On Friday, Pitt hosted transfer target Nelly Cummings, as well as his younger brother Brandin, on a visit of the campus.
The older of the two, Nelly recently became Pitt’s highest priority transfer target as soon as he hit the portal after playing for Colgate.
As soon as he entered the portal, Jeff Capel and the rest of his staff began to recruit him hard, as well as several other high-major programs. Cummings told PSN that in addition to Pitt, he heard from schools such as Arkansas, Oklahoma, Florida, NC State, VCU, Stanford, and many more.
At Colgate this season, Cummings averaged more than 14 points and three assists per game. He scored over 1,000 points in his three seasons there.
Nelly’s younger brother Brandin is a 6-foot-2 guard in the class of 2024 who plays for Lincoln Park High School. This season, he averaged 21 points and three assists and saw his recruitment expand at the division one level. Brandin holds offers from South Carolina, Bryant, and Youngstown State with interest from Pitt and Robert Morris.
Both brothers confirmed to PSN that they were on campus today, and were led around by assistants Jason Capel and Tim O’Toole.
“It was good,” Brandin told Pittsburgh Sports Now about the visit. “Probably the best experience of a visit I’ve been on.”
