Pitt scores first commitment of Stallings era


Pittsburgh picked up its first commitment of the Kevin Stallings era on Sunday when 2017 point guard Aaron Thompson pledged to the Panthers. The rising senior visited Pitt this weekend.

A native of Fairfax, Virginia, Thompson attends Paul VI Catholic — the same school that produced 2016 Pitt signee Corey Manigault.

Thompson is the first player in the 2017 class to commit to Pittsburgh. He is a consensus 3-star recruit.
