Worried About Pitt's Football Recruiting? This.

Yesterday, I wrote about Paul Chryst and while it was far too early to judge the job he's done with recruiting. That's even more evident when you take a look at what the rest of the Big East is doing.

Pitt has four recruits thus far and while that might not seem like a lot, it's tied for the second most in the Big East as of this past week (Louisville's out in front with eight). And had it not been for the loss of Dan Samuelson, Pitt would be sitting in second place with five commits.

Then there's the quality of Pitt's class. Chryst hasn't landed a big-time recruit yet, but nearly everyone else in the conference is having trouble, too. No Big East team has an ESPN top 150 player and only Louisville has picked up a four-star recruit. Granted, there isn't anyone in the Big East that could be considered a powerhouse, but the point is that Pitt actually stacks up pretty favorably against teams in their own conference.

I've said it before, but it bears repeating - Pitt has so much time left to put together a recruiting class that it's not even funny. Even remotely panicking about Pitt's 2013 class at this point, which is still about nine months away is extremely foolish.
