Pitt on cusp of Top 15 recruiting class on National Signing Day

Coming off of two consecutive down seasons, you might not expect that Pitt would have a successful recruiting class. But Paul Chryst has beaten the odds and is not only on the cusp of a respectable class, but one of the best in the nation.

Recruiting rankings vary, but count Scout among those that are believers in the group of players expected to sign with Pitt. As of now, they have the Panthers rated with the No. 16 class in the nation and best in the ACC just ahead of Florida State.

Now, that's quite a bit higher than Rivals, who ranks Pitt at No. 31. But even that's higher than you might expect from a team that won a total of 12 games over the past two years. Chryst's class isn't full of stars, but when you compare the rankings from Rivals and Scout with the low amount of on-field success the team has had, it's hard to not recognize that he's done about as well as could be expected.

Chryst has proven his staff can recruit and if the program starts winning more, just imagine what he could do.
