On Tuesday, four-star forward Papa Kante arrived on campus and began has official visit to Pitt, a source told Pittsburgh Sports Now.
Kante is a 6-foot-10 prospect in the class of 2023 out of South Kent School in Connecticut. According to the 247Sports Composite rankings, he is the No. 116 prospect in the nation. This month alone, Kante has visited Rutgers, Michigan, and Maryland, per Joe Tipton of On3. Michigan was rumored to be the frontrunner for Kante heading into the month, but as he is taking all of these visits, anything can happen in this recruitment.
Kante told Dushawn London of 247 Sports that he is aiming to make a college decision by the start of his upcoming senior year, but does not have a set date for his commitment. While Michigan was the previous favorite according to numerous reports, he has now officially made it on campus for his trip to Pitt, which is significant in itself.
Pitt currently owns the No. 12 recruiting class in 2023 per 247, with the commitments of Marlon Barnes Jr. and Carlton Carrington.
