Pitt adds OLB from Baltimore to 2012 class

Pitt coach Todd Graham added the 12th recruit of the 2012 class, when he received a verbal commitment Friday from outside linebacker Devon Porchia.

Rivals.com rates Porchia, who attends Gilman High School in Baltimore, as a three-star prospect. He also had offers from Cincinnati, Buffalo, Rutgers and Wake Forest.

Porchia, 6-foot-2, 203 pounds, considers himself more than a pass-rushing specialist.

"I'm good at that," he said of rushing the passer. "But I'm also good at pass dropping."

Note: Former Gateway star Brendon Felder, a receiver who transferred from North Carolina to Pitt, was denied eligibility for the 2011 season by the NCAA.
