Could former Duke assistant Jeff Capel pull off an impressive late recruiting coup?

Well, possibly.

Aundre Hyatt, a 4-star 6-6 junior out of Charlottesville, says he’s leaning towards reclassifying to 2018 - and Pitt is a possibility. He’s going to take an official visit.

There’s a small catch: he’s getting over a knee injury and could redshirt next year.

Even so, it would be a major talent boost for Capel’s nascent program and he’d have him in 2019, healthy and ready to go.
