It’s June, so that means recruits. Pitt landed their third commitment of the weekend as John Morgan made the call today while visiting Pitt for a prospect camp. Morgan is a 6’3” 248 pound defensive end. He is graded as a three-star by all four of the major recruiting outlets.
John Morgan plays for national power, DeMatha Catholic in Hyattsville, Maryland. ESPN calls Morgan the 11th best player from the state of Maryland, while Rivals calls him the 29th ranked weak side defensive end nationally. He is the teammate of recent Pitt commitment, Judson Tallandier. Morgan held offers from Penn State, Virginia Tech, and Maryland among others.
Morgan is now the 7th member of Pitt’s 2018 recruiting class. He is the fourth defensive player for this recruiting cycle, and the first defensive end. It figures to be a small class for Pat Narduzzi and his staff, as the majority of Pitt’s roster are underclassmen and they will only graduate 10 seniors.
Pitt’s class is rapidly filling up, and there still could be more commitments happening this month. Pitt figures prominently into the recruitment of many of the local WPIAL prospects, and the staff can deliver on some of those.
