Camp outlook: Defensive tackle is one of Pitt’s deeper positions, with four returning players with experience from 2018. Stout at the point of attack, Kancey could project to contribute as an interior lineman on special teams units if he can get a helmet on game days.
Projected role: Will have to earn his way to a four-game stint, and will probably maintain his redshirt status, but could have in impact in the games he plays.
