Pitt Football Recruiting: Panthers Land Tra'Von Chapman And Carson Baker

Pitt head coach Paul Chryst was busy on Thursday, picking up a pair of recruits for 2013.


First up was quarterback, Tra'Von Chapman. Chapman is widely regarded as the best player in Pitt's class thus far and is a four-star recruit. With him now in the fold, Pitt now has two four-star quarterbacks with he and 2012 recruit, Chad Voytik. Chapman can add a different dimension as he's a bit of a dual-threat and had 800 yards rushing to go along with nearly 3,000 passing yards. It will be interesting to see how Pitt utilizes him when he comes to the program in 2013.


The Panthers also picked up offensive lineman, Carson Baker. Baker isn't highly regarded by most sites, but he is playing a position of need for the Panthers as Chryst hopes to stockpile some depth on the line.
