Pitt added another prospect to its 2018 class Thursday when Taysir Mack, who is transferring from Indiana, signed a letter of intent.

Mack, who must sit out the 2018 season per NCAA transfer rules, caught 23 passes for 310 yards and three touchdowns for the Hoosiers this season as a redshirt freshman. He totaled 14 receptions for 243 yards and all three touchdowns in games against Charleston Southern and Purdue.

When Mack, 6-foot-2, 200 pounds, came out of Grand Street Campus High School in Brooklyn in 2016, he was rated the third-best overall prospect in the state of New York. He originally committed to Rutgers before flipping to Indiana, and he also had offers from Penn State and Syracuse.

Mack is the third wide receiver in Pitt's 17-man recruiting class.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
