Pitt basketball lands 3-star guard from Tennessee for 2017-18
Pitt continued to add to its 2017-18 recruiting class Monday night, as Union City (Tenn.) shooting guard Parker Stewart verbally committed to the Panthers, according to a source.
Rated a three-star recruit by Rivals, Stewart originally signed with Mississippi but asked for and received a release from his letter of intent. He held offers from more than a dozen schools, including Butler, Georgetown, Georgia Tech, Kansas State, LSU, Memphis, Missouri, N.C. State and Wisconsin.
The 6-foot-4, 175-pound Stewart announced his decision on Twitter, writing: "Excited to announce I will be joining the Pittsburgh Panther family, play for Coach Stallings, and compete in best conference, the ACC."
