Pittsburgh has received commitments from four players for the 2014 season with the most recent being 5-10 guard Yacine Diop (Pittsburgh, Pa./Seton La Salle). The Panthers also have commitments from Naje Gibson (Pittsburgh/Seton La Salle), Stasha Carey (Middleburg Heights, Ohio/Midpark) and Aysia Bugg (Boilingbrook, Ill./Boilingbrook). The recruiting class includes three four-star recruits and one three-star recruit.
Gibson, who is ranked No. 59 by ESPN HoopGurlz in the 2014 class, is a long and athletic shooting guard. The 6-0 guard likes to attack the rim and excels in transition. She also is an active defender and has a nice mid-range game.
Diop, a native of Dakar, Senagal, committed to the Panthers on Oct. 24. The 5-10 guard is ranked the No.84 prospect in the class according to HoopGurlz and has a strong work ethic. She is ultra-athletic and thrives on the defensive end due to length and physical strength. Diop also considered Dayton and California.
Carey, a 6-3 post player, is ranked the 90th best prospect in the class by HoopGurlz. She is very agile and possesses soft touch around the rim. She is a very good rebounder and will get out in transition.
Bugg, a three-star recruit, has good handles and likes to attack in transition.
