OK, so maybe my concern over the recruiting two days ago was a little overblown.

Pitt got their 16th football commitment for the class of 2010 yesterday when Andre Givens of Hubbard, OH committed to Pitt. Givens is a 5'10", 185 lb. running back who could potentially make the move to CB or WR. Givens biggest asset is his speed, his 4.46 in the 40 is very impressive for a rising high school senior.

Here's a scouting video that confirms he's fast.

While Givens could change positions down the line, it would seem he is focused on trying to be a running back at the next level.

"I'm shifty. I can cut on a dime at top speed...I'm getting bigger and stronger and trying to be an all-around back."
