The Pitt basketball staff reached out to more than 12 recruits in the rising junior class of 2026 over the weekend.

Pitt’s basketball staff was hard at work this weekend, making calls to 2026 prospects for the first time.

On Saturday, June 15 at midnight, college basketball staffs were finally able to contact recruits in the 2026 class, and Pitt, like many staffs around the country, took advantage of the contact period right from the start.

The Panthers’ staff contacted the following recruits, and more.

CHRISTIAN COLLINS

Collins is a 6-foot-8 forward out of St. Bernard HS in Playa Del Rey, California.
