It’s time to make things official for Brandin Cummings.
Cummings, a high-school guard who has been committed to Pitt since January, will officially sign his National Letter of Intent with Pitt on Thursday morning at 10 a.m. at Lincoln Park High School.
Cummings is a 6-foot-3 guard who is ranked as the No. 126 player in the nation in the class of 2024. He is the younger brother of former Pitt point guard Nelly Cummings. Cummings committed to Pitt in January over offers from South Carolina, Creighton, Duquesne, and others.
“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 at the time of his commitment. “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.”
Pitt also has a forward committed in the 2024 class, as 6-foot-9 forward Amdy Ndiaye verbally committed to the Panthers last week. Ndiaye committed to Pitt shortly after visiting.
“Pitt was a great experience,” Ndiaye told Pittsburgh Sports Now. “When you hear Pittsburgh, you going to think it’s in the middle of nowhere or something, but it’s great honestly. The vibe, the environment, I like it out there. It was a great experience, honestly.”
