Wide receiver/defensive back Zach Challingsworth committed to Paul Chryst and Pitt this week. After committing earlier to Toledo, he remained interested in the Panthers. Pitt offered him a scholarship and he accepted.â†µ
Challingsworth hasn't been highly recruited by bigger schools and, like many of Chryst's recruits to this point, isn't all that highly rated. Both Rivals and Scout list him as only a two-star player. Scout also says he's the 150th best wide receiver in the nation.
"I wasn't the first to de-commit, and I won't be the last," he said. "De-committing was my decision because my heart belonged to Pitt. I was scared to call Toledo and tell them, because I'm a person of my word and I hated to do that, but that's something you have to do in becoming a young man."â†µ
Pitt was recently on the other side of this recently when they lost lineman commit Dan Samuelson to Nebraska.â†µ
