields (Houston, Tx.) is set to announce his commitment Friday. He’s one to watch.

Pitt holds 21 commitments in the class of 2025, with an unclaimed Pat Signal out there:

The Panthers have landed three-star quarterback Mason Heintschel (Oregon, Ohio), three-star running back Ja’Kyrian Turner (Bushnell, Fla.), three-star athlete Synkwan Smith (Roswell, Ga.), three-star wide receiver Kha’leal Sterling (Miami, Fla.), three-star wide receiver DaMarion Fowlkes (Olney, Md.), three-star wide receiver Tony Kinsler (Port Orange, Fla.), three-star wide receiver Bryce Yates (Chesterfield, Va.), three-star tight end Max Hunt (Tampa, Fla.), Shep Turk (Jefferson Hills, Pa.), Torian Chester (Albany, Ga.) and Akram Elnagmi (Loughborough, England), offensively.

And three-star edge Denim Cook (Columbus, Ohio), three-star defensive end Julian Anderson (Orlando, Fla.), three-star defensive lineman Trevor Sommers (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.), three-star linebacker Emmanuel Taylor (Virginia Beach, Va.), three-star linebacker Justin Thompson (Olney, Md.), three-star safety Joshua Guerrier (Ocoee, Fla.), three-star defensive back Cole Woodson (Haymarket, Va.), three-star cornerback Shawn Lee (Harrisburg, Pa.), four-star cornerback Mason Alexander (Fishers, Ind.) and four-star cornerback Elijah Dotson (Detroit, Mich.) defensively.

It’s ok the 3 stars finalist are Kansas, Houston, Toledo and Pitt. Unfortunately Pitt isn’t competing with mid tier or high level power schools we’re back in with the bottom feeder power conference schools or mid majors. Spin it all you want but when the big ten and sec say no thanks we’ll be lucky to land in the b12 at this point. Couldn’t be a worse time for the program to go backwards.

I think Pitt doesnt leave the ACC and they will be competing with the next batch of group of 5 schools (JMU, Charlotte, type schools) that will reach the Power 4 level once the top ACC teams decide to move on! Basketball will need to carry the conference anyways! And recruiting wise, they are who they are! These are guys Pitt actually have a chance to get! Pitt can offer as many 4-5 stars as they want, thats not their punching power!
