For the last month, all signs were pointing towards the Panthers losing a player from their 2020 Class and today it became official.
This morning, 2020 3-star cornerback Tee Denson (Atlanta, Georgia) announced that he was decommitting from Pitt.
Red flags began popping up last month when Denson tweeted offers that he received from Miami and Virginia Tech despite being committed to Pitt. Although he told PSN that he was still committed to the Panthers, there were some serious doubts about that.
Then over the weekend, Denson received another offer from Wake Forest and started following Wake Forest coaches on Twitter.
The final indicator came last night when he tweeted this out.
at the end of the day u gotta do what’s best for u ..

Following that last night, Denson made it public this morning that he was officially opening up his recruitment.
Following this announcement, Denson told Chad Simmons from Rivals that Pitt didn’t do anything wrong but that he wanted to be sure about his decision.
Denson tells Simmons that he will still consider Pitt but is also looking at Miami, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest. In fact, he’s already arranged an official visit to Wake Forest on November 23. Denson also plans on visiting both Miami and Virginia Tech before signing in December.
Pitt now has 16 verbal commitments and that could drop to 15 depending on what happens with 3-star defensive tackle Tim Brown who was recently arrested in Florida.
