Early Monday afternoon, Pitt announced that sophomore guard Kham Davis was transferring from the university.
Davis was recruited to Pitt by former head coach Kevin Stallings and decided to remain with the program after the hiring of Jeff Capel.
However, after playing sparingly this past season, Davis has decided to move on.
Monday night, Pittsburgh Sports Now spoke with an emotional Davis who admitted this was a very difficult decision.
“This was very hard,” Davis told PSN. “I came here and expected to be here for four years and I even told you a couple weeks ago, I really had no plans on leaving. I loved it here, the people, the fans, I like a lot of things here and had no plans on going.
”But after looking at the overall big picture, it was evident that my opportunity, my growth and a lot of things, it was probably better elsewhere really but I didn’t really want to leave.”
If you think this was an easy conversation for Capel to have you’re wrong.
“It was difficult for both of us but in the end he agreed with the decision and that it would be better for me to go somewhere else,” Davis said. “It was a hard conversation but he’s someone that knows what he’s doing and there’s no hard feelings on my part.”
Despite it ending not as he pictured it, Davis says he doesn’t regret his decision to come to Pitt and wouldn’t change a thing.
“I want to make this clear, I have no regrets,” he said. “I’m so thankful I came here. I’m thankful for the fans, for the people that supported and helped me. I’m thankful for my teammates because we’ve had a lot of changes the last two years. I have no regrets and think this will be a big and important moment in my life.”
