Pitt forward Terrell Brown will return to the team for the 2018-19 season, the rising sophomore announced with an Instagram post on Monday night.
Brown, a 6-foot-10 forward from Providence, Rhode Island, averaged 4.4 points and 3.4 rebounds per game in his first season with the team in 2017-18.
After starting slow, Brown started to turn things on down the stretch. He scored 14 points at North Carolina on Feb. 3 and a season-high 19 at Clemson on Feb. 8. He also grabbed eight rebounds against the Tigers, tying a season high that he also reached on Feb. 28 at Notre Dame, when he had 10 points and eight rebounds.
Brown had been one of the team’s most outspoken supporters of former head coach Kevin Stallings.
“We all believe in Coach Stallings,” Brown said after Pitt’s ACC Tournament loss to Notre Dame. “He recruited all of us. He personally came to all of us. We were all freshmen. He came to us and we put our trust in him.”
Brown joins shooting guard Khameron Davis, small forward Shamiel Stevenson and guard/forward Jared Wilson-Frame as players that have announced their intentions to return to Pitt following the hiring of new head coach Jeff Capel.
Forward Ryan Luther and point guard Marcus Carr are among the Pitt players that have requested their release from the school, but have not officially announced their intentions. Shooting guard Parker Stewart has announced he will not return.
