Here's a Big East football recruiting update featuring oddly enough, three schools that are leaving the Big East. We still don't know when, although it seems unlikely that the Pittsburgh Panthers and Syracuse Orange will join the ACC in 2012. As far as West Virginia joining the Big XII in 2012 goes, we'll believe it when we see it and thus we'll keep talking about the Mountaineers until they are officially gone. The lawsuit battle between the Big East and West Virginia is still ongoing, read about it here.

Staring with West Virginia, the Mountaineers still have CB Da'Quan Davis' commitment, but have lost those of WR Trevor Williams and DT Brett Niederreither. Get caught up on where that leaves the West Virginia Class of 2012 at The Smoking Musket.

Syracuse landed DE Mark Garrick (6-4, 270) on Wednesday. He's the 23rd commit of the Class of 2012 for the Orange. He isn't ranked by Scout or Rivals, but take a look at an Orange perspective at Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician. In addition, three-star DE Josh Manley's commitment is now a soft verbal.

Finally, our Pittsburgh blog Cardiac Hill reviews the defensive commits that new head coach Paul Chryst is working with and also discusses what work he has left to do to shore up the Panthers defense.
