Pitt Football Recruiting Heating Up With Big Weekend

When Todd Graham came to Pitt, its once highly-touted recruiting class had dwindled down to a mere six recruits. But with a few weeks of hard work, Graham has the class up to 17 commits and counting.

Several additional commits came out of this weekend's many visits. Here's a brief rundown of the latest recruits:

  • Devin Cook, Graham's first WPIAL commit, is a three-star tight end who is projected to play at defensive end for Pitt.

  • Lloyd Carrington is a cornerback out of Texas. He is also a three-star recruit and reportedly had more than a dozen other offers from schools such as Oklahoma State, Utah, and Minnesota.
