Pitt football's recruiting total for 2010 is now up to ten.
"Don Bosco Prep stars Bryan Murphy and Brandon Sacco committed to the Panthers early this afternoon, bringing the Panthers total to 10 commitments from the class of 2010."
Murphy, a DE from New Jersey, may have been the biggest pickup today. He was a highly-desired recruit, offered by Louisville, Michigan State, and many others.
Don't discount the other three, though:
"Sacco, an offensive lineman, chose Pitt over Big East rival Rutgers. Murphy, who was recruited as a defensive end, had offers from several schools, including Boston College, Colorado, Louisville, Maryland and Michigan State.
Weatherspoon had 57 receptions for 1,470 yards and 20 touchdowns while helping to lead Clairton to the WPIAL Class A championship and the PIAA title game. He is a member of the Tribune-Review Terrific 25.
Also, T.J. Peeler of Broad Run High School in Ashburn, Va., committed to Pitt. Peeler, a 6-foot-1, 200-pound running back, had offers from West Virginia and North Carolina State. He missed three games with an injury last season, but rushed for 1,145 yards and 18 touchdowns on 129 carries with an 8.9 yard average."
8.9 yard average? Man, you almost want to give him (Peeler) the ball every time.
