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, 180 pounds) attends the Avalon School, a Catholic all-boys school of 100 students in Gaithersburg, Md.
“He is not only the best athlete, but the hardest worker,” Avalon coach Tad Shields said. “You can't ask for a better leader.”
Shields said Ibrahim, rated 3-star prospect by Rivals.com, also had offers from Boston College, East Carolina, Iowa and Ohio.
