Pitt pursuing Alabama transfer Trevor Lacey

USA TODAY Sports

The Panthers are still looking for ways to fill out the roster.

Pitt has had a whirlwind offseason to say the least. The surprising departure of Steven Adams set the Panthers back in the post. Now with Trey Zeigler and potentially even JJ Moore gone, they seem a bit thin on the wings as well. It is rumored that DeAndre Kane is leaning towards coming back home to play for Pitt, but that has not been solidified yet. Enter: Trevor Lacey.

Lacey is a former five star recruit out of high school and signed with Alabama . He was initially recruited by the likes of Kentucky, Kansas, and UConn before ultimately deciding with the in-state Crimson Tide.

Lacey has been a two year starter for the Tide, and he averaged 11 points per game in 2013. Jon Rothstein tweeted yesterday that Pitt is in play for the former Alabama guard. They will reportedly go up against conference mates North Carolina, NC State, and Miami in the recruiting battle:

Pitt had quite a roster turnover this offseason, but they are bringing in three very good freshmen in Mike Young, Josh Newkirk, and Jamel Artis, along with a talented JuCo transfer in Joe Uchebo. After that, there are still three scholarships available. Two locals in Sheldon Jeter and DeAndre Kane have been rumored, but are not definite. So the crazy offseason continues, but a guy like Trevor Lacey would be the biggest addition of them all.
