Over the weekend, Pitt has hosted another guard on an official visit, this time being a big target that it would like to bring in as a quality veteran shooter off the bench.
The Panthers are hosting Greg Elliott, a 6-foot-3 guard who played four seasons at Marquette. Elliott averaged seven points per game this season, his fourth with the Golden Eagles. He played 114 games in his Marquette career and shot 39% from three-point range this season on a career-high 3.1 three-point attempts per game.
While on the visit, Elliott shared this photo of him on the trip with Pittsburgh Sports Now. Elliott is pictured with the one of the newest members of the Pitt staff, Assistant AD of Scouting Jake Presutti. Prior to joining the Pitt staff last year, Presutti was an assistant coach at Marquette, coaching Elliott there.
Elliott’s two biggest games this past season were a 22-point performance against UCLA and a career-high 25 against DePaul in January.
If he does choose to commit to Pitt, Elliott will come off the bench behind Nelly Cummings, Jamarius Burton, and Nike Sibande and showcase his shooting skills on the wing. The Panthers have added five new players to the roster this off-season, picking up Cummings, Blake Hinson, Fede Federiko, Jorge Diaz-Graham, and Guillermo Diaz-Graham.
The Panthers have three scholarships remaining for next year’s roster and would like to use them on a veteran guard, a wing and big man to play in the post.
