Jamie Dixon got some much-needed good news on Sunday night, when 6-5 guard Maverick Rowan, out of nearby Lincoln Park, committed to the Panthers.
Rowan just finished his freshman year, where he helped guided the Leopards to a 23-7 overall record, advancing to the PIAA State Semi-finals.
"Committed to the University of Pittsburgh #H2P #HardWorkPaysOff #BallisLife #Pitt," Rowan tweeted.
When asked to confirm his commitment to Panther Digest, Rowan texted, "Thank you! Can I speak to you later? I'm about to work out,"
Clearly, a kid who doesn't like to sit around, striving for a workout after making an early college decision.
Rowan averaged 23 points a game as a freshman.
Stay tuned for more from Rowan on his decision to join the Panthers.
