Pitt picked up its fifth commitment for the 2013 class Monday in Gateway fullback Jaymar Parrish. He played tight end in high school, but there's no question where Chryst and Rudolph are going to line him up (via the PG):
"They're going to line him up as a traditional fullback because they're a pro-style offense team," said Gateway coach Terry Smith. "He's an extremely physical blocker and just a tough, hard-nosed kid who is really athletic."
At only six feet, there was no chance of him playing tight end in Chryst's scheme. And like most fullbacks, his offer list isn't particularly large - just one from Akron - but neither was Pitt's last fullback's and things worked out just fine.
Like offensive line and tight end, Pitt is in need of quality fullbacks. Chryst added Ohio State transfer David Durham in February, which hopefully allows Parrish to redshirt.
Welcome aboard, Jaymar.
