Pitt head Jeff Capel urges on his team against Notre Dame in the second half Saturday, March 10, 2019 at Petersen Events Center.

Ithiel Horton, a 6-foot-3, 200-pound guard who averaged 13.2 points last season as a freshman at Delaware, reported Wednesday on his Instagram account that he plans to transfer to Pitt.

He has previously posted that he was choosing between Pitt and Arkansas. Horton will sit out 2019-20 via NCAA transfer rules and have three seasons of eligibility remaining.

A member of the Colonial Athletic Association all-rookie team in 2018-19, Horton shot 43.3 percent from the field and 40.9 from beyond the 3-point arc while averaging 32.6 minutes for the Blue Hens.

He tied Delaware’s freshman record with 31 points against North Carolina-Wilmington, including a school-record nine 3s.

Horton, a native of Vauxhall, N.J., was a versatile player for the Blue Hens, totaling more assists than turnovers (52/47), with 33 steals. He also was fourth among CAA rookies with 3.1 rebounds per game.

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.
