Pitt wrapped up a successful week of recruiting during training camp by adding a verbal commitment from DE Desimon Green.â†µ
Green also doubled as a quarterback last season and led his team, Clairton High School, to the PIAA Class A title. Last season, he totaled 1,600 yards passing, 900 yards rushing, and a total of 23 touchdowns. However, his defense is probably what the Panthers are most interested in. As as a DE, he recorded 87 tackles including a team-record 26 sacks.
That outstanding season led to more than a dozen offers from schools including West Virginia, Cincinnati, Michigan, Michigan State, Texas Tech, Purdue, and others.â†µ
