Sekai Lindsay commits to Pitt

Pitt gets a Florida running back

Sekai Lindsay, via his Twitter, committed to the University of Pittsburgh last night.  Lindsay is a 5'10" 205-pound back from Melbourne, Florida. He plays for Palm Bay High School, and helped guide them to a 9-4 record with a berth in the Florida state playoffs last year.  Lindsay checks in as a three star by both Rivals and 24/7, Scout rates him as a two star, while ESPN has a page but no info on him.  Rivals calls him the 50th best back in the nation, and the 75th best prospect in the talent rich state of Florida.

Sekai Lindsay had a solid offer sheet in which he chose Pitt over the likes of Georgia Tech, Cincinnati, NC State, Indiana, and South Florida. Lindsay appears to be a pretty good up and down runner, and would rather run over guys than run around them.  His highlight tape is called "bestmode" so definitely a touch of Marshawn Lynch in his running style. Between James Conner, and incoming recruits Chris James and Qadree Ollison and now Lindsay, you are starting to see the type of running backs the staff is trying to bring into the program. Big bruising type backs that are willing to run in a lot of power-I and single back sets.

Most people that follow the program had a belief that the recruiting would really skyrocket in the month of June, and it certainly has. Lindsay becomes the sixth recruit to join the class this month, and is the ninth overall. He also becomes Pitt's second recruit from the Sunshine State.

Right  now things look solid on the offensive side of the ball as Pitt now has a quarterback in Alex Hornibrook. Lindsay at running back, a pair of wideouts in Quadree Henderson and Tre Tipton along with Nick Bowers at tight end and Alex Paulina on the offensive line. Perhaps the rest of the class can be devoted towards bringing more talent on defense. Pitt's biggest target remaining happens to be four-star cornerback, Jordan Whitehead. Many feel Pitt is in the thick of that race with the Beaver County standout.
