In a bit of a surprise move four-star wide receiver Adonis Jennings announced his commitment to Pittsburgh live during the third quarter of the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl. The Sicklerville (N.J.) Timber Creek star chose the Panthers over Iowa and Arkansas.
In June Jennings committed to his hometown school, Rutgers, but decommitted in early November after taking an official visit to Iowa. He stayed relatively quiet about his recruitment but it had been rumored that he was getting close to a decision.
"First off I'd like to thank every program that gave me a chance to attend their university," said the 6-foot-3, 190-pound Jennings. "I'd like to thank my parents for all their love and support. I also want to that my coaches for helping me be the best I can be. For the next four years I'll be attending the University of Pittsburgh."
The potential to be a prolific wide receiver for the Panthers really tipped the scales in favor of the Panthers.
"I think I'll play well and fit well in that offense," he said. "I'm going to come in ready to compete"
Jennings had official visits schedule to Pittsburgh on January 17 and to Arkansas on January 24 but he will be cancelling that visit to Arkansas.
Jennings is close with current Arkansas Razorback Damon Mitchell but it seems that he was unable to successfully recruit him.
Jennings was also briefly considering Georgia Tech after he decommitted to from Rutgers.
