Pitt Football Recruiting: 2016 QB Thomas MacVittie commits to Panthers

New, 19 comments

Head coach Pat Narduzzi received his 3rd recruit for the 2016 class this morning.

Pat Narduzzi picked up his third commitment since Saturday when 6'5", 210 lb Cincinnati QB Thomas MacVittie committed to the Panthers on a visit this morning.

Thomas, a 247 three star recruit, chose Pitt over offers from Cincinnati and Miami (OH). His offer list is not very impressive, but he has not had much in playing time as he sat behind an entrenched starter. Pitt Offensive Coordinator Jim Chaney found him through a recommendation from MacVattie's throwing coach. MacVattie's team coach is very high on him:

Many felt MacVittie's recruitment would grow as he went through development camps for different teams when they'd be able to see him through. Obviously Pat Narduzzi made Thomas feel comfortable enough to end it early anyway. That of course doesn't mean MacVittie won't be pursued by others after committing. One of the committee members of the Army All American game also had positive things to say:

Welcome to Pitt, Thomas.
