Loliya Briggs of Jacksonville, Fla. (ESPN HoopGurlz)
Agnus Berenato loses four players to graduation this season, so this five-player class should hit campus and battle early for time.
The top three prospects all land in the top 100 with Loliya Briggs, the 5-foot-11 guard from Jacksonville, Fla., leading the way at No. 50. The Panthers should hope Briggs is similar to Shavonte Zellous, the last standout Floridian they had in their backcourt. The truth is there are some similarities, none more important than the ability to carry an offense by creating shots.
Pittsburgh also inked a dynamite point guard prospect, Brianna Kiesel, out of New York. The 5-7 four-star prospect is the No. 12 point guard in the class and No. 58 prospect overall. Pairing her with Briggs could combine for one of the more athletic and lethal backcourts in the Big East.
The Panthers also added three frontcourt players with No. 97 Chyna Golden from Bradley Beach N.J., Cora McManus from Seattle, Wash., and Tianna Porter from Paris, Tenn.
The Pitt class remains unchanged from the early signing period.
