Pitt has unveiled the new numbers for its new players entering the 2024-25 season.

Six newcomers are arriving in Pittsburgh prior to the season (two high school recruits, two transfer portal recruits, one European recruit and one walk-on), and those six now have jersey numbers.

Amdy Ndiaye — 0

Damian Dunn — 1

Cam Corhen — 2

Brandin Cummings — 3

Liam Mignogna — 24

Amsal Delalic — 52

Ndiaye and Cummings signed as three- and four-star recruits, respectively, in the class of 2024.

Ndiaye is a 6-foot-10, 205-pound forward from Putnam Science Academy in Connecticut, originally from Dakar, Senegal. He committed to Pitt over offers from Eastern Michigan, Rhode Island, Rutgers and St. Bonaventure.

Cummings is a 6-foot-3, 170-pound guard from Lincoln Park in Midland, Pa. He’s the younger brother of former Panther Nelly Cummings and put together one of the most accomplished high school careers in recent history. He committed to the Panthers over offers from Akron, Bryant, Creighton, Duquesne, Lafayette, South Carolina and Youngstown State.

Pitt also landed a somewhat surprising European commitment from Delalic, one of the top recruits from overseas.

Delalic, a 6-foot-7 forward from Borac Nektar in Bosnia & Herzegovina, committed as the 26th-ranked European recruit born in 2003 — arriving as a much-needed sharpshooting winger.

The Panthers added important transfer portal signings in the form of Houston transfer Damian Dunn and Florida State transfer Cameron Corhen, two pieces who will very likely feature into the rotation in 2024-25.

Dunn, a 6-foot-5 guard who spent last season as a rotational piece following a standout tenure at Temple, is the type of scoring guard that the Panthers needed. Corhen, a 6-foot-10 forward who spent the last two seasons at Florida State, is what the Panthers needed in the front court — his 25-point, 8-rebound performance against Pitt last season serving as a highlight.

Mignogna is a preferred walk-on from Hampton who announced his intentions to join the team in March. He’s coming off a standout high school career in the WPIAL.

Even without Carrington, this roster is loaded. The Pitt staff is doing an excellent job.
