Aliquippa's William Gipson raises the championship trophy with teammates after defeating Derry in the WPIAL Class 3A final Saturday, Nov. 17, 2018, at Heinz Field.

A week after reopening his college football recruitment, Aliquippa’s Will Gipson announced an offer from Pitt.

The senior wide receiver decommitted from Ball State on Nov. 19, two days after starring at Heinz Field in the WPIAL championship. He announced a Pitt offer Monday night on Twitter.

The 6-foot-3, 190-pound wideout had committed to the Mid-American school in June with teammate Solvauhn Moreland before announcing last week on Twitter that his “recruitment is 100% back open.”

Gipson drew increase interest this fall from Power 5 teams and received a Rutgers offer Oct. 15. He attended Pitt’s home game Oct. 27 and posted a photo with Panthers coach Pat Narduzzi.

Gipson caught seven passes for 165 yards and three touchdowns Saturday as Aliquippa defeated Derry, 42-19, in the WPIAL Class 3A final. He leads the Quips with 53 catches for 1,494 yards and 18 touchdowns.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
