Brian Batko reports that Thomas Jefferson defensive lineman Devin Danielson committed to Pitt on Tuesday.
"A little more than a month after one Thomas Jefferson defensive lineman verbally committed to Pitt, another opted to join him.
Devin Danielson, an all-state defensive tackle and Post-Gazette Fabulous 22 selection last season, tweeted Tuesday night that he will join Pat Narduzzi's 2018 recruiting class.
"Proud and very excited to say I have fully committed to THE UNIVERSITY OF PITTSBURGH" Danielson wrote.

At 6 feet 3, 290 pounds, Danielson has been wreaking havoc for coach Bill Cherpak's defensive line since he entered high school. It's rare for a freshman to start at powerhouse Thomas Jefferson, last year's Class 4A WPIAL champ, but Danielson did it. He also was one of just two juniors named to the Fab 22, along with Pine-Richland quarterback Phil Jurkovec, and the only junior in the WPIAL on the Class 4A all-state team."
