Recruiting is well underway for the class of 2019. Many top prospects have already offered up verbal commitments.
Arizona State landed its first commitment of the Herm Edwards Era this week. It was Arizona State's first 2019 commit.
Incredibly, there are two Power 5 programs that have been shut out so far. They are still looking for their first commit in this cycle.
The two programs are UCLA and Pitt.
UCLA makes some sense because Chip Kelly is entering his first season as head coach of the Bruins. Even with Kelly's reputation, it can take a new coach some time to get going on the recruiting trail.
Pat Narduzzi is established at Pitt, however, so its more surprising he doesn't have a commit. It seems linebacker Joe Smith is a candidate to become the first to pull the trigger.
Just a hunch here: with the commitment flurry that occurs every June, expect Pitt and UCLA to land one sooner rather than later.
In the meantime, fans of both programs will likely remain anxious.
