Sitting here with coach Dixon of Pittsburgh for my first in home visit— BeeJay Anya (@BAnya_Allday) September 9, 2012
Per Anya's Twitter. The Maryland center continues to be Pitt's top target and would be fantastic insurance in the event Steven Adams is a one-and-done type player. Even if Adams comes back, Anya will replace Dante Taylor and likely become the first big man off the bench. Anya will be taking an official visit to Pitt next weekend. h/t Ray Fittipaldo
The 2012 Pitt Football entrance video. New stuff starts after 1:00. That's not me talking in the background.
In light of recent events, Paul Alexander will not be serving as sideline reporter for #Pitt this season.— Chris Peak (@PantherLair) August 29, 2012
1. Pitt plans on making a statement in its final season in the Big East by resuming its traditional role under Jamie Dixon as a title contender after last season’s NCAA miss. To tipoff the campaign, the Panthers are doing something out of the box for the more maligned Panthers by hosting a Midnight Madness event --- outside. The unique event will be a part of the school’s 225-year anniversary celebration. The men’s and women’s teams will play on a wooden outdoor floor, near the Pitt Union. Lights, bleachers and a video board will be brought in for the free event that should begin after a fireworks display at 9:15 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 12. If the weather doesn’t cooperate then the teams will go inside at the Petersen Events Center. The Panthers return guard Tray Woodall and add two big-time newcomers in James Robinson and Central Michigan transfer Trey Zeigler.
Pretty surprising tweet from ESPN.com recruiting analyst Jared Shanker that Pitt RB Corey Clement will likely decommit from Pitt. That would surprise me, as Clement was a fairly early commitment from the Panthers and already had a very solid offer sheet at the time. On the plus side, Shanker is optimistic about Pitt's chances to land two out of three of Dorian Johnson, Robert Foster and Tyler Boyd. Not too shabby.
