Pitt Is It for Sheard

Pittsburgh has a glowing weakness on defense and that is the defensive line. Today, during national letter of intent day the Panthers addressed the need in a big way.

The Pittsburgh Panthers have picked up a stellar group of defensive linemen with the signings of Tony Tucker, Tommie Duhart and Myles Caragein. The strong class just got a lot stronger as they received a commitment from three-star Florida defensive end Jabaal Sheard.

The 6-foot-3, 235-pound, rush end chose the Panthers over Auburn, Arizona, State and Rutgers just minutes ago at a press conference held at Hollywood Hills High in Hollywood, Fla.

"I just have the size and the speed to be able to make plays," Sheard said. "I just like playing my position and having fun out there."
