Pitt received its first basketball commitment from the Class of 2019 on Monday when small forward Gerald Drumgoole announced on Twitter his plans to enroll.

Drumgoole, 6-foot-6, 200 pounds, is rated a three-star prospect by, which ranks him 133rd on its list of the top 150 prospects in the nation.

After averaging 19.8 points, 8.2 rebounds and 4.6 assists last season at Irondequoit High School in Rochester, N.Y., he transferred for his senior year to La Lumiere School in La Porte, Ind. He was a football tight end at Irondequoit and received scholarship offers from Buffalo, Toledo and Old Dominion before deciding to focus on basketball.

Drumgoole has 14 scholarship offers, including Georgia, George Mason, George Washington, St. Bonaventure, Maryland, Minnesota and South Carolina.

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.
