Pitt Offers 3-Point Specialist Sloan Seymour

Pitt Offers 3-Point Specialist Sloan Seymour

One of the positions that Jamie Dixon was never able to recruit was a consistent 3-point shooter.

Aside from Ronald Ramon and Cam Johnson, the Pitt basketball program has always lacked a true three-point shooting threat.

Time will tell if Kevin Stallings will be more successful at recruiting one but last night the Panthers offered a player that is a pure shooter.

Last night, Sloan Seymour, a 6-foot-8 forward from Albany, New York received the news that he’d earned an offer from Pitt.

Seymour now holds offers from UMass, Rhode Island, Rutgers, St. John’s, St. Joseph’s and South Florida.

This offer was a bit of surprise for Seymour because he hadn’t heard a lot from the coaches.

“This I see actually one of the first times I’ve heard from Pitt. They just watched me at my last tournament in Vegas at the end of July. Coach Cage called me today and said after they got home and organized, got all their notes collected and looked things over. He then said they have an open scholarship at my position and would love for me to take it. Pitt believes I’d be a great fit in their offense because they don’t have anyone that does what I do best and that’s shoot the ball,” said Seymour.

“The offer was a bit surprising but stuff like this happens when you least expect it. I was excited with it and felt that with the body of work I put in was good enough to get an ACC offer like Pitt. They’re such a good program and play a style of basketball that I’d fit in perfectly to.”

Seymour tells PSN that he’s in the process of lining up his official visits and has talked to Pitt about making a visit. In fact, he’ll be talking to Kevin Stallings later in the week to discuss that more in depth.

“As far as making a decision, I don’t really have a time frame for it. Once I know where the right school is, that I feel the most comfortable and excel at most, then I’ll realize it and make my decision then.”

What about Ashton Gibbs? Despite being miscast as a PG, he was a hell of a three point shooter
