Charlotte has stroke again on the recruiting trail for 2018, this time in the state of Maryland as 2018 cornerback Jonnie Pittman has committed to the 49ers.
Pitman is a 6-foot-0, 175 pound prospect from Potomac high school in Maryland and held several offers from Air Force, Albany, Army, Charlotte, Fordham, Georgetown, Holy Cross, Monmouth, Morgan State, Navy, New Hampshire, Ohio, and Youngstown state.
Coach Edmonds has been his main recruiter throughout the process and when we spoke with Pitman back in May, when he received his offer, he was impressed with what Charlotte had to offer, as well as having a family tie.
“I know that it has a wide variety of academic offerings at Charlotte. I know that it is located in North Carolina, where my mother is from.”
So what will Charlotte be getting in Pittman?
“Press coverage corner,” he said back in May. “I am able to play the safety position. My speed helps me recover from any situation on the field. I am able to step in and help in any situation on both sides. I am also able to tackle.”
