Duhart had an outstanding season for the Ravens. He registered 16 solo tackles, 37 assisted tackles, 10 tackles for a loss (46 total lost yards), 6 ½ sacks (33 total lost yards), 12 quarterback hurries, 4 batted balls, 2 forced fumbles, 4 fumble recoveries and 2 blocked field goals. Tommie will have three years of eligibility.
"I consider myself a Pitt commitment taking a closer look at another football program. Florida has expressed a lot of interest in me and I think it at least deserves a look. It's close to home and clearly they have done well on the field," Duhart said. "That being said, I still consider myself strongly committed to the Panthers."
Duhart has the opportunity to step in and solidify a starting position next season with the Panthers. When asked if playing time factored into his decision, he stated, "I guess I would play sooner at Pitt but I believe in my abilities and I believe I could start anywhere."
Scout.com ranks Duhart a "four-star" prospect. He's capable of bench pressing nearly 400 pounds and running a 4.9 forty-yard dash.
"I really liked it at Pitt and I think highly of Coach (Paul) Rhodes. I simply want to take a look at another program so I feel complete about decision. I really don't expect anything to chance in terms of where I'm playing football. I committed to Pitt and I still see myself playing there."
