Bryce Golden, one of Pitt’s two signees in the Class of 2018 under former head coach Kevin Stallings, is no longer considering the school.
Golden, a 6-foot-9 forward from St. James School in Hagerstown, Maryland was the only freshman that had committed to Pitt under Stallings. When the former coach was fired, Golden asked for and received his release from his National Letter of Intent that he signed with Pitt.
When the Panthers announced the hiring of new head coach Jeff Capel, Golden told Pittsburgh Sports Now that it was a “great hire.”
But on Monday evening, Golden released a new top group of schools on Twitter that included Butler, Connecticut, Georgetown, Illinois, Syracuse and Wichita State.
