Two more position groups to get to today before the faxes start rolling into the Pitt football offices tomorrow morning. First off, let's take a peak at the linebackers...
Jamal Davis (6-2, 215 lbs)
McKinley High School (Canton, Ohio)
Rivals: 3*, NR
Scout: 3*, No. 100 OLB
247: 3*, No. 78 OLB
James Folston, Jr. (6-3, 201 lbs)
Cocoa High School (Cocoa, Fla.)
Rivals: 3*, NR
Scout: 2*, NR
247: 2*, No. 176 S
Quintin Wirginis (6-2, 225 lbs)
Fox Chapel High School (Fox Chapel, Pa.)
Rivals: 2*, NR
Scout: 3*, No. 111 OLB
247: 2*, No. 117 OLB
Much like with the defensive linemen, I'd be surprised if any of these guys sees the field in 2014. Each could definitely have an impact long-term, but linebacker is just a position where Pitt is pretty set for next season. The only real loss from this year's team is Shane Gordon and he was on and off the field so much due to injuries, that Pitt has a couple guys who could step in and fill that role (though it will probably be Matt Galambos).
That said, each of these prospects is a bit interesting. Davis was a late addition to the class after Pitt offered him in mid-January, and didn't take long to make a decision after that. Folston, meanwhile, is a bit of a football legacy. His father spent nine years with the Oakland Raiders and his older brother, Tarean, just wrapped up his freshman year as a running back at Notre Dame (which should make Notre Dame's return to Heinz Field in 2015 a bit more interesting). I'm interested to see what Wirginis looks like when he gets on the field, too, as he missed his entire senior season at Fox Chapel after suffering a Lisfranc injury during 7-on-7 drills in the offseason. He's back playing basketball at Fox Chapel right now, so all indications are that he's good to go.
