Marcus Carr Commits To Pitt

Pitt head coach Kevin Stallings has a third player for 2017, as he secured a verbal commitment from guard Marcus Carr Wednesday morning.

Carr is a 6-foot-2 point guard out of Monteverde Academy in Monteverde, Florida. He’s rated as a three-star prospect by 247 Sports. Carr is originally from Toronto, Ontario, and has been on Pitt’s radar for quite some time. He took his official visit to campus earlier this month.

It’s an interesting choice for Pitt, as the Panthers seemingly are set at point guard with four-star commit Aaron Thompson already in the fold and freshman Justice Kithcart just getting settled into the roster. It’s possible the Panthers see Carr as more of a combo guard, which he has done at the AAU level.

Carr also held offers from Cincinnati, Houston and Virginia Tech.

In addition to Carr and Thompson, Pitt’s 2017 class includes power forward Terrell Brown. Pitt has four seniors on the roster and is carrying an extra scholarship into the season, so Stallings can have a six-player recruiting class for 2017.
