Is Keller Chryst considering Pitt?

Is the nation's top quarterback looking at Pitt?

The news of Chandler Kincade deciding to decommit from Pitt is certainly a cause for concern for Paul Chryst's recruiting class. Kincade is a local prospect that was fairly well regarded by recruiting services. He was also the only recruit committed to Pitt for 2014 as of yesterday. With all that being said, could Pitt's recruiting efforts improve by this subtraction?

Pitt has offered and appears to be very much in the running for one, Keller Chryst. Chryst is rated as the top quarterback in the country by Rivals, and second by both ESPN and Scout. Chryst plays his high school ball at Palo Alto High in California. He also happens to be the nephew of Panther Head Coach, Paul Chryst. Keller's father is the quarterbacks coach for the San Francisco 49ers. In other words, he has some good bloodlines.

Chryst's recruitment is a strange one to say the least. He holds very few offers, because most believe it will be a tight race between USC, Stanford, and yes Pitt. Still, his rating and overall skills are completely there, and the lack of offers is meaningless. Chryst's family has kept the recruitment low key, and it is hard to say who is in the lead. As of now, Pitt is in play for the nation's top quarterback, and until we hear otherwise, that is a very exciting thought.
