The Pitt men’s basketball staff was out recruiting hard on Friday night before the Panthers wrap up their non-conference schedule Saturday at Petersen Events Center against Colgate.
Specifically, the Pitt staff checked in on three underclass prospects, according to Jake Weingarten of Stockrisers.
Pitt coaches were at the Slam Dunk to the Beach tournament in Lewes, Delaware, where they saw Class of 2020 forward Terrence Williams. Williams, a four-star prospect, does not yet have a Pitt offer, but has several other high majors chasing after him. He holds offers from DePaul, Georgetown, NC State, Maryland, South Carolina, Stanford, Virginia and Virginia Tech, among others.
Williams’ Gonzaga teammate Myles Stute is another Class of 2020 prospect that has drawn the interest of Pitt coaches. Stute, a 6-foot-5 small forward, is rated as a four-star prospect and the No. 98 player in the 2020 class by 247 Sports. He has offers from Georgetown, Oklahoma State, Penn State and Seton Hall, along with a host of mid-majors.
Stute and Williams beat Our Savior New American, a school from Long Island, New York, by a score of 76-70.
On the other side of that matchup was five-star 2021 prospect Jonathan Kuminga. Kuminga is a 6-foot-8 power forward and the No. 6 sophomore in the country, according to 247 Sports. He scored 40 points in OSNA’s loss, setting a Slam Dunk to the Beach record. Kuminga has a Pitt offer, along with about 15 other high majors.
