Pittsburgh coach Jeff Capel answers a question during the Atlantic Coast Conference NCAA college basketball media day in Charlotte, N.C., Tuesday, Oct. 8, 2019.

Pitt landed some additional size for its class of 2020 when 6-foot-9, 240-pound center John Hugley IV told coach Jeff Capel he plans to enroll next year.

Hugley, who attends Brush High School in Cleveland, is a four-star prospect who is ranked the No. 14 center in the U.S. by 247sports.com. He also is rated the 117th overall prospect in the nation and the top center in Ohio.

Hugley has offers from several schools, including N.C. State, Miami, Florida State, Iowa, Penn State, Xavier, Dayton, Duquesne and Kansas State.

He joins Max Amadasun, a 6-10 prospect from The Bronx, and 6-7 power forward Noah Collier of Norristown among Pitt’s three verbal commitments from this season’s senior class. Amadasun committed to Capel on Monday.

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.
