Pitt All 105: RB Mychale Salahuddin

Published

on

All 105 is a Pittsburgh Sports Now series profiling each of the 105 members of Pitt’s 2019 training camp roster.

7 • Mychale Salahuddin, redshirt freshman running back

Last year: Played in three games as a true freshman before suffering a season-ending injury that required offseason surgery.

Stats: Finished with four carries for 37 yards. Also returned two kickoffs.

Accolades, Highlights: 

Camp outlook: The running back job is wide open as the Panthers enter camp, and Salahuddin, a four-star prospect out of Washington, D.C., has as good of a chance of landing the job as anyone. As usual with young running backs, his abilities in pass protection will be key.

Projected role: Salahuddin could be a home-run hitter with his speed and vision, but bigger backs Todd Sibley, Jr. and A.J. Davis project better as early-down pounders. In Mark Whipple’s new offense, expect Salahuddin and fellow speedster V’Lique Carter to work out of spread looks to maximize their abilities.
