Pitt got a commitment from 6-foot-4 guard Mustapha Heron, but fans will have to wait a few years to see him play at the Petersen Center as he is only a sophomore (class of 2016) at Sacred Heart in Waterbury Connecticut.

He is currently ranked as the No. 13 player in the class of 2016. He also had an offer from Vanderbilt.

Heron, who was recruited by Pitt assistant Barry Rohrssen, is a left-handed strong guard who is known for his physical play and his defense.

He was named to the USA Basketball 16-and-under team this past summer.

Pitt now has two players committed from the class of 2016 as the Panthers had previously gotten a commitment from Lincoln Park guard Maverick Rowan.
