Panthers add Baltimore wing

Through his years at the helm of the Pittsburgh program, Jamie Dixon has identified a formula for success. He and his staff have made a regular habit of finding underrated kids and some of their top players have hailed from Baltimore. Add underrated wing Durand Johnson to that list.
A native of Baltimore who will prep this season at Wolfeboro (N.H.) Brewster Prep, the 6-foot-6 wing confirmed via text Monday night that he's going to be a Pitt Panther.
"What's up? I'm committed to Pitt, I just did it," Johnson texted Rivals.com.

Playing his summer and spring ball for Cecil Kirk, Johnson developed a reputation as a wing who is equally comfortable slashing or playing out on the perimeter and hitting jumpers.
With his commitment, Johnson joins fellow Rivals150 memnbers in power forward Jaylen Bond and guard John Johnson to make up the Panthers 2011 recruiting class.
