No official word from Pitt (yet), but yesterday was the start of the college basketball early signing period.
24/7 Sports is reporting (though the story is behind a paywall), that both Mike Young and Josh Newkirk have signed with Pitt.
Josh Newkirk also tweeted out a photo of his signing day late last night.
With John Johnson’s departure, Pitt will definitely have one extra scholarship available. Pitt is still pursuing center BeeJay Anya. Regardless of whether Pitt gets Anya or not, Coach Jamie Dixon has shown he won’t just sit on a scholarship for a year. So, expect it to be used for 2013.
