Report: Adou Thiero Releases Top Five List, Includes Pitt



According to ESPN recruiting analyst Jeff Borzello, Pittsburgh-area native Adou Thiero has trimmed his list of schools down to five.

Thiero is down to the following schools in his recruitment: Pitt, North Carolina, Arkansas, Indiana, and Kentucky. Thiero played his first two seasons of college basketball at Kentucky under head coach John Calipari, who is now the head coach at Arkansas. Thiero is still considering a return to Kentucky to play for new head coach Mark Pope (previously HC at BYU).

Thiero is a Leetsdale, PA native and played for Quaker Valley in his high-school career. He has grown up to 6-foot-8 now, and has improved his game each year of his career. Thiero averaged 7.2 points and five rebounds per game this past season for the Wildcats, hitting 49% of his field-goal attempts. Thiero had perhaps his best game of the season in the non-conference schedule, as he scored 16 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in a game against No. 1 Kansas.

Pitt offered Thiero late in his recruiting process in high-school, as the talented guard gained traction in his recruitment. Thiero visited Indiana in the spring of his senior year, but at that time, he had interest from mostly mid-major programs such as Robert Morris, Elon, UCSB, Duquesne, UTEP, and Akron. However, as Thiero grew and improved his game, he turned into a dominant player in high-school ball and has proven that he can compete at the highest level of college ball now as well.

Pitt has already added two players from the transfer portal this spring, bringing in Houston transfer Damian Dunn and Florida State transfer Cam Corhen. The Panthers have two open scholarships remaining.
