Pitt has landed in the top five of Class of 2019 athlete Alante Brown.
Brown, a consensus three-star athlete and 247 Sports four-star athlete from Simeon High School in Chicago, is 5-foot-10 and 181 pounds and projects to be a wide receiver in college after playing quarterback in high school.
Brown officially de-committed from Michigan State earlier this week. He had originally committed to the Spartans back in June, but did not sign during the early signing period.
The rest of his top five includes Florida State, Iowa State, Tennessee and Texas Tech.
Brown took an official visit to Florida State on Jan. 25 and officially de-committed from Michigan State the next day. Pitt (Jan. 21), Texas Tech (Jan. 16) and Iowa State (Jan. 12) all represent recent offers to Brown, while Tennessee has not yet offered, despite being in Brown’s top five.
Michigan State is the second school that Brown has committed to, only to change his mind. He had previously been committed to Miami-Ohio.
