Pitt adds walk-on guard K.J. Marshall to 2019-20 roster

Jerry DiPaola

K.J. Marshall, who played in three state high school championship games in North Carolina, has joined Pitt’s team as a freshman walk-on guard. Marshall, 5-foot-11, 160 pounds, was a high school teammate of Pitt sophomore Au’Diese Toney.

Marshall averaged 9.5 and 9.4 points over the past two seasons, hit 84 3-point shots and was ranked the No. 77 player in North Carolina at Trinity Christian. His teams won two state championships and 85 games while he scored more than 1,000 career points.

Pitt’s recruiting class also includes graduate transfer Eric Hamilton, junior college guard Ryan Murphy and freshmen Justin Champagnie, Karim Coulibaly and Gerald Drumgoole. Ithiel Horton, a Colonial Athletic Association All-Rookie Team selection at Delaware last season, will sit out the 2019-20 season after transferring. Pitt also has starters Xavier Johnson, who earned All-ACC freshman honors last season, Trey McGowens, Terrell Brown and Toney returning next season.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com 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.
