UPDATE (12:24 PM)-
**PSN’s Alan Saunders reports that quarterback Bo Schneider is transferring from Pitt to Texas A&M. At this point, we believe Schneider is joining Texas A&M as a walk-on. Following last season, it was obvious that he didn’t have a future at quarterback with Pitt and in all likelihood would be moving on.
The current Pitt quarterback depth chart is Max Browne, Thomas MacVittie, Kenny Pickett and Ben DiNucci. Next year, Pitt will add current 2018 commit Nick Patti to that depth chart.
UPDATE (11:48 AM)-
**The Pitt basketball program announced today that they’ll be hosting Montana and UC-Santa Barbara in the opening round games of the 11th annual Legends Classic. The game with Montana will take place on November 13 with the UC-Santa Barbara game being played on November 15.
Those opening round games will lead up to games at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn (Nov 20-21) against Penn State, Texas A&M and Oklahoma State.
UPDATE (11:34 AM)-
**The Pitt basketball program has extended an offer to one of the top juniors in the country. This morning, Kevin Stallings and his staff offered 2019 small forward Precious Achiuwa. The 6-foot-7 forward is from St. Benedict’s High School (Bronx, New York) and is rated by 247 Sports as the 26th best prospect in the Class of 2019. Achiuwa holds early offers from Kansas, Ohio State, Seton Hall and St. John’s.
