Pitt Football Recruiting: Panthers Get Two More Verbals

Pitt's big final recruiting weekend saw two more verbal commitments on Saturday for head coach Todd Graham.

First, there was Jason Frimpong whose name had been out there for some time as a possible Pitt commit. Frimpong is out of Texas and was previously a Tulsa commit while Todd Graham was there, so after Graham came to Pitt, he became interested in the Panthers.

He was a quarterback in high school (although more of a dual-threat QB who ran a lot) but will apparently be headed to corner at Pitt. Scout has him as a two-star while Rivals lists him as only a two-star.

Then, Pitt saw wide receiver (currently a QB) Ronald Jones commit. Jones is known for his speed, but only rated as a two-star by Scout and is unranked by Rivals.

I said all along that I won't complain about the level of Pitt recruits in 2011. To put together any kind of a class under the circumstances was a pretty tough gig. But the Jones move especially sounds like a reach. His only offers were reportedly from Georgia Southern, Marshall, and the Citadel. I mean, really?

Oh well, plenty of four-stars remain on Pitt's radar and the class is now up to 11. While this might not be the 'best ever' class that Graham essentially said Pitt would have during his introductory press conference, he's done a pretty good job of working round the clock to get a ton of visits in.

Well played.
