Pitt nabs Orlando DB Julius James

Senior cornerback Julius James (Orlando/Evans) pledged over the weekend to sign with the Panthers, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

"I'm 100 percent committed. I like Pitt a lot," Julius said. "The coaches are great and they seem like a real family-oriented coaching staff."

He chose Pittsburgh over scholarship offers from Boise State, Boston College, Bowling Green, Cincinnati, Florida International, Florida Atlantic, Iowa State, Memphis and South Alabama.

The 5-foot-11, 175-pound prospect is currently ungraded by ESPN but will receive an evaluation soon.

He is commitment No. 21 for the Panthers.
