Pitt landed its 20th verbal commitment of the 2014 high school class Saturday night when Cocoa, Fla., linebacker James Folston, Jr., gave his pledge to coach Paul Chryst and the Panthers, according to multiple reports.
Folston is rated as a two-star prospect on Rivals.com and chose Pitt over offers from Minnesota and South Florida.
He is the second linebacker in the class, joining Fox Chapel senior Quintin Wirginis.
Folston is the second player from Florida in the 2014 class, joining quarterback Wade Freebeck. The two will join receiver Ronald Jones and defensive lineman LaQuentin Smith as the only Floridians on Pitt's roster next season.
