Brandin Cummings on Commitment to Pitt: ‘It’s Clear that Pitt Basketball is Back’



Just hours following Pitt’s second-straight win over a ranked opponent, Pitt earned some more huge news for the program as four-star guard Brandin Cummings committed to Pitt.

Cummings, the younger brother of Pitt point guard Nelly Cummings, has been to just about every Pitt home game this season to watch his brother. Now, he wants to be a part of the Panthers program too.

“Coach Capel told me and my brother exactly how he wanted this season to go, and he’s executing that,” Cummings told Pittsburgh Sports Now. “It’s clear that Pitt basketball is back. This Pitt program is on a mission, and I want to be a part of that, so I felt like this was the right time to join in.”

Cummings is a 6-foot-3 guard out of Lincoln Park (Midland, PA), who held offers from Pitt, Creighton, South Carolina, and others prior to his commitment to the Panthers on Wednesday. As mentioned earlier in the story, Cummings has been at nearly every game this season, sitting with his family and at times other recruits to watch his brother and the team play. He knew that he wanted to commit to Pitt, and felt that after the recent big wins for the Panthers, now was the time.

“I think the city is realizing that Pitt is the real deal again,” Cummings said. “They’re bringing more energy, and they need to continue to bring more energy.”

Cummings recently scored 33 points in front of Capel in a big WPIAL victory over Laurel Highlands. On Friday, the same night that Pitt took down Virginia, Cummings surpassed the 1,000-point mark for his high-school career. He says his goals for this year are to win the section, win the WPIAL, and win a state championship, all while going undefeated.

“I want to help bring this program to be champions of the ACC and national champions.”

In an article on another site they quote him with ” I consider myself a hardworking, blue collar PG.”

Pardon me. I’m incorrect. He just says blue collar, hardworking G.
