Rice Transfer F Mylyjael Poteat To Take Official Visit to Pitt



Starting Monday, Pitt will be hosting another transfer forward, Mylyjael Poteat, on an official visit.

Poteat told Pittsburgh Sports Now that he will be on Pitt’s campus from Monday to Wednesday, and that he will also take trips to UMass and Virginia Tech.

Poteat is a 6-foot-9, 260-pound forward who played one season for Rice. The North Carolina native played in all 33 games for Rice, starting three of them. In his freshman campaign, he averaged 7.7 points and 4.2 rebounds per game. His best scoring performance of the year came against UAB in early January, when he scored a career-high 18 points on 5-for-5 shooting, and went 8 for 9 from the free-throw line.

Pitt still has five spots to fill after the additions of Fede Federiko, Blake Hinson, and Nelly Cummings so far this offseason. With Poteat and Akok Akok both slated to visit this week, the Panthers are clearly trying to nail down the front court and sign a player to man the paint alongside John Hugley.

Any word on how the twins visits went? And what’s the odds they commit to Pitt?

As far as I know, I think that they want to play together. I heard that the Center was offered, but nothing on the fowrad. I think that getting them on Campus was huge and I know that the visit went well. Getting a commitment from both of them would be great.
