Pat Narduzzi and the Pitt coaching staff added a 14th recruit to their 2021 class on Thursday night, as Noah Biglow, a cornerback out of Armwood High School in Seffner, Florida, announced his commitment to the program. Biglow had previously committed to Iowa State but ultimately made the decision to flip.
Committed. You don’t have to respect my decision! pic.twitter.com/c61uioCZqk— Randy Biglow ❕ (@noahbiglow28) May 28, 2020
“I am decommitting from Iowa State,” Biglow said in a message posted on Twitter. “With that being said, I will be continuing academic and athletic career at the University of Pittsburgh.”
The 6’0”, 170-pound cornerback holds three-star ratings from 247Sports and Rivals and previously pledged to Iowa State on April 16 after drawing a dozen scholarship offers over the course of his recruitment. However, Biglow received four offers after his announcement, including one from Pitt on May 10, and that one proved too tempting to pass up.
In addition to Iowa State, Biglow chose Pitt over offers from Army, Duke, Kansas, North Dakota State, Virginia, Washington State and a handful of lower-tier schools.
During his time at Armwood, Biglow has earned a reputation as a ball hawk, as he came up with six interceptions and eight pass breakups in 2019 alone. The year before that, in his first varsity season, Biglow had three additional picks and 11 pass breakups. Biglow has also tallied a total of 43 tackles over the last two years, including four for losses.
If Biglow takes well to football at the college level, he could make a major impact as a member of a defensive backfield that has recently become one of Pitt's most notable strengths. Biglow will also arrive at Pitt at an opportune time, as current Panthers cornerbacks Damarri Mathis and Jason Pinnock are set to graduate in 2021.
