Pitt has received a verbal commitment from Hampton forward Ryan Luther, giving the Panthers their second recruit with WPIAL ties for the Class of 2014.

The 6-foot-8, 210-pound Luther joins a recruiting class that also includes former Beaver Falls star Sheldon Jeter, a 6-8 forward who is spending a year at Polk State College in Florida after transferring from Vanderbilt after his freshman season.

Luther averaged 21 points a game last season to lead Hampton to the WPIAL Class AAAA final after taking the Talbots to the Class AAA final as a sophomore. He chose Pitt over Dayton, Duquesne and George Washington. The latter two schools also are offered scholarships to his twin brother, Colin, a 6-6 guard.

Pitt received a commitment this past spring from another WPIAL star in Lincoln Park sophomore shooting guard Maverick Rowan. The Panthers also are pursuing Satchel Pierce, a 7-foot center from The Kiski School in Saltsburg. Pierce visited Pitt last weekend, is taking an official visit to Miami this weekend and is expected to visit Marquette next week.
