This week, two of Pitt’s class-of-2023 basketball signees have received national recognition for their respective stellar performances this season as seniors.
Jaland Lowe, a 6-foot-1 point guard from Houston, was one of 33 players in the state of Texas nominated for the McDonald’s All-American Game earlier in the week. Shortly after receiving that honor, Lowe’s ranking on 247 Sports jumped up into the top-80. In the update, Lowe was ranked as the No. 76 player in the country after previously being the No. 82 player. Carrington, a 6-foot-4 guard from Baltimore, MD, made a bigger jump. The sharp-shooting combo guard leaped from No. 117 into the top-100 at No. 96 in the nation.
Pitt’s third signee Marlon Barnes did not crack 247’s top-150, as he was ranked as the No. 193 player in the site’s composite rankings.
All three of Pitt’s signees in the class made the trip up to Pittsburgh last week to watch Pitt play against Clemson. PSN also scouted Carrington in a rivalry game against Baltimore powerhouse MSJ last week. Check out how he performed in the report below.
