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.
