Pitt received a commitment from Bishop McDevitt standout running back Jameel Poteat this afternoon. He is the Panthers 11th commitment from the class of 2011.
The 5-foot-11, 195-pound Poteat rushed for 1,664 yards and 24 touchdowns last year, and 1,308 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2008.
He chose the Panthers over scholarship offers from USC, Florida, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Iowa, and Rutgers, among others.
Poteat's older cousin Hank was a standout player at Pitt who played for the Steelers and New England Patriots in the NFL.
