Coach Capel of the Pittsburgh Panthers has continued to strike hot deals with top high school recruits from around the country.

After the program picked up its highest-rated commitment in a decade by landing four-star Class of 2022 point guard Dior Johnson, the recruiting momentum continued on Wednesday when the Panthers received a commitment from four-star combo guard Carlton Carrington live on CBS Sports HQ.

Carrington, who is ranked the No. 19 guard prospect in the Class of 2023, chose the Panthers over Stanford, Loyola Chicago, George Mason, and Iona.

A versatile 6-4 guard, the athlete plays for St. Frances Academy in Baltimore and is considered the No. 3 player in Maryland and overall No. 99 player for the 2023 class.

Carrington previously played for Team Melo on the travel circuit, where he gained a reputation for his mid-range game and consistency with playing high IQ basketball.

With Carrington's commitment, Pittsburgh's 2023 recruiting class now ranks 10th nationally, according to team ranking reports.
