Thursday evening, Virginia Episcopal point guard Justice Kithcart and Crisshawn Clark, who’s currently attending Cañada College, both confirmed that they will re-commit to Pitt for next year’s basketball season.
Kithcart reopened his recruitment process after former Pitt head coach Jamie Dixon left for his alma mater Texas Christian University. His commitment had been unclear since Dixon left, but Kithcart confirmed his commitment over Twitter Thursday night. New hire Kevin Stallings granted Clark his release after Dixon left, but Clark confirmed to The Pitt News on Thursday that he will also re-commit to Pitt.
These two announcements mean that Stallings has retained Pitt’s recruiting class for next season, as Corey Manigault confirmed Tuesday that he will also stay committed to the Panthers.
Clark said he “loves everything the city of Pittsburgh has to offer [him] as a person.”
Kithcart also received offers from Clemson, Duquesne and Dixon’s new home base, TCU. He initially accepted Pitt’s offer in September, deeming this decision a “no-brainer.”
In a shout out to Pitt’s fan base on Twitter Thursday night, Kithcart said “Pittsburgh has the greatest fans in the country.”
