Pitt landed its seventh verbal commitment of the 2015 class Saturday when Apollo-Ridge receiver Tre Tipton pledged to play for coach Paul Chryst and the Panthers.
Tipton chose the Panthers over his other finalist, Michigan State. He visited Pitt for the Panthers' prospect camp last weekend.
Per NCAA regulations, Tipton will not be able to officially sign with Pitt until National Signing Day in February.
