Pitt landed a defensive tackle for the class of 2015 on Tuesday when Kettering (Oh.) Archbishop Alter's Kraig Howe committed to the Panthers.
Howe picked Pitt over offers from Boston College, Illinois, Iowa State, Minnesota, Northwestern, Bowling Green, Miami (OH) and Toledo. He is the eighth recruit to commit to Pitt, joining Apollo-Ridge receiver Tre Tipton, Canon-McMillan offensive lineman Alex Paulina, Altoona linebacker Kevin Givens, Kittanning tight end Nick Bowers, Malvern Prep quarterback Alex Hornibrook, Wilmington (Del.) Alexis I Dupont receiver Quadree Henderson and Hallandale Beach (Fla.) Hallandale defensive back Malik Henderson.
Howe visited Pitt three times in the last year, with two visits in the fall and another unofficial visit this spring. After the spring visit, he spoke very highly of the Panthers.
"Pitt has been one of my favorites for a long time; really, since I got that offer," he said after the visit. "They were my second offer and they've always been up there with my favorites and top choices, and this visit was really a boost for how much I could see myself playing for Pitt and going to school in Pittsburgh and playing for these coaches. I can see myself fitting in well with program and the defensive scheme and the school and the city. It's all clicking."
