Virginia defensive end Trevion Stevenson has de-committed from Pitt, he announced on Twitter on Thursday.
After talking with my family and coaches, I have decided to decommit from the University of Pittsburgh. I would like to thank Pitt’s coaching staff for the opportunity and the fans for all of the love during this process. Pitt has been grade “A” from the very beginning.

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.
