Over the course of the past few months, Pitt has been right near the top of every story regarding Barlow. Jeff Capel was the first high-major coach to offer Barlow, and was also the first and only college coach to host Barlow on an official visit.
Over the summer, Barlow exploded onto the national scene, picking up a handful of offers including Kansas, Florida, Syracuse, Ohio State, Illinois, and many more. While he was receiving all of those offers, he still stayed firm that he appreciated and valued Pitt’s long-term interest in him, which led many to think that Pitt would still be a major player in his recruitment. However, in the end, he chose to take a different path and skip the college route completely.
“Dominick is an exciting prospect that brings an unusual versatility on and off the ball, and on both ends of the court. He’s long, athletic, and brings that New Jersey toughness that’s driven his growth in recent years,” Brandon Williams, Head of Basketball Operations at Overtime Elite told 247 Sports. “Among amateurs and pros, Dominick has demonstrated an ability to elevate his game, guarding multiple positions, and aggressive playmaking. This is a strong addition to the OTE environment.”
