Pitt landed its point guard of the future on Sunday as three-star guard Justice Kithcart announced his decision on Twitter. The 6-foot-2 Kithcart had a very good summer on the grassroots circuit and made his commitment to the Panthers during his official visit.
An aggressive, attacking guard, Kithcart is very quick and he uses his athleticism to get in the paint whenever he can. Also a strong defender, Kithcart will have to improve his perimeter jumper before hitting the college ranks, but he’s already very good in transition and should be able to put pressure on defenses right away with his speed.
Playing with Team Loaded Virginia in the adidas Gauntlet this spring and summer, Kithcart averaged 11.3 points, 3 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game. Kithcart is Pitt’s second commitment in the 2016 class, as he joins three-star forward Corey Manigault.
