On Thursday, Pitt pulled the trigger and offered two class-of-2022 big men from Spain, Jorge Diaz-Graham and Guillermo Diaz-Graham.
The brothers picked up the offers from Pitt after weeks of building a relationship with the staff.

According to Andrew Slater of Pro Insight, the two brothers will both be visiting Florida Atlantic this upcoming weekend. Jorge is 6-foot-10 power forward, while Guillermo is a 7-foot center, and both have expanded their skill sets immensely in the past year or so. Earlier this season, the brothers moved from Spain to the United States to play for IMG Academy in a prep year.
“We have been playing so much so sometimes we just need to look at each other’s eyes to know what to do,” Guillermo said in an interview with Pro Insight. “Our play is like, when he’s in the post, I pass him the ball and just cut to the rim and he gets me. It’s always a free basket. We’ve been doing that so long it’s just like a habit.”
The two brothers received interest from Gonzaga, Loyola Chicago, and others early on in their United States careers, and more schools have continue to take notice and join in the recruitment battle.
Pitt has six open scholarships and no players committed for the 2022-23 season. John Hugley and Max Amadasun are the only forwards currently on the roster after losing Mo Gueye to graduation and Noah Collier and Dan Oladapo to the transfer portal.
