On Wednesday, Marshall transfer Jarrod West chose to commit to a school in the ACC but it wasn’t Pitt, as the senior guard picked Louisville.
Capel and his staff recruited him hard as West told us that he’d heard from a member of the Pitt staff daily since entering the portal.
In this past season at Marshall, he scored 12.5 points per game while also dishing out six assists per contest. West also posted career-highs in both field-goal percentage and 3-point field goal percentage, shooting at 45.8% and 40.8% marks, respectively.
This news means that Pitt’s search for a veteran point guard continues, with one of their top targets still a possibility.
Florida International transfer Antonio Daye has yet to make his decision and he was actually one of the first guards that Capel contacted a few weeks ago.
Pitt is also pursuing forward Nate Santos in the class of 2021, who recently told PSN that he would be making his decision soon.
