On June 2nd, Pat Narduzzi and the Pitt football program got a pair of commitments from Virginia linebacker Wendell Davis and Maryland cornerback Judson Tallandier. Those two kicked off a whirlwind month that has seen the Panthers land 5 commits thus far, increasing their 2018 recruiting class to 9 commits in total.

EJ: What was the recruiting process like for you?

WD: At first it was kind of slow, you know. Charlotte was my first offer a while back and then I had Old Dominion. After I got Duke then it started picking up. It was pretty fun. I visited around a lot of schools to weigh my options.

EJ: Do you have any plans to take any more visits?

WD: No.

EJ: So it’s Pitt all the way?

WD: Yes, sir.

EJ: Do you play a role in trying to recruit other guys to join you at Pitt?

WD: If I see a guy who is really interested in Pitt I try to tell him why I went there, but I’m not going to try to force it on him or anything.

WD: Yeah we are all in a little group chat so we are all talking and building a relationship together so that when we go to college we already have something established. Pitt is doing great things and other guys started seeing that and wanted to be a part
