After already securing the commitment of a punter in June, Pitt got a verbal commitment from Alexandria (VA) kicker Chris Blewitt. Cue the "blew it" jokes in 3...2...1...
Despite the pun, Blewitt is a solid Division 1 prospect with one other BCS offer in Temple. I'm not always a fan of giving a punter/kicker a scholarship when it could instead be used on another area of need. But with Pitt having both it's kicker and punter in their junior year, this will allow Chryst to redshirt both prospects so he will be able to get a full 4 years out of both of them at the very least. And if Blewitt turns out to be better than current kicker Kevin Harper, then Pitt will be better off in 2012 anyways. Either way, it can't hurt Pitt.
Here are some highlights of Pitt's latest commitment courtesy of Kohl's Kicking. Welcome it Pitt, Chris Blewitt!
