Pitt's 2013 recruiting class took a hit on Tuesday when offensive guard prospect Dan Samuelson switched his commitment from the Panthers to Nebraska, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review's Jerry DiPaola. The Plymouth, Ind. native committed to Pitt on April 25, but apparently had a fairly quick change of heart.â†µ
Samuelson is rated a three-star prospect by Scout, Rivals and 247 Sports and is ranked the No. 40 offensive guard nationally by 247. In addition to Pitt and Nebraska, he holds scholarship offers from Illinois, Minnesota, Bowling Green, Miami (Ohio), Wake Forest, Western Michigan and Wyoming, according to his Rivals profile.
With Samuelson gone, Pitt's 2013 recruiting class has been reduced to four members: tight end Scott Orndoff, tight end Jaymar Parrish, offensive lineman Aaron Reese and defensive end Shakir Soto.â†µ
