We’re another week closer to November 1, and that means we’re locked in on Pitt basketball coverage here at PSN.
Let’s check out the storylines from this week in Pitt basketball.
Jorge Diaz-Graham injured his foot earlier this summer, and this week, PSN received an update on his status via Pitt.
A Pitt spokesperson told Pittsburgh Sports Now on Monday that Diaz-Graham is “progressing well” from the injury. Pitt also told PSN that “he [Diaz-Graham] is on schedule to be back in full capacity in early October.”
DIXON VISITING AGAIN
Junior guard David Dixon out of the prestigious basketball program Gonzaga (DC) will take his second visit to Pitt this weekend.
Dixon was on campus last year, and Houston Wilson of Rivals reported that he’ll be on campus once again as Pitt takes on North Carolina in football. Per Rivals, Dixon is the No. 90 prospect in the class of 2025.
The Panthers added a new walk-on to the roster this week. Jajuan Nelson, a 6-foot-7 forward from Philadelphia, will be joining the team. Pitt now has four walk-ons and 11 scholarship players on this year’s team.
