Pitt makes top 12 of four-star receiver Antonio Gates Jr.

Pat Narduzzi and the Pitt coaching staff continued to make headway on the recruiting trail this week, and their work landed the program in the top 12 of Antonio Gates Jr., a promising wide receiver out of Fordson High School in Dearborn, Michigan.

In addition to Pitt, Gates included Boston College, Iowa State, Kentucky, Louisville, Maryland, Michigan State, Nebraska, Ole Miss, Penn State, Washington State and West Virginia as finalists in his top 12.

Gates’ list was created by trimming down an offer sheet with more than 20 programs represented, and the cuts included Arkansas, Buffalo, Central Michigan, Cincinnati, Coastal Carolina, Eastern Michigan, Florida Atlantic, Memphis, Southern Mississippi and Toledo.
