Pitt will be graduating three wide receivers after the 2012 season. It will leave the Panthers with some inexperience and some question marks going into 2013. Zach Challingsworth is a local prospect and he is the only receiver currently committed to coach Paul Chryst.

Zach Challingsworth plays wide receiver for South Fayette High School. South Fayette competes in the class AA Century conference in the WPIAL. The Lions have been dominant early on in the season, and Challingsworth is a big reason why. He is the fifth in the WPIAL in catches(12), and second in receiving yards(304). He is also a threat out of the backfield in running the ball. He is part of a South Fayette offense that is out scoring teams 145-6 through three weeks.

Mike Shanahan, Cam Saddler, and Josh Brinson will be graduating after this season. That leaves Pitt with Devin Street and about five receivers under 6 feet tall. Challingsworth is 6-2 with 4.4 speed. His speed and athletiisicm is underrated and he could be the steal of the recruiting class. Challingsworth committed to Pitt back in June. He originally committed to Toledo, but after receiving an offer from Paul Chryst and Pitt he almost instantly changed his mind.

Pitt still needs at least one more receiver to the 2013 recruiting class. Challingsworth is a good start. Tyler Boyd and Robert Foster are still two elite WPIAL prospects that remain uncommitted.
