    Nate Santos, the 6-foot-7, 210-pound wing from Loomis Chaffee (CT) and New Heights AAU, pledged to Pitt on Wednesday via Twitter.

    The 6-foot-7 wing ultimately chose the Panthers over George Washington.

    “I chose Pitt because I thought it was a great opportunity and place to get better and try to help impact the program in whatever way I can,” he said. [Coach Jeff] Capel is a great coach and Pitt is a great environment to grow something special.”

    “Nate was one of the most under-recruited players in the country,” said Adam Berkowitz, the New Heights AAU director. “Pitt is getting a high character, high academic, high level player who can score in a variety of ways. The rabid Pitt fans are going to love him.”

    Pitt saw five players transfer from the program so Santos’ commitment was critical.

    They are continuing to make a push for five-star center Efton Reid, who will announce his decision on April 15th.

    According to 247Sports, Santos is ranked No. 228 nationally is the No. 23 small forward.
