We’re less than a month from fall camp starting but it appears that the roster is still in a bit of a state of flux at Pitt.
On Friday afternoon, The Tribune-Review reported that Panthers head coach Pat Narduzzi had dismissed sophomore tight end Charles Reeves Jr. from the team in what was attributed to disciplinary reasons.
Reeves redshirted last season but was considered a bit of a recruiting coup for the program coming out of high school in 2017 when he signed with Pitt as a four-star from Ohio. He was expected to crack the rotation in 2018 but those plans are now out the window.
While depth at the tight end position will be hampered a bit by the departure, the team did add Arkansas transfer Will Gragg this offseason and also return several underclassmen who will be counted on to play a little more. Reeves’ dismissal comes a few months after the program lost another tight end in former UCLA transfer Chris Clark.
Pitt opens the season against Albany at home before taking on in-state rival Penn State in Week 2.
