Pitt Commit Marlon Barnes Ranked in Top-85 in Rivals Rankings Update



On Thursday, Pitt commit Marlon Barnes fell two spots to No. 81 in the nation in the updated Rivals rankings for the class of 2023.

Barnes committed to Pitt back on Jan. 9, after building a solid relationship with the staff for more than a year.

The 6-foot-6 wing broke down his commitment with Pittsburgh Sports Now shortly after his announcement.

“I just felt like Coach Capel, both Jason and Jeff, they’ve been on me since day one,” Barnes told PSN. “They make me feel like if I come there, it will feel like I am home. I believe in what they’ve got going on, and also, my parents do as well.”

Still zippo for the class of 2022. And one small forward kid for 2023. Only means Pitt will continue to inhabit the lower echelons of the ACC. Time to move on.

To Date, Coach capel is an average recruiter, elow average coach, but a nice guy, and Heather Lyke likes the job he is doing. So, what is the starting 5 for next season?

Recruiting Pitt is 100% more difficult than recruiting Duke. That plus the COVID hacked seasons and just plain bad luck. I’m going to stick with Heather on this and ride this out. I know she’s feeling the pressure and she still has confidence that Coach was more than a assistant bench cheerleader from Duke. You know Jeff must be asking himself the same thing.
No disrespect intended, just hope he can turn this around 1 – 2 more years will tell.
