Cardiac Hill Poll of the Day: Current Recruiting Vibe

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Pitt football's recruiting got off to an incredibly slow start this year. That always seems to be the case with Pat Narduzzi classes, but with only three recruits in late May, there was some very real concern among fans.

The Panthers have been on a roll in the past week, however. On May 30, they landed offensive lineman Jake Kradel, a three-star recruit with offers from Ohio State, Wisconsin, Virginia Tech, West Virginia, and others. On Friday, they picked up Wendell Davis and Judson Tallandier, two more guys with several P5 offers, albeit, not as impressive as Kradel's. Then on Sunday, they added John Morgan, a defensive end with several offers, including one from Penn State.

None of the guys Pitt landed were four-star or five-star guys according to Rivals, but they were solid gets and desired by some quality programs. Pitt nearly doubled its recruiting total in the past week and now has seven players committed. That still puts them behind the top programs in Rivals' team rankings in terms of volume, but they've now moved up into the Top 40. Work to do, but movement.

Based on the recent additions this week, how do you feel about Pitt's class as opposed to a week ago?
