As expected, Pitt commit Corey Manigault became the second Panthers recruit to decommit after Pitt hired Kevin Stallings as its new head coach.
Manigault follows point guard Justice Kithcart, who also asked for his release from his National Letters of Intent.
Manigault, a 6-foot-8 power forward from Fairfax (VA) Paul VI, announced his decision on Twitter.
Officially decided to reopen my recruitment

Maryland, Providence and Temple are among the schools that have already reached out to Manigault, but that doesn’t mean a decision to once again pick Pitt is out of the question.
Manigault, a four-star prospect, was a consensus top 150 recruit, and was ranked as high as No. 79 by 247 Sports prior to committing to Pitt last year.
He originally chose Pitt over offers from the likes of: Miami, Rhode Island, Temple, VCU, Wake Forrest, Virginia Tech, UMass, Xavier, and Maryland.
