Not only did the basketball team play great in beating Syracuse, but the atmosphere was great for the Pitt football prospects who were raving about their visits. Shai McKenzie, for one, tweeted that he is bonding quickly with Pitt already. Some also pleasant surprises were that one of the best CB prospects in the country, Troy Vincent, Jr. of Maryland, made the trip, as did two elite in-state '15 prospects, Bishop McDevitt RB Andre Robinson and Central Valley CB Jordan Whitehead.
The basketball team did great, the fans were great, and the football prospects were loving their visit. Can't have a better day than that and it's about time that the university had some great news on the sports front.
