Why Is Charles Reeves No Longer With Pitt?



Since his dismissal from the Pitt football team last week, people have wondered and speculated about exactly what happened with former Panthers tight end Charles Reeves.

The explanation given in the press release just stated that Reeves was no longer a member of the team because of “disciplinary reasons.”

When no specific reason is given, it’s natural then for people to speculate which in the end isn’t fair to either the player or the football program.

Pittsburgh Sports Now has learned the reason for the departure of the four-star tight end from Ohio.

Multiple sources tell PSN that Reeves recently returned home to Steubenville, Ohio and never returned to campus. According to one source, this is something that Reeves has been contemplating for a while and finally acted on it.

Members of the Pitt staff attempted multiple times to reach him to get an explanation for his whereabouts and weren’t successful in talking to him.

There comes a point where a program needs to make a decision to move on and that’s what Pat Narduzzi decided to do. Narduzzi went out of his way when speaking with reporters, including our Alan Saunders, at ACC Kickoff on Wednesday to call Reeves a “good kid.“

Reeves did not respond to a request for comment or whether he plans on returning to college football this season with another program.
