According to four-star guard Judah Mintz, he has de-committed from Pitt.
Mintz committed to Pitt back in mid-June, after taking an official visit to the Panthers in earlier in the month. Now, months later, after Pitt failed to land commitments from any other players in the class of 2022, lost two key players for this season, and started off the season with a loss to The Citadel, Mintz has decided to take his talents elsewhere.

The Washington D.C. native was set to become the highest-rated player to commit to a Jeff Capel-led Panthers team, as he is ranked No. 43 in the nation according to the ESPN100. Mintz plays his high school ball for the prestigious basketball program Oak Hill, in Mouth of Wilson, Virginia.
The DMV product also took official visits to Georgetown and Penn State prior to his commitment to Pitt, and was also being recruited by Maryland, George Mason, LSU, Virginia Tech, and more.
Mintz becomes the second highly-ranked player to de-commit from Pitt in the last two years, after four-star Jalen Hood-Schifino de-committed last year.
In the 2021 and 2022 classes, Jeff Capel has landed a total of one commitment. That was Nate Santos, who is now playing for the Panthers as a freshman.
