At any rate, it was PITT, not Rutgers who landed Epps. Scouting services vary on his ranking:
Rivals - #8 PG
Scout.com - #10 PG
ESPN.com - #16 PG
Rivals and Scout both have him listed as a four-star recruit.
If it sticks, this looks to be a solid get for the team. Even if Gibbs and/or Woodall work out, they'll both be Juniors at that time, Epps could have two years to learn before taking over as the starter. All of this assumes quite a bit, but it looks like a good fit for now. Congratulations to Pitt on the first recruit for the 2010-11 season.
