After adding three new players to their Class of 2021, Pitt has lost one member.
Inside linebacker Derrveron Maxwell-Black (St. Petersburg, Florida) announced today that he’s no longer committed to Pitt. It’s not clear yet what led to this announcement.
Recruitment is 100% open 💯

With this announcement, Pitt’s Class of 2021 is down to 22 members and two linebackers, Naquan Brown and Preston Lavant.
Maxwell-Black was originally recruited to Pitt by Rob Harley and committed to the Panthers back on June 25. Despite this move, Pitt is still ranked #19 by Rivals.
This becomes the second player to de-commit from this recruiting class, as Maxwell-Black joins Georgia linebacker Trevion Stevenson.
