Jeff Capel landed another highly rated recruit when Au’Diese Toney verbally committed to Pitt today — joining Xavier Johnson, Curtis Aiken and Trey McGowens in Pitt’s class of 2018.

The Fayetteville, North Carolina native is considered one of the Top 150 players in the country and ranked a 4-star recruit by 247 Sports. At 6-foot-6 — and fluent in three positions — Toney will give Capel versatility on the court.
Toney turned down secured offers from Kansas State, Virginia, Virginia Tech and others in favor of Pitt. According to Panther-Lair, Toney has faith that Capel will push Pitt toward success.
“I love Coach [Jeff] Capel, he is a great coach and he will definitely turn the program around,” he said.
Capel has one scholarship left to award to a new recruit, if he finds a player to fit the new team.
