Wade Freebeck says yes to Pitt
The Pittsburgh Panthers scored a commitment Sunday from four-star quarterback Wade Freebeck (Fort Lauderdale, Fla./St. Thomas Aquinas), according to multiple reports.
Akron, Florida, Marshall, Samford and South Florida also extended scholarship offers to the 6-foot-4, 180-pound pocket passer. Alabama, Arkansas and North Carolina showed interest.
"No matter how much you learn, you really don't know until you visit," Freebeck, who made a trip to campus last week, told the Sun Sentinel. "The city, the coaching staff -- I was feeling good. I'm confident in my decision."
The Panthers have 13 pledges for 2014. Freebeck is their highest-rated commitment.
