Former Pitt verbal commitments Kyshoen Jarrett and Jameel Poteat have verbally committed to new schools this week, after de-committing from the Panthers following Dave Wannstedt's resignation.â†µ
Jarrett, a four-star cornerback from East Stroudsburg, Pa., gave his new commitment to Virginia Tech on Dec. 21. He had interest from other major FBS schools, including Michigan, Michigan State and Penn State. The Nittany Lions attempted to contact Jarrett's coach after the shakeup in the Pitt coaching staff, but Jarrett committed to the Hokies instead.â†µ
Poteat, a four-star running back from Bishop McDevitt (Harrisburg, Pa.), announced today that he would be playing college football for the Cincinnati Bearcats. Bishop McDevitt is normally a fertile recruiting pipeline for Pitt, but even that could not keep the coveted Poteat with the Panthers. Poteat also had interest from Florida, USC, and Notre Dame. For whatever reason, there was mutual disinterest between Poteat and Penn State.
