Recapping Big Day Of Offers From Pitt Panther Football

Florida and Georgia are two of the most talent rich states for elite high school athletes in the country, so it should come as no surprise they’re at the top of Pitt football’s most offered states.

Over the last two days, the Pitt coaches have been killing two birds with one stone: going to see the players that are part of their Class of 2023 and also visiting other high schools in those areas, plus other areas on the East Coast.

While doing that on Tuesday, Pat Narduzzi and his staff extended offers to a number of players in different grade levels.
