On Tuesday, Pitt head coach Jeff Capel will be in attendance at Keystone Prep to check out four-star Yann Farrell, Farrell’s coach told Pittsburgh Sports Now.
Farrell is a 6-foot-7, 190-pound small forward who can play the two as well according to his coach. Ranked as the No. 99 prospect in the nation by 247 Sports, Farrell is one of the highest ranked wing prospects left on the board and has become on of Pitt’s top targets as of late. Although he still does not hold an offer from Pitt, this is Capel’s second time heading out to Keystone to take a look at him directly at practice.
“He looks really good,” Keystone Prep Vice President Tom Droney told PSN. “Ball skills that I was surprised about, gets to his spots off the bounce and can knock down catch and shoot 3’s. Great percentages in EYBL on low usage alongside ball dominant guards. He will have his chance to show what he can do, the ball will be in his hands a lot this school season. Good student too.”
In addition to Pitt, Farrell holds offers from UConn, Syracuse, St. Johns, West Virginia, and many more. Depending on how practice goes as well as how the relationship between Farrell and the staff evolves, an offer from Pitt does not seem very far away for Farrell.
Based on recent activity from Capel, Farrell, Darren Buchanan and Fray Nguimbi seem to be Pitt’s top wing targets in the 2022 class.
