Pittsburgh (KDKA)- In less than 24 hours, Pitt head coach Todd Graham has received two verbal commitments.

Defensive end Myles Hilliard selected the Panthers Friday morning and then they received another pledge last night.

Chris Peak of is reporting that Cincinnati (Oh.) St. Xavier offensive lineman Brandyn Cook pulled the trigger last night.

Cook was an official visit to the campus yesterday and decided Pitt was it.

Cook (6-1, 290 lbs.) is being recruited to play center for the Panthers.

Peak reports that Pitt really liked Cook’s ability to snap the ball from the shotgun offense. His high school team’s offense used shotgun 60% of the time.

He also had scholarship offers from Miami (Oh.) and Youngstown State, and was receiving interest from most of the MAC schools.
