Pitt head coach Paul Chryst received his second verbal commitment in as many days when James Connor of Erie McDowell said he plans to play for the Panthers next year.
 
Conner, 6-2 and 235-pounds, has added size since his junior year and can play multiple positions, including linebacker, defensive end and running back. He'll play defensive end and running back as a senior.


Conner set a McDowell school record with 12 sacks as a junior in 2011. He also had offers from MAC programs Toledo, Ohio, Eastern Michigan and Bowling Green.
