Thompson Gets Release from Commitment to Pitt

Thompson Gets Release from Commitment to Pitt

In what comes as a surprise to most, the Pitt basketball team has released Virginia point guard Aaron Thompson from his Letter of Intent.

The point guard from Fairfax, Virginia had been committed to Pitt since May of 2016 and was Kevin Stallings first commitment after becoming Pitt’s head coach.

In a statement released from Pitt, Stallings said “We are excited about the five players we currently have signed and will continue to recruit players committed to forming the foundation of this program. We have added five talented players that will help build a sustainable winning culture through selflessness, accountability and execution.”

Considering he was high school teammates of recent Pitt transfer Corey Manigault, you’d have to wonder if that played some role in this news.

Pitt’s 2017 recruiting class now consists of Marcus Carr, Jared Wilson-Frame, Terrell Brown, Shamiel Stevenson and Peace Illegomah.

Stallings now has five open scholarships that he will likely fill mostly with graduate transfers.
