Pitt snagged a huge commit on Friday, when highly touted running back Rushel Shell announced he was going to stay close to home and play for the Panthers.

He picked Pitt over Alabama.

Shell, ranked No. 24 on the ESPNU 150, is the No. 3 running back in the nation. Last month, Shell became Western Pennsylvania's all-time leading rusher and now has 7,827 yards. He said in a recent interview with ESPN that he really bonded with Pitt coach Todd Graham and co-offensive coordinator Calvin Magee.
