Pitt Hoops Loses Recruit

By: Mike Vukovcan

Pittsburgh (KDKA)- For weeks people have been pointing to a potential issue with Pitt’s basketball roster for next season.

Jame Dixon’s roster was two over the scholarship limit ,but today that issue was helped when one of his incoming recruits decided to attend a prep school.

Jaylen Bond, a forward from Plymouth-Whitemarsh, has decided to attend and won’t be a member of the Pitt basketball team for the 2011-12 season.

This decision means that Bond will re-open his recruiting and will be free to sign with any school.

Bond reportedly said in a statement that since he’s only 17 years old, sitting out a season will help his development and will allow him to contribute immediately as a freshman.

Pitt’s Class of 2011 now consists of forward Khem Birch, center Malcom Gilbert, forward Durand Johnson and guard John Johnson.

    He wont be able to sign with just any school after his Prep year. He can only sign with a non Big East school per Big East rules. The only BE school he can sign with after his Prep year is Pitt…..
