Pitt Offers Shamiel Stevenson

Kevin Stallings and his staff are looking to round out their first recruiting class at Pitt and last night they offered a potential member.

Shamiel Stevenson, a 6-6, 230 lb. small forward from Hillcrest Prep Academy (Utah) picked up an offer from the Panthers. 247 Sports rates Stevenson as a 3-star recruit and he holds offers from USC, Georgia Tech and Arizona State.

“I was surprised because they haven’t seen me that long but at the same time, I wasn’t that surprised because I have been playing very well and they said they need a player like me. I was thinking to myself that the offer could come,” said Stevenson.

Stevenson, who’s a native of Oakville, Canada, is someone that seems like a Stallings type player, in other words, someone that can do a lot of things. I asked him about the strengths of his game.

“I’m an all-around player. I can do almost anything well on the court. I can play defense, can guard multiple positions, can hit the outside shot, can pass and find people and I can play 1 thru 4 on the court,” said Stevenson.

Right now, Stallings has commitments from 4 players (Jared Wilson-Frame, Marcus Carr, Terrell Brown and Aaron Thompson) and Stevenson seems like a player that Pitt has a lot of interest in.

“We’ve talked yesterday about me scheduling a visit so I’m going to look at my schedule. Pitt is definitely a place I’m interested in. The situation is really good. They need a couple of guys and they like my versatility and believe I’m a guy who can come in and play right away.”
