Malik Henderson commits to Pitt

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Pitt landed their fourth commitment for the 2015 recruiting class today with Malik Henderson.

Pitt received some much needed good news today with Malik Henderson pledging to the University of Pittsburgh via his Twitter account.

Malik Henderson is a 6"1 175 pound cornerback that will be playing his senior season for Hallandale High School. He transferred after previously playing for South Plantation High School, and had a pretty successful junior campaign. Henderson is listed as a two-star by Rivals and a three-star by 24/7, while he is not given a star by either ESPN or Scout. He chose the Panthers over offers from Arkansas, Indiana, UMass, and Florida Atlantic.

Henderson becomes the fourth commitment of the 2015 recruiting class, and the first one since Kevin Givens committed back in February. Henderson is the first out-of-state commitment for Paul Chryst this year, and comes from the talent rich state of Florida. Pitt has been put an added emphasis on recruiting down South, and perhaps Henderson can be the start of a pipeline to the Sunshine state.

There has been much talk of the lack of commitments for this recruiting class thus far, but history shows us June is typically when recruiting picks up for most schools. With Pitt's new found interest in Southern states, plus with a few big prospects hanging in their typical recruiting footprint, the coaching staff can still put a solid class together, especially with a successful season.
