Pitt Gets No. 33 Jr PF Bryce Golden

ESPN No. 33 ranked high school junior power forward Bryce Golden has committed to Pitt.

 

The 6-9 big man averaged 15.4 points and 9.6 rebounds this season for St. James School (Hagerstown, MD), when he was named to the Washington County First-Team.

 

Golden is also having a strong spring, averaging 8.5 points and 4.5 rebounds for a Nike EYBL Team Takeover squad that also features No. 36 Jr Jalen Smith and No. 57 Jr SG Myles Dread.

 

“After many talks and conversations with the people close to me, I’d like to commit to the University of Pittsburgh” Golden said via Twitter. “I firmly believe in what [Pitt] coach [Kevin] Stallings is building and I’m excited to be a part of it.”

 

Coach Stallings, who is entering his second season with the Panthers, came from Vanderbilt, where he led the team to seven NCAA tournament berths in 17 seasons.

 

In Golden, Stallings is getting a really skilled big.

 

“Bryce Golden is a intriguing post prospect,” reads Scout’s analysis. “He has good instincts, impressive hands and nice touch around the basket. Golden has a hook in his bag of tricks. He’s also able to step away from the rim and make catch and shoot mid-range jump shots.”

 

The Panthers beat out the likes of NC State, Clemson, and Maryland to land Golden.

 

Golden is Pitt’s first 2018 recruit.
