Corona, CA: Pitt looking to secure a dual-threat quarterback on signing day

Entering signing day, the Panthers are still trying to secure a top recruit that has narrowed down his final choices to include the Panthers. The surprise recruit is 6-5, 232 dual-threat quarterback Michael Eubank from Corona, Ca. who just started considering Pitt about two weeks ago.

Eubank has the potential to be the no-huddle, dual-threat quarterback Pitt would need to run the new offense being installed this offseason. He originally committed to Arizona State but is still showing interest at the last minute in Utah and also Pitt, where he officially visited this past weekend.

Pitt also showed interest in 6-3, 200-pound Cormac Craigie from Pawling, New York, a dual-threat quarterback who committed to Richmond in December. Craigie visited Pitt as well and liked what he saw but did not receive an offer. It is thought that Pitt would offer if Eubank declined.

Eubank placed Pitt in the mix after Pitt's quarterback coach Todd Dodge explained to him that the Panthers will be installing an offensive system similar to what he ran in high school. It looks like this situation will go down to the wire which could get dicey if Eubank commits elsewhere and Craigie already signs with the Spiders, but this is par for the course on signing day.

The Panthers will announce their official class on Wednesday, Feb. 2 (signing day) at 3:30 p.m. when new head coach Todd Graham holds a signing day press conference from the Pitt locker room at Heinz Field.
