Pitt picked up its 15th verbal commitment of the 2014 class Saturday when Hilliard (Ohio) cornerback Phillipie Motley gave his pledge to Panthers coach Paul Chryst.
Motley is rated as a three-star prospect by Rivals.com, and chose the Panthers over offers from Akron, Ball State, Kent State, Toledo and Ohio, among others.
"I just committed to PITT for football!!!" Motley posted on his personal Twitter account Saturday. He is the third defensive back to join the 2014 class, joining Patrick Amara, Avonte Maddox and Jalen Williams.
