Se’Von Pittman lands at Akron after leaving Ohio State

Se’Von Pittman

Three months after “parting ways” with Ohio State, Se’Von Pittman has decided to continue his playing career at another FBS program in his home state.

Canton (Ohio) McKinley High School official Charles Quincy has confirmed to the Canton Repository that the defensive end has decided to transfer to Akron and play football for the Zips.  While Akron has yet to officially confirm the addition of Pittman to the roster, Bill Greene of reports that “everything is approved and done.”

“It’s a good fit for him,” Quincy told the Repository. “Here’s a young man, a Division I player, and I’m glad he gets the opportunity to go play Division I again. That’s a good feeling.”

Originally a Michigan State verbal commitment, Pittman became a four-star member of Urban Meyer‘s first OSU recruiting class after flipping to the Buckeyes.  Pittman, who took a redshirt for his true freshman season was rated by as the No. 8 weakside end in the Class of 2012 and the No. 3 player at any position in the state of Ohio.

After sitting out the 2013 season, Pittman will have three years of eligibility remaining beginning in 2014.

    Good luck Se’Von! For whatever reason you didn’t work out in Columbus but the Buckeye Nation wishes you well!

    It didn’t work out at tOSU because he was never going to see the field and he knew it. Should have transferred up north and played for that elephant in blue.

    He didn’t work out because Urban Liar came in selling lies and flipping every BT commit he could. Remember his classic quote “We don’t redshirt, if you redshirt you’re not good enough to be here”. Well, true to SEC ways, Urban found a way to get him out and keep the pipelines freshly stocked with new talent he sold lies too. I’m not butt hurt, it’s the sad truth. And if you Buckeye fans can’t admit the slimy ways Urban Meyer came in with, you’re lying to yourselves. He may have damaged this kids future. Would love to hear Pittman’s true feelings off tape.
