STATE CHAMPS! SCOUT TEAM: Pitt grabs pair of PSL giants in King’s Honorable, Cass Tech’s Enos
Pitt got a whole lot bigger on the line on Sunday.
Cass Tech’s Terrence Enos and Detroit King’s Brandon Honorable both chose the Panthers on Sunday, giving Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi a huge influx of muscle on the offensive line.
Both players made the announcement on Twitter Sunday afternoon.
A 6-foot-7, 280-pound offensive tackle, Honorable is also a three-star prospect, ranked as the No. 32 prospect in the state by 247Sports, and the No. 95 prospect at his position in the country. Honorable chose Pitt over 17 other offers, including Cincinnati, Indiana, Iowa State, Maryland, Minnesota and Tennessee.
A 6-foot-5, 317-pound offensive tackle, Enos is a three-star prospect, and the No. 15 prospect in Michigan, according to 247Sports, as well as the No. 49 offensive tackle in the country. He chose Pitt over 21 over offers, including Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa State, Kentucky, LSU, Missouri and West Virginia.
“First, I would like to thank God for all the blessings he has provided me with this far. Next, I would like to thank my mom, dad and family for raising me into the young man I am today,” Enos tweeted out. “I would also like to thank coach Wilcher and Cass Tech for giving me great opportunities for my future. This decision I’m making is not just a three- to five-year decision, but a lifetime one.”
Both players were recruited by defensive backs coach Archie Collins, a Michigan State alumnus who coached for seven seasons in the PSL, including at his high school alma mater, Cass Tech (2003-04), and was a defensive grad assistant with Narduzzi at Michigan State (2010-12). He was named the MAC Recruiter of the Year during this time at Central Michigan.
