Pitt finalizes class of 24 signees
By Brian Bennett
It was a relatively stress-free signing day for Dave Wannstedt and his staff.
Pitt, which had wrapped up most of its 2010 recruiting weeks ago, signed all 24 of its commitments today, the school announced.
"We had an outstanding season on the field this fall and that momentum carried over to our coaches’ recruiting efforts,” Wannstedt said. “Prospects are recognizing the national emergence of our program and they want to be part of that."
Pitt will likely be ranked at or near the top of the class rankings in the Big East. Some of the headliners include the Pennsylvania all-staters like defensive lineman Aaron Donald, quarterback Anthony Gonzalez and receiver Kevin Weatherspoon, plus top New Jersey prospect and defensive lineman T.J. Clemmings, as well as prep school standout Todd Thomas.
