PITTSBURGH — Pitt football has dismissed tight end Charles Reeves from the program for disciplinary reasons, head coach Pat Narduzzi announced on Friday.
The nature of the cause for Reeves’ discipline was not revealed by Narduzzi or the university.
Reeves, a 6-foot-5, 284-pound tight end from Steubenville, Ohio, had just finished his first year with the Pitt program. He redshirted as a true freshman in 2017.
Reeves was rated as a four-star recruit by 247 Sports coming out of high school and was seen as a potential impact player at either tight end, or potentially on the offensive line, where he worked out at times during Pitt’s 2018 spring practices.
The departure of Reeves leaves just sophomore Tyler Sear, redshirt freshman Grant Carrigan and graduate transfer Will Gragg as tight ends for the 2018 season.
The position had already been depleted by the departure of 2017 starters Matt Flanagan to graduation and Chris Clark, who stepped away from the team due to personal reasons.
With the departure, the Panthers currently stand at 84 scholarships for 2018, one under the maximum.
