While back home for the holidays, a former Pittsburgh-based prospect, now playing for Overtime Elite in Atlanta, Georgia, took a visit to Pitt.
Amari Evans is a class-of-2025 guard prospect who took a visit to Pitt on Wednesday. The 6-foot-5 recruit played for Bishop Canevin in Pittsburgh as a freshman in high school, but then transferred to New York City to play for Our Saviour Lutheran, a hoops powerhouse. He then transferred once again to compete for Overtime Elite in Atlanta, Georgia. According to 247 Sports’ Composite rankings, he is ranked as a four-star prospect and the No. 65 player in the nation.
Evans received an offer from the Panthers’ staff on December 20. He now has offers from Pitt, Villanova, Providence, Oklahoma State, Marquette, Tennessee, Penn State, and others.
The Panthers have extended offers to ten additional guards in the class of 2025, a group led by local five-star prospect Meleek Thomas out of Lincoln Park. The Panthers currently have two high-school signees, both in the 2024 class: Brandin Cummings (G) and Amdy Ndiaye (F).
