2015 Pitt Football Recruiting: Panthers land four-star offensive lineman in Rob Dowdy

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

All's been fairly quiet on the recruiting front lately since Pitt's available scholarships from next year are dwindling. The Panthers landed a big-time player on Monday in Ohio offensive lineman, Rob Dowdy.

Dowdy is a four-star recruit per 247 and three-star recruit per Rivals and ESPN. According to Rivals, Dowdy checks in at an impressive 6'5" and 296 pounds and 247 lists him as the nation's No. 12 guard.

247 says he planned to make a decision on a school after his senior season, but in a bit of a surprise, he reportedly committed to Pitt early. Dowdy had an impressive offer list and chose the Panthers over Miami, Michigan State, Louisville, Arizona State, West Virginia, and many others.

This is yet another big get for Chryst and his strong offensive lines. The depth on the offensive line just keeps going and it's clear that commits are impressed with what he's putting together. The plan is simple - get as many linemen as he can, build quality depth, and run the ball down the throats of opposing teams.

In addition, Chryst is also landing some big time players near the end of their class. Pitt isn't expected to have many more spots left open, but their last two commits have been four-star players in Dowdy and running back Darrin Hall.

It's getting harder and harder to not like the direction of the program under Chryst. It still needs to translate to on-field wins, but Chryst appears headed in the right direction.
