Pitt Football Recruiting: Adonis Jennings picks Panthers

New, 18 comments

Over the weekend, Pitt missed out on four-star wide receiver Jamil Kamara. The loss was a big one, but not entirely unexpected as Kamara chose to stay close to home in Virginia. The Panthers, though, bounced back tonight when another four-star receiver, Adonis Jennings, announced he was Pitt bound.

Jennings, as we wrote about recently, is a highly touted kid in his own right. While many believe that Kamara is a better receiver, it's notable that ESPN actually ranks Jennings above Kamara. Simply put, just a big, big get here for the Panthers and Paul Chryst.

Jennings' commitment is a tremendous boost for the offense, which has the look of a potentially explosive unit. With an improving line buoyed by some standout recruits, a young, talented quarterback in Chad Voytik, a superstar in receiver Tyler Boyd, and a deep running back corps, Pitt's outlook is bright here. In particular, Jennings coming to Pitt gives the team the weapon they needed opposite Boyd. Pitt has several lower-ranked guys there and one or two should work out, but in Jennings, Pitt has the chance to have two superstars out of that group.

When you throw in the tight ends, including a guy like J.P. Holtz, Voytik should really have more options at receiver than he knows what to do with.
