Cummings (6-foot-3, 170 pounds) is rated a three-star prospect by Rivals.com. He has scholarship offers from Duquesne, Akron, South Carolina, Lafayette, Akron, Creighton, Youngstown State and Bryant.
The night before Cummings announced his commitment Wednesday morning, Cummings’ brother, Nelly, dished out eight assists and scored six points without a turnover in Pitt’s 68-65 upset of No. 11 Virginia.
The elder Cummings, a graduate senior, is part of Pitt’s all-transfer starting lineup that has led the Panthers to an 11-4 start this season. He leads Pitt in average minutes played (32.7) and assists (5.1) per game while hitting 24 of 25 foul shots and scoring at a 10.7-point rate.
Brandin Cummings is the first member of the class of 2024 to commit to Pitt, joining the Panthers’ three-man class of ’23 — guards Jaland Lowe and Carlton Carrington and forward Marlon Barnes.
