Keyshon Camp committed and signed with Pitt Wednesday

Florida 4-star defensive tackle Keyshon Camp signed with Pitt Wednesday morning.

Keyshon Camp's relationship with Pitt didn't begin to flourish until late in the recruiting process, but the Panthers remained in pursuit of the Lake Gibson defensive tackle's services. 

The diligence of Pitt's efforts with him paid off massively as the Panthers landed a massive commitment from the 4-star recruit on Signing Day. 

Camp's addition solidifies a recruiting class stuffed with defensive talent, no surprise considering Pat Narduzzi's reputation.  

Camp originally committed to Miami, then flipped to USC. After the Trojans transitioned from Steve Sarkisian to Clay Helton as head coach, Camp decided in January to open his recruitment back up. 

The defensive tackle from Lakeland, Fla., announced his decommitment from USC as he was taking an official visit to Pitt's campus the weekend of Jan. 22-24. Camp did not take a visit this past weekend and chose Pitt today. 

The Panthers beat out Missouri and Michigan for Camp. Missouri seemed to fall out of serious contention once defensive line coach Chris Wilson took a job with the Philadelphia Eagles, and Michigan's efforts were focused on Rashan Gary, the nation's No. 1 overall prospect. 

Camp's commitment now gives Pitt four 4-star recruits in the Class of 2016, alongside Ohio running back George Hill, Central Catholic defensive back Damar Hamlin and fellow defensive tackle Amir Watts. He is also the third Scout 300 player Pitt landed this year, ranked as the nation's No. 271 prospect.

In addition to the aforementioned schools, Camp also fielded offers from Ohio State, Alabama and Florida.
