Guard Marcus Carr committed to Pitt Wednesday, making him the third member of the Panthers’ 2017 recruiting class.
A 6-2 shooting guard out of Montverde Academy in Montverde, Fla., Carr is rated by Rivals.com as a three-star prospect. He also held offers from, among others, Cincinnati, Baylor, Minnesota, Virginia Tech and Vanderbilt, the last of which marked a recruitment that began with current Pitt coach Kevin Stallings.
The news was first reported by Panther-Lair.com.
Carr is the second guard to pledge to the Panthers under Stallings, joining four-star point guard Aaron Thompson, who committed in May. Terrell Brown — a 6-11, three-star power forward — is the third member of the class.
Pitt has four seniors on its current roster, all of whom were among the team’s top five scorers last season. Stallings and his staff have an additional open scholarship they can use for a recruit in the 2017 class, giving the Panthers five in total (two of which currently haven’t been tied to a commit).
