On Friday, Pitt’s top priority, Daniel Skillings, included the Panthers in his top five schools list.
Skillings, a 6-foot-6, 195-pound wing who is ranked as the No. 89 player in the nation according to the 247 Sports Composite. According to the On3.com rankings, Skillings is the No. 40 player in the class.
Just weeks ago, Pitt made Skillings’ top ten list alongside Cincinnati, Virginia Tech, Miami, NC State, Minnesota, Rhode Island, Temple, St. Johns, and Georgia. Now, with official visits to Cincinnati, Pitt, and NC State under his belt, he has trimmed the list to just five: Pitt, Cincinnati, NC State, Virginia Tech, and Miami.

Over the summer, Skillings was one of the highest risers in the nation, going from unranked with no offers to a high-major, four-star prospect. At the moment, all five schools seem to be in the mix, although NC State, Pitt, and Cincinnati seem to have a slight edge because they got Skillings on campus for official visits first.
