The Panthers got a bit of a surprise commitment this evening as Syracuse, NY linebacker SirVocea Dennis made it known that he was choosing Pitt.
The 247 Sports 2-star linebacker was originally committed to Air Force, but tells Pittsburgh Sports Now that he’s been in contact with the Pitt coaching staff for “about a week.”
Today, Dennis decided to flip his commitment to Pitt, telling us that its “a place where I think I’d be happy even if I didn’t play football, I think that was a big reason for me pulling the trigger. It’s a school I’ve always wanted to go to and a conference I always wanted to play in.”
At six-foot-one, 204-pounds, Dennis describes himself as a “hybrid linebacker, who can cover but also bang inside with the big guys.”
Dennis is the fourth linebacker to commit to the Panthers in 2019 after Kyi Wright, Brandon George and Leslie Smith and the twentieth player overall.
Pitt is now one player over the scholarship limit.
