Pitt continued its quest to build a massive offensive line when Dan Samuelson, a 6-foot-5, 290-pound guard from Plymouth (Ind.) High School, said he will enroll next year.

Samuelson, rated a three-star recruit by, is the second rising senior at that height and weight to commit to Pitt this year. The other is Chambersburg offensive lineman Aaron Reese.

Samuelson had offers from Wake Forest, Illinois, Wyoming and several Mid American Conference schools.

Plymouth coach John Baron described Samuelson as “a very physical run blocker.”

Samuelson also enjoyed his meetings with coach Paul Chryst and line coach Jim Hueber, Baron said.

“It didn't seem like Pitt (coaches) were a bunch of car salesmen,” said Baron, who had a hour-long telephone conversation with Chryst. “The other schools seemed like car salesmen, wheelers and dealers.”
