The month of June has been full of commitments, but as always, there can — and will — be decommitments along the way.
The first decommitment of Pitt’s class of 2024 has arrived in the form of Chasen Johnson.
Johnson — a 6-foot-1, 180-pound three-star cornerback from Seminole High School in Seminole, Florida — officially announced his commitment to Pitt on June 11, following an official visit to Pittsburgh over the weekend, but he announced his decommitment Friday afternoon.
He committed to Pitt over offers from Appalachian State, Cincinnati, Connecticut, FAU, Florida State, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa State, Louisville, Massachusetts, Missouri, Oregon State, Troy, UCF and Western Michigan.
“First off I want to thank god for blessing me in the position I’m in today, without him none of this would be possible,” Chasen Johnson wrote on Twitter. “With that being said I will be decommitting from the University of Pittsburgh. I want to thank Coach Collins, Coach Narduzzi and the rest of the staff for the love they have shown throughout this long process.”

It appears that Johnson wants to continue to go through the recruiting process as he took an official visit to nearby UCF last weekend. And the decommitment was likely a mutual decision.
247Sports rates Johnson as the 1,036th-ranked recruit in the class (75th-ranked cornerback and 114th-ranked recruit from Florida) while On3 rates him as the 1,042nd-ranked recruit in the class (110th-ranked cornerback and 138th-ranked recruit from Florida).
Rivals hasn’t rated him yet, but he does hold a 5.6 Rivals Rating.
Pitt has secured commitments from defensive backs in three-star Allen Bryant, three-star Tayshawn Banks, three-star Nigel Maynard and three-star Davion Pritchard, and there will likely be another defensive back commitment on the way in the near future.
Pitt is also currently hosting a new crop of official visitors this weekend. So, there will very likely be a couple more commitments.
