Pitt's 2013 football recruiting class among largest in nation

With 25 recruits, Pitt is building some kind of recruiting class. You can take notice of the stars such as Dorian Johnson, Tyler Boyd, and Tra'Von Chapman, but the Panthers are also adding a good bit of quantity. Not only a good bit, but the Panthers have one of the largest 2013 classes in the country thus far.

As of Friday, the team's 25 verbal commitments ranked for seventh most in the nation. It's also by far and away the most in the ACC (Virginia Tech at No. 43 is next with 19). The only programs with more are Texas A&M, Georgia, Utah, Florida, Michigan, and BYU. Pitt also has the opportunity to stockpile a bit more depth in certain areas since four of their recruits counted towards the 2012 class.

Recruiting isn't an exact science. But with so much depth, the chances that Pitt finds several gems should be pretty high. Players like Chapman, Johnson, and Boyd will end up contributing, but what the Panthers really need is for those two- and three-star kids to make an impact.
