Pitt announced on Monday after that sophomore guard Khameron Davis will transfer from the program, as was first reported by Corey Evans of Rivals.com.
Considering that Jeff Capel is looking to add more scholarships for this year’s recruiting class, the news doesn’t come as much of a surprise.
However, at the conclusion of this season, Davis did tell Mike Vukovcan of Pittsburgh Sports Now that he planned on returning to Pitt and was looking forward to improving himself this off-season.
Something obviously changed and Davis will be playing elsewhere in 2019-20. In the end, Davis likely realized that his chances of meaningful playing time were slim so he decided to move on from Pitt.
“We wish Kham the best of luck as he looks to continue his playing career and educational pursuits elsewhere,” Jeff Capel said in a press release.
Davis, who will have two years of eligibility remaining, averaged 2.5 points and 2.2 rebounds in 26 games last season. He will have to sit out a season if he transfers to another Division I school, unless he is able to get a waiver from the NCAA>
Capel now has three available scholarships to use for his Class of 2019 and that could increase if any other players decide to leave.
