Narduzzi adds even more defensive talent with his second commitment of the weekend.

New Jersey linebacker Saleem Brightwell of Paramus Catholic has committed to Pitt. This was first reported by Chris Peak of Pantherlair, and later confirmed by Brightwell himself on twitter.

Brightwell had offers from Michigan St, Miami, Boston College, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, UNC, Wiscosin, Rutgers, and more. Oregon also showed late interest but didn't offer. He's considered a three star recruit, and is the fifteenth commit in the 2015 class.

This is a really great pickup for Pitt, and Narduzzi continues to show how aggressive his recruiting can be. I'll be curious to see how he does with a whole year to recruit and not just a month.

Welcome to Pitt, Saleem. Hail to Pitt!
