Pitt lands a local three-star offensive linemen.

Pitt picked up a three-star offensive linemen earlier this evening. Gabe Houy of Upper St. Clair High School committed to play for his hometown school. Houy is a 6’6″ 270 pound offensive linemen. He chose Pitt over other power five offers from Louisville, Maryland, Illinois and Wake Forest. He is graded as a three star by both Rivals and 24/7.

Gabe Houy is now the 11th commitment for the 2017 recruiting class. He is now the second offensive line recruit, joining Owen Drexel of New Jersey. Houy is just the second recruit from the WPIAL, and only the third recruit from the state of Pennsylvania overall.  Pitt has typically leaned heavy on their home state for talent in the past, but this staff has been able to find recruiting success out-of-state.

Gabe Houy will be reunited with his former high school teammate, Brandon Ford next season. Ford was also a three-star offensive linemen from Upper St. Clair. Houy will likely come into the program as a tackle given his 6’6″ 270 pound frame.  He displays pretty good athleticism in his hudl video.  He is only 270, but has the frame to add weight to play at this level.

I would expect recruiting to slow down a bit with the season rapidly approaching. Most kids will be focusing on their upcoming senior seasons, and will start using their official visits.  Pitt had 8 commitments at this point last season, so with 11 they are slightly ahead of the game.
