Pat Narduzzi had Pitt Twitter buzzing today. He let out his second “Pat Signal” of the day. We soon found out that linebacker, Wendell Davis Jr. was Pitt’s newest commitment. He announced it via Twitter himself.

Wendell Davis Jr. is a 6’2” 215 pound outside linebacker from Richmond, Virginia. He is graded as three-star prospect by Rivals, 24/7, and Scout. He chose Pitt over offers from Michigan State, West Virginia, and Duke among others. 247 Sports credits him with being the 7th best prospect in the state of Virginia.

Davis plays his high school football for Benedictine High School. He helped guide his team to a 7-3 record in 2016. Here is a better look at his play.

Wendell Davis is Pitt’s sixth recruit for the class of 2018. He is also the second commitment of the day, and the third of the week. The 2018 recruiting class is not expected to be a big one, but spots have been filling up quickly.

Pitt’s recruiting efforts usually explode in June, and it sure looks to be happening again this year. Could more be coming? Pat Narduzzi certainly teased it earlier with another tweet. Pitt’s prospect camps start tomorrow, and more commitments could be in line.
