Four-star LB stays in Western Pa.

Four-star outside linebacker Deaysean Rippy (McKees Rocks, Pa./Sto-Rox) committed to nearby Pittsburgh in a ceremony at his high school Wednesday morning, and Pitt confirmed his letter of intent was received.

Rippy was down to Pitt and West Virginia after dropping Arizona on Sunday and losing his scholarship to Colorado.

Rippy was previously committed to Florida but things did not work out and he lost his scholarship to the Gators during the summer.

Ranked No. 34 at his position and No. 12 in the state, Rippy is the Panthers' top defensive commit.
