Pitt received a verbal commitment from Steve Adams, a 6’11" center from New Zealand. Adams will be a part of the Panthers’ 2012 recruiting class.â†µ
Little is known about him at this point and he isn’t ranked by either of the two major recruiting services, Scout or Rivals. Pitt fans, however, may be interested to find out that he was the MVP of the New Zealand Under-17 National Championships in 2009 and MVP of the 2010 New Zealand Under-19 National Championships, which just ended last month.â†µ
2012 is a ways off, so his coming to Pitt is hardly set in stone. If Pitt is unable to land a center in 2011’s class, Adams would be the school’s first true center recruit since 2007.
