Belle Glade (Fla.) Glades Central tight end Tommy Duhart (6-3, 251, 5.1) took an official visit to Pittsburgh over the weekend (12/17).
"I had a great visit to Pittsburgh," Duhart said. "We went to Dave and
Buster's and played all kinds of games."
As is the case with most Florida prospects that journey north during the
winter, Duhart got his first glimpse of snow.
"That was wild, it was my first time seeing snow," Duhart said. "Before

"I did, and they were all straight with me," Duhart said. "They put my

Did the visit to Pittsburgh increase the Panthers chances of landing the
jumbo Florida athlete?
"My interest in them definitely went up after the visit," Duhart said.
"It went better than I thought it would."
January will be a busy month for Duhart as he has three visits
scheduled. Duhart will visit South Florida (1/7), Florida (1/21), and
"I plan on taking all of my visits, and announcing closer to signing
day," Duhart said.
Glades Central finished the season with a (12-1) record. Duhart caught 5
passes for 124 yards.
"We play a lot of four-five wide receiver formations, I don't get a lot
of passes thrown to me," Duhart said. "I play a lot of defense, I punt,
and I kickoff."
Duhart registered 58 tackles, 11 for a loss, four sacks, two forced
fumbles, and one blocked punt, from his defensive end position.
Duhart was recently named first-team All-County (Palm Beach) by the
Palm Beach post, he was also chosen to play in the Outback
