Pitt gets second Florida recruit

Pitt successfully reached into Florida for the second time this year when linebacker James Folston Jr. of Cocoa High School told coach Paul Chryst on Saturday that he plans to enroll next year.
Quarterback Wade Freebeck of St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., gave Pitt a verbal commitment earlier this year.
Pitt, which has 20 verbals from nine states, needs to build pipelines throughout the ACC to supplement its resources in the WPIAL. It also has a promise from defensive tackle Mike Herndon of Staunton, Va.
Pitt has received promises from six WPIAL players. Top area players Shai McKenzie of Washington, Alex Bookser of Mt. Lebanon and Montae Nicholson of Gateway are uncommitted.
Folston, 6-3, 201 pounds, is the son of former Oakland Raiders linebacker James Folston. He is one of seven two-star prospects, according to Rivals.com rankings, in this year’s class. His brother Tarean Folston is a freshman running back at Notre Dame.
With at least 20 recruits coming in next year and only 17 seniors exhausting their eligibility, Chryst will continue to rework the Pitt roster as he enters his third year as head coach.
