Virginia DE Trevion Stevenson De-Commits from Pitt

Virginia DE Trevion Stevenson De-Commits from Pitt

Virginia defensive end Trevion Stevenson has de-committed from Pitt, he announced on Twitter on Thursday.

A 6-foot-4, 217-pound, three-star prospect from Phoebus High School in Hampton, Virginia, Stevenson is the first player to de-commit from Pitt’s Class of 2021, which now stands at 17 players.

Stevenson was originally committed to Old Dominion, but de-committed from then in January, setting off a run of high-level offers that included the Panthers. After Pitt and area recruiter Chris Beatty extended an offer on April 13, Stevenson committed to Pitt on April 22.

Despite again announcing his commitment, Stevenson continued to receive high-level interest, earning offers from Florida on July 7 and Georgia on July 12. After the Georgia offer, Stevenson told Pittsburgh Sports Now that he had no intention of turning back on his commitment to the Panthers.

“Pitt has nothing to worry about with my commitment because I am all in with them,” Stevenson told PSN. “I’m 1,000% committed to them and they will always be number one to me.”

Pitt is now down to one defensive end recruit for 2021, in four-star West Mifflin end Nahki Johnson. With Stevenson’s withdrawal, Pitt’s Class of 2021 ranking fell to No. 31 according to Rivals and No. 30, according to 247. Both of those have Pitt ranked seventh in the ACC.

I wondered who’d be the first de-commit. Never thought it would be him though. So much for 1,000%.

Yeah, I have no issue with kids changing their minds and taking the best oppty for their future, but 1000%? Come on now.

Florida, Georgia or Pitt? Very easy decision.

In a matter of a week he goes from 1000% committed to de-committing. I assume that’s because some of that SEC money came in. I have no problem with that, and I certainly hope he was paid. I just wish it was done above ground so we as fans know the true score.

The young man keeps using the word “Committed”. I do not think the word means what he thinks it means. Why would you want to play for one of the best D-line coaches in the country who will likely have TWO first round draft picks next year??!! Good riddance

Because he wants to be in the NCAA playoffs and attend a football crazy school like Florida or Georgia. He will the. Be playing on national TV every week in front of 100,000 fans. FYI- Florida and Georgia put a few players in the NFL.

Yeah I get all that, but maybe he goes to Georgia and gets lost in the shuffle of 4 and 5 star recruits. It wouldn’t be the first time. Anyway, my point was don’t go around saying you’re 1000% committed if you’re not. I get it, 18 year old kids change their minds, but he’s now walked away from TWO commitments. At some point your word needs to mean something and the new shiny object isn’t always the best choice.

Kids use schools as their “placeholder” all the time. He always wanted to stay down south and once SEC powers with rabid fan support and great pedigree call it was all over for Pitt. He’s gonna get great coaching and top notch facilities, both he and Pitt will be fine.

I guess the new benchmark for trusting one’s word is “10,000%”.
