Four-star RB selects Pitt

6/17/2012

Corey Clement (Glassboro, N.J.), the No. 188-rated player in the ESPN 300, has committed to sign with Pittsburgh, multiple sources report.

Boston College, UConn, Florida State, Iowa, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State Purdue Rutgers, Syracuse, Temple, West Virginia and Wisconsin also extended scholarship offers to Clement.

"If you found what you love, there is no sense in going shopping," Glassboro coach Mark Maccarone told the Star-Ledger. "He feels Pittsburgh is the best fit and gives him the best opportunity to get on the field and get a good college degree and excel in life. If you know it’s the right school then that’s the one you should go with."

The 5-foot-11, 210-pound four-star prospect rushed for 2,510 yards and scored 36 touchdowns during his junior season.

Additionally, wide receiver Zach Challingsworth (McDonald, Pa./South Fayette) has decommitted from Toledo in favor of the Panthers. He also held scholarship offers from Akron, Buffalo, Kent State, Ohio and Temple.

Pittsburgh has seven commitments for 2013. Clement is now the school's top-rated recruit.
