**2020 5-star center Hunter Dickinson (Hyattsville, Maryland) visited Jeff Capel and the Pitt basketball program on Saturday and picked up an offer from the Panthers. Dickinson is rated as one of the top 20 juniors in the country.
**Bad news for one of Pitt’s future ACC opponents. Duke announced yesterday that cornerback Mark Gilbert (hip) and quarterback Daniel Jones (broken left clavicle) would miss the remainder of the season. Jones is a huge loss because he’s considered by some to be a future 1st round pick.
