Jeff Capel and the Pitt coaching staff aren’t quite done adding to the 2024-25 roster, not with a couple of scholarships still available.

Pitt is hosting Amsal Delalic — a 6-foot-7 wing from Borac Nektar in Bosnia & Herzegovina — for a visit on Wednesday, Chris Peak of Panther-Lair reported. He’s a sharpshooting 20-year-old with some size.

Delalic is coming off a season with Borac Netkar in the Championship of Bosnia and Herzegovina and ABA League Second Division in which he averaged 13.9 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game on 46/42/80 shooting splits.

Eurospects rates Delalic as the 26th-ranked European among prospects born in 2003.

Pitt has done a good job of adding to positions of need this offseason, picking up commitments from guard Damian Dunn (Houston) and forward Cam Corhen (Florida State), but there’s still a need for a sharpshooter on the roster. The loss of Blake Hinson still hasn’t been addressed.

Delalic would add a dose of size and shooting on the wing. There’s no guarantee that his game would immediately translate to the NCAA level, but he’s played against professionals for a couple of seasons now — to a degree of success.

The Pitt frontcourt features Papa Kante, Marlon Barnes, Guillermo and Jorge Diaz-Graham, Zack Austin, Amdy Ndiaye and Corhen, and Delilac would be a solid addition with long-term potential.
