Panthers add linebacker

Pitt head coach Paul Chryst added his 16th verbal commitment today when eastern PA linebacker Matt Galambos chose the Panthers.  The 6'2" 222 pound Galambos is from The Haverford School, a private school in Haverford, PA (20 minutes southeast from Philadelphia).  An excellent student, Galambos also had offers from Rutgers, Syracuse, Temple, and Yale.

  2. If there are seven scholarships to give, hope they are:

    1. Foster
    2. D. Johnson
    3. Jones-Smith
    4. JuCo lineman or Officer (guard)
    5. Hush
    6. DL - high schooler
    7. Boyd, RB or another linebacker

    1. If Chryst add another 2-star...
      I highly doubt Johnson, Foster, Boyd will join a team/class full of 2-stars..

    2. Most have him at 3 stars. I also count only one 2 star kid not including the kickers. I got by 247 sports by the way. But only a few 2 star kids universally counting all recruiting sites. Hardly a class of 2 stars. That being said I'm not sure about this kid seems like a stretch. In my opinion we picked up 3 linebackers in a row. If they actually go to the backer spots we at least identified some depth concerns.

  3. Aren't Chapman, Clement and the DLineman from the 2012 class supposed to enroll in January? Wouldn't this allow us to put them with the 2012 class and up the available scholarships to 10?

    1. It doesn't matter when they enroll...
      Pitt has to be at 85 for September.. they are currently at 78-80 right now... not sure exactly.
      With that said, don't know how many ships he has available but it is at least 20.

    2. Also Orndoff and Soto are supposedly enrolling in Jan. I think Joe D is right to we should have 23-20 ships available.

    3. Don't forget that Savage, Guy and two other walk-ons will likely be added on scholarship next season. Maybe just Savage and Guy and the other two (fullback, not Durham and the punter) will be for just 2012.
