After taking his official visit to Pitt this past weekend, Zach Poker wasted little time making his decision.

Paul Chryst made a stop at Oconomowac High School on Wednesday. Just three days after getting his offer from Pittsburgh, Zach Poker was able to inform Chryst in person, that he was coming to Pittsburgh.

Poker, 6-4. 220, finished his senior season with 776 yards receiving and eight touchdown catches. He also rushed for another 120. Poker, along with Madison Memorial (WI) receiver Jester Weah were in town over the weekend. Weah also picked up an offer Tuesday, after a visit with Chryst. He will make his decision Friday.

With Poker's commitment, Pitt now has 26 commits, tied with Michigan, Florida and Arizona for the third-highest number of 2013 commits. Only Texas A&M (32) and Georgia (29) have more.

For the moment, Pitt's 2013 recruiting class ranks third in the ACC, behind Florida State and North Carolina. If they were staying in the Big East, they would have the top class in their current conference.

Stay tuned for more on Poker's commitment to Pitt.
