The Pitt football program is officially on a roll on the recruiting trail this weekend, as quarterback Davis Beville of Greenville, South Carolina, announced his commitment to the team on Sunday. Beville is the fourth 2019 recruit to commit to Pitt and the third since Travis Koontz on Friday.
“My entire circle of family, friends and coaches have been awesome, and I am forever grateful,” Beville said in a message posted on Twitter. “With that being said, I would love to announce that I am committed to the University of Pittsburgh.”
Rivals and 247Sports both consider Beville a three-star prospect as a pro-style quarterback, and the two recruiting sites both have him ranked among the top 30 at the position in the country. He drew offers from 13 programs, including Cincinnati, Northwestern, Rutgers and several Ivies.
Over the past two seasons at Greenville High School, the 6’6” recruit has put up impressive numbers, as he’s accounted for 4,724 yards and 64 touchdowns while limiting turnovers. In each of his two seasons, he’s exceeded 2,000 passing yards and thrown more than 25 touchdowns.
Beville is also known for his arm strength, and Greenville head coach David Crane discussed that attribute of his young standout’s game with Bob Castello of the Greenville News in October 2017.
The future is very, very bright for him. He’s capable of making throws to the wide side of the field that typically I’ve never asked high school quarterbacks to make. We’ll let him throw post-corners to the wide side of the field, outs to the wide side of the field, zips, quick-outs to the wide side of the field.
He threw a back-shoulder, hitch-and-go to Ty [Hellams] in the second game of the season from the right hash to the left sideline, and the ball was on a rope for about 40 yards. Those are the throws you don’t see most high school quarterbacks make.
As far as the Panthers’ broader recruiting efforts go, it seems as if the floodgates opened up on Sunday morning, as Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi started the day by tweeting a Pat signal just before 9 a.m. and has since signaled the commitments of six additional recruits.
