2013 printable Pitt Recruiting class

PITT 2013 Verbal Commits 1)-OT Carson Baker, Fairborn (OH), 2 star- Baker is a developmental size prospect capable of dominating as a run blocker once he is able to clamp on defenders; flashes good upper body playing strength and strong hands. Has the size with enough athleticism for the offensive tackle position at the major level of competition 2)-K Chris Blewitt, Alexandria (VA), 3 star-Chris competed at Kohl's Eastern Showcase Camp in 2012 and was dominant. He seems to handle pressure very well and kicks a clean field goal off the ground. The ball does not hook or fade when he hits it clean 3)-OT Dorian Johnson, Belle Vernon (PA), 4star-Johnson is an O-line prospect who should probably be getting a little more buzz than even he is already getting. He possesses excellent height and looks to be a well put together big man. 4)-ATH Tyler Boyd, Clairton (PA), 4star-Boyd has been employed as a utility weapon on offense, splitting time between wide receiver and running back. He is a really gifted athlete with a long, sleek frame and good height. He lacks significant bulk and strength so it would be hard to project him as a pure RB. Projected at WR at college level. 5)-OG Alexander Officer, Rochester (NY), 3star-He plays with the quickness and playing strength needed to dominate at his present level of competition; is very productive playing the tackle position however his size and athleticism appear better suited for the offensive guard spot at the major level of competition 6)-OT Aaron Reese, Chambersburg (PA), 3 star-Reese is a tough battler who is capable of dominating as a run blocker. Has the size and athleticism for the offensive tackle position at the major level of competition. His frame appears capable supporting additional body mass over time. 7)-ATH Terrish Webb, Clairton (PA), 3 star-Webb could line up as a safety or wide receiver at the next level, but he certainly makes most of his plays on offense as a playmaker in a scheme that does not throw the ball too often. He has adequate size and is a very natural athlete. 8)-TE Scott Orndoff, Pittsburgh (PA), 3 star-Orndoff is a prospect with very good size for a tight end at this stage and looks to have a frame capable of supporting a good deal more mass with time in a college weight program. A under rated prospect, has the ability to be a major factor for Pitt in the future. 9)-DT Justin Moody, Philadelphia (PA), 3 star-Moody plays on both sides of the ball in high school, but he belongs on the defensive side of the ball and while he will move around the D-Line in the long run he looks best suited as more strictly an interior player. 10)-DE Shakir Soto, Wilkes Barre (PA), 3 star-Soto is a physical defensive end prospect. He looks to possess good size with a nice wingspan for his build. He plays quite a bit from a 'two'-point stance, but looks best suited to play with his hand on the ground and shows a better get-off when he does 11)-RB Rachild Ibrahim, Gaithersburg (MD), 3 star-Ibrahim runs with the slashing style and playing speed which allows him to rip off huge gains once in the open field. Has the size and athleticism for the running back position at the major level of competition; his frame appears capable of supporting additional bulk over time. 12)-WR Zach Challingsworth, McDonald (PA)- 3 star-Challingsworth is a play maker with deceptive speed. Has the size and athleticism for the wide receiver position at the major level of competition. His frame appears capable of supporting additional body mass over time however care should be taken not to compromise his quickness and playing speed. 13)-OT Jaryd Jones-Smith, Philadelphia (PA)- 3 star-Jones-Smith is a developmental prospect with good upper body playing strength; will need to improve his immediate explosion when run blocking. Has the size and athleticism for the offensive tackle position at the major level of competition. 14)WR -Jester Weah, Madison (WIS), 3 star-Weah is an intriguing guy to evaluate because he is big and athletic and such a mismatch against this level of competition that it can be difficult to gauge just how good he is. He has great height with long arms and in this offense is essentially a jump ball reciever. 15)-DE James Conner, Erie (PA), 3 star-Conner is a defensive end prospect with solid size at this stage and his frame should be able to support more good needed mass with time in a college weight program. He has a solid get-off. He needs to watch his pad level and displays some tightness 16)-CB Titus Howard, Clairton (PA), 3 star-A bit of a sleeper on the recruiting trail, Howard has size and athleticism that is attractive on the perimeter. Tall, lengthy with a lot of room to fill out making safety a possibility in the future as well. Runs well for his size. Good pursuit speed and effort 17)-DT Tyrique Jarrett, Pittsburgh (PA), 3 star-You don't need to hesitate to slap the big boy label on Jarrett as quite simply this is a big boy. He possesses plenty of size for play in the trenches and for a kid well into the three-hundreds he looks to actually carry himself well. 18)-K Ryan Winslow, Windsor (PA), 3star-Ryan has a great punting frame. His long legs should help him create good hang-times in the years to come. He does need to improve his ball flight and hang-times in order to play early. 19)-ILB Luke Maclean, Grand Blac (MICH), 3 star-MacLean is a strong, physical athlete who plays with his hand in the dirt as a defensive end and linebacker from a two point stance, both "on" and "off" the line. Although we see change up potential as a DE (pass rusher), it appears his size and athleticism to be projected as in inside linebacker. 20)-ATH Reggie Green, Cranford (NJ), 3star-Green is a productive dual-threat quarterback with marginal passing skills and will likely get recruited as an athlete. Impressive physical athlete with a large, muscular frame that has length and room to fill out making safety or even outside linebacker a possibility on defense or receiver and a tight end 21)-ILB Matt Galambos, Haverford (PA), 3star-Galambos plays outside and off the edges however we feel his size and athleticism are better suited for the inside linebacker position at the major level of competition; his frame appears capable of supporting additional bulk over time provided quickness and playing speed are not compromised. 22)-TE Devon Edwards, Columbus (OH), 3star-Edwards is a two-way player at the high school level, lining up at both tight end and defensive end. Regardless of which side of the ball he plays on he possesses very good size. He has good height and looks to have a thick sturdy build. 23)-TE Jaymar Parrish, Monroeville (PA), 3star-Parrish is a prospect with marginal size for a tight end and like in high school he will need to be able to move around and line up in different spots as he does not fit the mold of a more traditional tight end. 24)-S Tony Harper, Toledo (OH),3star-Harper shows a lot of promise when evaluating as a college safety prospect. This young man's best football is ahead of him as he possesses a great frame to develop at the position. Tall, long and lanky. Provides very good overall range. 25)-DT Jeremiah Taleni, Kailua (HI), 2star-Taleni is a compact, but thickly built kid who can help clog things up inside. He does need to watch how he adds weight and will likely even need to rework his body comp some if as big as listed 26)-TE Zach Poker, Oconomowoc (WIS), 2star-displays versatility as a two way player utilizing his strength and speed. Has a muscular build with good height. Will need to add size to his frame. Can line up at multiple alignments on offense as a TE/H-Back, Fullback, or flex out at WR. 27)-OT Carson Baker, Fairborn (OH), 2star- Baker is a developmental size prospect capable of dominating as a run blocker once he is able to clamp on defenders; flashes good upper body playing strength and strong hands. Has the size with enough athleticism for the offensive tackle position at the major level of competition Prospects CB-Brian Brown, Richmond (VA), 0star-High DT-James Ellison, Hamilton (GA), 3 star- Med S-Billy Aaron, Youngstown (OH), 2star-Med CB-Joseph Boaz, Weston (FL), 2star-Med CB-James Julius, Orlando (FL), 2star-Med
