Pitt WR Cameron O’Neil Enters Transfer Portal

Pitt WR Cameron O’Neil Enters Transfer Portal

Wide receiver Cameron O’Neil has entered the NCAA transfer portal and intends to transfer from Pitt, Pittsburgh Sports Now has confirmed. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette first reported the news.

O’Neil, a 6-foot-1 redshirt freshman from Phenix City, Alabama, redshirted as a true freshman in 2018 and did not participate in any game in the 2019 season.

A consensus three-star prospect out of high school, O’Neil chose Pitt over Power Five offers from Illinois, Virginia and Wisconsin, but was never able to find traction in a crowded depth chart at wide receiver.

In 2019, he was passed over for playing time by true freshman Jared Wayne. O’Neil is the fourth Pitt player to leave the program with eligibility remaining since the start of the 2019 season, joining linebacker Elias Reynolds, guard Brandon Ford and defensive back Therran Coleman.

Pitt has four wide receivers signed in the Class of 2020, with Jaylon Barden and Jordan Addison joined by Aydin Henningham and Solomon DeShields, who head coach Pat Narduzzi said may also play on defense.

With the departure of O’Neil and the addition of quarterback Joey Yellen on Monday, Pitt sits exactly at the 85-scholarship limit.

I still don’t get Therrian Coleman not playing. He didn’t get a fair shot in my opinion. Way better than J Stocker, and Hallett.

He didn’t. He’s graduating and not coming back for a 5th year.

I could see even more WR’s transferring because Pitt has recruited way to many receivers over the past two years. What about the kid from Aliquippa Will Gibson? We didn’t see him either. Did he redshirt? Will he be the next to transfer?

No, he redshirted this year.

The numbers tell the tale. 14 graduating or out of eligibility, 3 entered the transfer portal earlier, 18 recruits (including the QB from Arizona State).

Bingo #18.

Wouldn’t be surprised if another couple of scholarships come open before February.
