Diaz Graham Twins Returning to Pitt for 2024-25 Season

Pitt has received a major boost to its frontcourt ahead of the 2024-25 season.

Guillermo and Jorge Diaz Graham will return to Pitt for the 2024-25 season, Pitt basketball announced Tuesday morning on X (formerly known as Twitter). That much-needed size on the interior, and some 3-point shooting from Guillermo, will go a long way in the quest to get back to the NCAA Tournament.

Pitt has restocked a bit via the transfer portal, but steady improvement from the Spanish twins would be a major injection of production across the floor.

The twins arrived as three-star recruits out of IMG Academy in the class of 2022, but they’re Spanish natives. When the Pitt preseason tour went to the Canary Islands last summer, it was a homecoming for the twins.

They’re entering their third season at Pitt, and it’s not unrealistic to expect the twins to make a major leap next season.

Guillermo appeared in 33 games last season, making seven starts, and he was a key rotational piece off the bench. He averaged 6.7 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 0.8 blocks per game with 49/41/60 shooting splits. His size (7-foot-0) is obvious, but his improved 3-point shooting as a sophomore unlocks versatility across the lineup.

He should feature more heavily as a 4 in the lineup, playing alongside Florida State transfer Cam Corhen down low as a floor-spacing big man.

Jorge was only able to play in 16 games last season due to a season-ending foot injury that sidelined him in late January, the same injury that hampered him in the preseason. He averaged 3.5 points, 2.5 and 0.8 assists with 36/29/78 shooting splits.

Jorge was likely held back by his foot injury all season, but with a full offseason to recover, he should enter his junior season as a big (6-foot-11) wing.

Pitt lost Federiko Federiko and Will Jeffress to the transfer portal (and Blake Hinson and Bub Carrington to the NBA Draft), but the additions of Corhen and Houston transfer Damian Dunn have helped bolster the lineup. The return of the twins will go a long way in shoring up a couple of key spots in the lineup.

Overall, we will have a better roster than last season, and it will probably get better before the 2024 season begins.

H2P. I like the roster coming back and additions but none of them are going to be as impactful as Bub (best frosh Ive seen at Pitt in 30 plus years) or Blake. If Im wrong then they will finish in top 3 of ACC. I hope Im wrong!!!
