Pitt BB Recruiting

Pitt Basketball Hosting 2022 Wing Darren Buchanan for Official Visit



Over the weekend, Jeff Capel and the Pitt staff are playing host to Darren Buchanan for the second time in October, Buchanan told PSN.

“My thoughts going into the visit is to just get to know coach Capel and the staff more and to see how I would I fit there,” Buchanan told Pittsburgh Sports Now. “I’m hoping to learn more about the culture they have and is trying to build and more about the basketball program.”

Buchanan is a 6-foot-7, 225-pound wing out of Washington D.C. who is ranked as a three-star prospect by 247 Sports. In addition to Pitt, he is being prioritized by Pitt, George Washington, Richmond, James Madison, Stanford, and Virginia Tech. Back on Oct. 11, he took an unofficial trip to Pitt back for the blue-gold scrimmage.

“I remember I liked how everything was set up on the campus, how the arena was set up, and just how the coaches were to me and my family,” Buchanan said after the visit. “They told me their plan, their goals, and just how they are trying to build their program.”

This summer, Buchanan played with Pitt commit Judah Mintz on Team Durant in the EYBL.

“I actually talked to him today about Pitt,” Buchanan said. “He’s been making his push for me to come up there to Pitt with him, so he has definitely been on me hard.”

Ha, ha. . . Capel is starting to figure out he’s got to starting going to the 3 stars of he’s going to recruit anyone. The Smoke & Mirrors Tour is slowly coming to an end. 3-stars won’t cut it in ACC

Maybe Mintz can close on the kid. Cause Capel seems to have trouble ‘closing’.
