Four-Star Bill Belton Commits to Pitt

Consensus four-star athlete as rated by Rivals and Scout, Bill Belton has been seen as a prized recruit.  Offered by some heavy hitters including Florida, Penn State, Oregon, West Virginia, Nebraska and about 15 other schools, today Belton chose Pitt.  They once again raided New Jersey to do so and you start to wonder, at what point does Rutgers start losing it.

As a quarterback last season, he passed for 2,200 yards and rushed for 700 more.  Belton is rated as the 13th best wide receiver by Rivals and the 28th best athlete by Scout and whenever you start beating out schools such as Florida for recruits, you're doing something right.  Assuming he holds to his commitment throughout the year, with plenty of quality offers, I'm sure Pitt will be sweating it out on signing day.

Pitt also secured a verbal commitment from wide receiver Justin Olack out of Massillon, Ohio.  Last season, he had 49 catches for 765 yards.  Olack is a two-star recruit according to Scout and a three-star recruit as rated by Rivals.  His other offers were from Miami (OH), Toledo, Ball State, and Indiana.
