The Pitt basketball program needs to add talented depth to their roster and Jeff Capel is doing everything possible to make that happen.
Friday night, Capel was at Greensburg Salem High School to watch 2023 freshman guard Rodney Gallagher, which led to an offer this morning.
On Saturday, Capel was on the recruiting trail again, this time it was to Edinboro University to watch 2020 4-star wing William Jeffress, who’s Erie McDowell team defeated Peters Township, 69-58.
It was pretty cool sitting next to Jeff Capel for the McDowell game. A lot of people came up to him for photos and to talk to him during the game and he handled it all with class.

After re-classifying to the Class of 2020, Jeffress released a Top 10 of Pitt, Baylor, Penn State, Stanford, Memphis, Vanderbilt, Northwestern, Virginia, Notre Dame and Villanova.
Jeffress will not start making any official visits until his team is finished with the PIAA playoffs, although I’m told some visits could be decided on soon.
Erie McDowell will next play on Wednesday against Central York. The time and location of the game has yet to be determined.
