With the news last week that Rushel Shell committed to Pitt, where does the Panthers' 2012 recruiting class stand? Well, it's safe to say things are looking up in the rankings.
It's way too early to say where things will end up. There are still several big recruits out there that could sway things and force Pitt farther down. But the good news is that Pitt still has its eye on some that could bump the school up even higher.
All of Pitt's commitments at this point are obviously only verbals, but if things hold together, then Todd Graham could be looking at a top 25 class in his first season ... and that would be a major accomplishment.
