Pitt Adds Late 2019 Commitment: 3-Star RB Paris Brown



Pitt made a late addition to its recruiting Class of 2019 on Saturday, when Class of 2019 three-star running back Paris Brown, Jr. gave his commitment to the Panthers.

Brown (5-foot-10, 200), is a three-star back from McEachern High School in Powder Springs, Georgia and was named as an honorable mention all-state back by the Georgia Sportswriters Association.

He gave his verbal commitment to coach Archie Collins on Saturday, just after receiving his offer to Pitt.

At one point during his recruitment, the talented running back received offers from Iowa State, Kansas, Kentucky, South Carolina, Syracuse and Wake Forest.

Brown will join a deep running back pool at Pitt, where veterans A.J. Davis, Todd Sibley and Mychale Salahuddin and newcomers Daniel Carter and Vincent Davis will attempt to replace departed 1,000-yard rushers Darrin Hall and Qadree Ollison.

Pitt signed most of its 2019 prospects at either the early signing period in December of the regular signing period in February. The last player to commit in the class was linebacker Sirvocea Davis back on Feb. 2.

The last time Pitt has a player commit after February was in Pat Narduzzi’s first season in 2015, when Rafael Araujo-Lopes committed on May 10 as Narduzzi scrambled to fill his first class after the coaching change caused defections.

Pitt had been expected to be at the 85-scholarship limit entering camp this fall.
