Pitt’s June recruiting train kept on rolling this afternoon, as Blake Zubovic committed to the Panthers’ football program. Zubovic is listed as a 6’5” 310 pound offensive linemen. He is from nearby Belle Vernon High School in the Pittsburgh area.
The recruiting websites all consider Zubovic to be a three-star prospect. He is listed as the 14th best prospect in the state of Pennsylvania according to Rivals.com. He had additional offers from Penn State, Virginia Tech, and Michigan State, among 11 others.
Zubovic helped lead his Belle Vernon team to an 8-3 record in 2016. If the school sounds familiar, it also produced former Pitt Panther and current Arizona Cardinals’ lineman, Dorian Johnson. Here is a look at Zubovic’s junior season for the Leopards.
Zubovic becomes the ninth member of Pitt’s 2017 recruiting class, and now the third player from the WPIAL area. He is also Pitt’s sixth commitment in the past two weeks. There still appears to be some momentum on Pitt’s recruiting train, and a few more prospects are on commitment watch for the time being.
