Challingsworth (South Fayette) was the first to commit, de-committing from Toledo after participating in a Pitt prospect camp to join the Panthers.

Clement (Glassboro high school, New Jersey) followed with a commitment of his own. He’s rated as one of the top running backs in the country by both and

He rushed for over 2,500 yards and scored 34 touchdowns in his junior season. Clement chose Pitt over offers from programs like Notre Dame, Florida State, Penn State, Nebraska and West Virginia.
