Hopewell senior tailback Rushel Shell made a verbal commitment to Pitt at a press conference at Hopewell Senior High School Friday morning.

Shell, the WPIAL’s all-time rushing leader, addressed the media in the gymnasium at Hopewell Senior High. Pitt and Alabama were the final two schools he was weighing.

Shell says he privately made the decision around the beginning of the 2011 WPIAL football season.
