Toney, who was a junior at Trinity Christian School this year, said he plans to reclassify and join Pitt’s Class of 2018 that already includes guards Trey McGowens and Xavier Johnson, who have signed letters of intent. Also, former New Mexico State guard Sidy N’Dir has said he will enroll this year as a graduate transfer.
Toney, 6-foot-6, 190 pounds, is a three-star prospect, according to Rivals.com that ranks him the 135th player overall in the nation. He averaged 14.1 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.9 assists last season at Trinity Christian.
