08:28 AM ET 06.29 | Tra'von Chapman's studying has paid off. [Chapman] went to one of Pitt's prospect camps earlier this summer and was given a laundry list of things he needed to improve on by quarterbacks coach Brooks Bollinger. The interaction with Bollinger, a former NFL quarterback, made a lasting impression on Chapman. So much so that he made a verbal commitment Thursday to the Panthers during an unofficial visit to the school. He was one of two players to commit to the Panthers Thursday. ... Labeled a four-star recruit by rivals.com and scout.com, he is the highest-rated prospect for Pitt in the class of 2013. He said that the opportunity to play for Bollinger was just too good to pass up.

Who is the coach at Pitt? Is it still the guy from Tulsa, or did he already bolt?

I thought Trayvon Chapman was shot this summer, by a white-hispanic.

Sorry..Pitt doesn't make the local talk shows or radio much.

Knew they had a coach that got arrested and never coached a game before he got ****-canned. Then the TU coach went for a yr (he's a piece of crap, BTW)

Thought Chryst was a QB for another irrelevant Midwestern program....I'm so confused

The coach who never coached was hired from Miami.

Chryst was OC at Wisconsin.

Of course we can blame you for this! Hell, we blame each other for stuff worse than that!

Reminds me of the cartoon with the employee and boss talking to each other. Boss says, "I didn't say it was your fault. I said I was going to blame it on you."

They're part of the proposed new "super conference" that will be the best of the best from the Big Least, Mountain West, and MAC

It will be called "LSOP Conference"
