Running back/safety commits to Pitt

Pitt received its 19th commitment from the Class of 2013 on Thursday night when running back/safety Rachid Ibrahim told coaches he will enroll next year.

Ibrahim (6-foot and 180 pounds) attends Avalon School, a Catholic all-boys school in Gaithersburg, Md.

“You can't ask for a better leader,” Avalon coach Tad Shields said.

Shields said Ibrahim, rated a 3-star prospect by Rivals.com, had offers from Boston College, East Carolina, Iowa and Ohio.
