**New recruit has entered the picture for Pitt and he’s a good one. Adam Freidman from Rivals says that Pitt coaches will visit 4-star DE Karamo Dioubate from Philadelphia. Last week Dioubate de-committed from Penn State. Freidman also says that both Penn State and Michigan St will visit Dioubate too.

UPDATE 10:01 PM
**Just confirmed that Chicago DT Amir Watts has received an offer from Penn State. That’s a pretty big development. When I asked Watts his reaction to the offer and if it would impact his scheduled official visits, Watts said, “No other comment at this time.” In the last week, Watts has received offers from Penn State, Maryland and Iowa State. The 3-star DT is scheduled to make his official visit to Pitt next weekend. It’ll be interesting to see how this offer from Penn State changes things (if at all).
UPDATE (10:21 PM)
**One other update regarding Watts, I was just told that Pitt defensive line coach Thomas Simms visited with him tonight. That’s a good things for Pitt.
UPDATE (11:15 PM)
