The commitments are starting to pour in for the new Panthers staff today. First, Coatesville (PA) HS safety Jay Stocker gave Pat Narduzzi his commitment. The 6'2" 185 pound Stocker needs to add size, but he has excellent range and he can really hit. He is a perfect fit in Narduzzi's defense which values coverage ability and toughness in his safeties. Stocker chose Pitt over, among others, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Georgia Tech, Duke, Maryland, Virginia, Boston College, Illinois, Indiana, Purdue, and Cincinnati.
Not long after Stocker's commitment, Narduzzi followed up by adding Shawn Curtis of Ronald Reagan Doral HS in Miami, FL. The 6'3" 250 pound Curtis will most likely play defensive end. His other offers include Wisconsin, Duke, Mississippi State, Illinois, and UCF.
