Panthers add three recruits

Pitt has added three recruits with verbal commitments from Altoona’s A.J. Alexander, Lakeland’s Justin Virbitsky and West Boca Raton’s Joe Trebitz.

Alexander, a speedy all-purpose back who rushed for more than 1,000 yards this past season, announced his decision during a live chat on Scout.com at 8 p.m. He chose Pitt over Florida State, North Carolina and Tennessee.

Virbitsky, a 6-foot-4, 255-pound tight end who was a Class AA all-state selection, chose the Panthers over offers from Akron, Buffalo, Duke and Temple.

Trebitz is a 6-3, 200-pound middle linebacker from Florida. He had offers from Air Force, Florida Atlantic, Florida International and Western Michigan.

Pitt now has 19 recruits in the Class of 2008.
