Pitt Loses DT Keyshon Camp For 2019 Season

Pitt Loses DT Keyshon Camp For 2019 Season

For the second time this year, Pitt has lost a defensive lineman for the season.

Pitt announced this afternoon that junior defensive tackle Keyshon Camp would miss the remainder of the 2019 season with a knee injury.

”We are really heartbroken for Keyshon,” said Pat Narduzzi. “He put a tremendous amount of work in during the off-season and was outstanding against Virginia before he got hurt. Keyshon is a strong young man, though, and I know he won’t let this adversity sidetrack him.”

Camp left the game on Saturday against Virginia midway through the third quarter and didn’t return. Prior to the injury, Camp was very effective, consistently getting pressure on Virginia quarterback Bryce Perkins.

The injury bug has unfortunately been the story of Camp’s career at Pitt. Last season, Camp was hampered by a shoulder injury and only played six games, recording 14 tackles and two sacks.

Once again, it’ll be next man up for Pat Narduzzi’s team. Amir Watts and Jaylen Twyman will be Pitt’s starters with redshirt freshman Devin Danielson, David Green and former 4-star recruit Tyler Bentley getting action with the second defensive tackle grouping.

Sad News two years in a row for a great player. He was very active Saturday. didn’t realize he was out after 3rd quarter but that makes sense. Probably contributed to the 4th qtr score for Virginia. Hope and prayers for the kid

That really sucks. Two promising and talented defensive linemen out for the season in Weaver and now Camp. Looks like that depth will be needed now more than ever and thankfully there is some depth on the D-line these days that hadn’t been there in previous years. I hope we don’t suffer anymore season ending injuries. We’ve had enough for one year in that department.

In what alternative universe was Tyler freaking Bentley a former 4-star player??? Kid wasn’t even ranked in the top 1000 in 247 composite. That DT depth is woof!

Devin Danielson is a quality player that will fill in nicely. Nothing against Camp because he’s a quality player that will again miss playing time due to injury but Danielson will become the better player of the two. Green and Bentley will be competent as well. I’m not worried at all even though nobody wanted to lose Camp for the season. We’ll be just fine as long as no other serious injuries are sustained among the remaining group.

People are putting way to much emphasis on star ratings. Guys overachieve and underachieve all the time. A lot of good schools were after Bentley as Mike said. That entire group has talent. The pessimists and the doubters of this group will see that they’re wrong about them.

Vuke where are you getting these rankings from, I keep reading about some of these kids that you say are 4 star and when I check they maybe high 3’s or very low ranked nationally somewhere in the top 500.
