Pitt Officially Signs Graduate Transfer OT Keldrick Wilson

Pitt Officially Signs Graduate Transfer OT Keldrick Wilson

Pitt has officially signed graduate transfer Keldrick Wilson for the 2020 season, head coach Pat Narduzzi announced on Tuesday.

Wilson, a 6-foot-5, 300-pound offensive tackle from Mount Ulla, North Carolina, will join the Panthers after spending his first four collegiate seasons at FCS-level Hampton University.

He committed to Pitt on Saturday after narrowing his list of schools to include Indiana, Pitt, USC and West Virginia.

“Keldrick was a prospect we focused on from the moment he entered the portal,” Narduzzi said in a press release. “He is a big and athletic lineman who we expect to immediately compete at offensive tackle. Keldrick has a great personality and is so likable. He will fit in with our team right away and that’s so important for transfers. Our staff can’t wait to coach him.”

Wilson was a two-year starter for the Pirates and should immediately join the competition to replace graduated starting right tackle Nolan Ulizio with Pitt this fall.

”They’re not bringing me in to sit the bench or anything, they’re bringing me in to play right away,” Wilson said to Pittsburgh Sports Now. “Which position is yet to be determined but I can play either left or right tackle.”

Wilson’s signing marks the fourth straight season Pitt has added a graduate transfer to the offensive line, joining Brandon Hodges (Texas, 2017), Stefano Millin (Kent State, 2018) and Ulizio (Michigan, 2019).

Wilson is the first scholarship graduate transfer to Pitt from the FCS level since the rule was implemented in 2013 to allow players that have already graduated from their previous institution the ability to transfer without penalty.

With the addition of Wilson, Pitt now sits at the 85-man scholarship limit for 2020.
