It has been a recruiting cycle that Kevin Stallings and his staff have grinded out, but on Friday they got what could be the final piece of good news. Junior college wing Jared Wilson-Frame selected the Panthers after making an official visit to the school.
Wilson-Frame, who is now at Northwest Florida, originally hails from New England and ran with Expressions Elite in the EYBL. A big and physical wing, Wilson-Frame was attracted to Pittsburgh because of their tradition of tough players and how junior college players have had success at the school. Also he wanted the challenge of competing in the ACC.
Now Wilson-Frame is in the fold, and he joins point guard Aaron Thompson, combo guard Marcus Carr, and big man Terrell Brown in what is a very solid first recruiting class for Stallings. Wilson-Frame's physical maturity and experience a the junior college level should play right away, and should give Stallings and the new staff in Pittsburgh a chance to succeed in the rugged conference.
It is possible that the Panthers could add another big into the fold, but this four man class covers a lot of needs for the program, and allows them to build depth and continue to move forward as they hope to become one of the top tier contenders in the ACC.
