UPDATE (3:58 PM)-
It’s not getting as much attention as what Kermit Davis is doing in his first season at Ole Miss. But it should be noted that Jeff Capel inherited a Pitt program that finished 227th at KenPom last season — and he now has it No. 68 following wins over Louisville and Florida State.

UPDATE (12:28 PM)-
**Pitt extends an offer to sophomore wide receiver Agiye Hall from Plant City, Florida. Hall (6’3”, 190) also holds offers from Auburn, Indiana, Iowa State, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina and Central Florida.
UPDATE (10:15 AM)-
** Since Georgia Tech hired Geoff Collins from Temple in December, the Panthers and Yellow Jackets have already gone head to head for a couple recruits, and it seems as if that’s going to continue.
Tuesday, Collins and company took that battle right to Pitt’s doorstep, offering 2021 Gateway running back Derrick Davis. Pitt has been after Davis since his freshman year when the Panthers were the first team to extend him a scholarship offer.
Since then, he’s also received offers from Penn State, West Virginia, Ohio State, Virginia Tech, Michigan, Duke, Kentucky, Baylor, Boston College, Cincinnati, Temple and Toledo.
Blessed to receive an OFFER from Georgia Tech University 🐝 #TOGETHERweSWARM @Coach_NBurton @coachwil_412 pic.twitter.com/sAl2vC1svK

UPDATE (9:15 AM)-
**The latest bracketology forecast from CBS Sports prognosticator Jerry Palm has Pitt in the field of 68 for the 2019 NCAA Tournament.
After Pitt’s upset win over No. 11 Florida State on Monday, Palm has the Panthers as the 11th seed in the Midwest Region, playing in a First Four game against Arizona State.
The Panthers haven’t made the NCAA Tournament since 2016, when they lost to Wisconsin in the first round in Jamie Dixon’s final game as Pitt head coach.
