After a trying month in which the Panthers saw four transfers (Cameron Johnson, Corey Manigault, Damon Wilson Jr. and Crisshawn Clark) and a dismissal (Justice Kithcart), Kevin Stallings and Pitt are in the process now of possibly adding a player to the roster.
According to Jon Rothstein, Longwood transfer Khris Lane will be visiting Pitt this coming weekend.
Longwood transfer Khris Lane tells me he will visit Pitt this weekend and Rhode Island next weekend. Immediately eligible for next season.

Lane will be a graduate transfer and will have one year remaining and will be eligible immediately.
The 6-6 forward averaged 17.1 PPG and 7.3 rebounds last season for Longwood. Lane was a 34% 3-point shooter and shot 54% from the floor.
After visiting Pitt, Lane will reportedly visit Rhode Island next weekend.
Lane would be a welcome addition to Pitt’s front court bringing them experience and the ability to score.
