Transferring has become common in college athletics and for the 4th time in the last year, a player has decided to leave the Pitt women’s program.
Sophomore guard Jahsyni Knight announced on her Instagram account that she’d be entering the transfer portal. Knight will have two years of eligibility left following her move to a new program.
Knight started 7 games in 2019-20 for Lance White and averaged 14.1 minutes per game. In 57 career games with Pitt, Knight averaged 1.8 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 13.5 minutes per game.
As the season progressed, Knight’s playing time reduced and she couldn’t find a role in the Panthers rotation. With the entire starting lineup returning, plus the addition of transfers Marquette’s Destiny Strother and New Mexico’s Jayla Everett playing time could have been an issue again this coming season.
Knight arrived at Pitt as a four-star recruit from New Jersey and ranked as the 96th best player in the Class of 2018. Knight committed to Pitt under former head coach Suzie McConnell-Serio.
Knight joins Kyla Nelson (Florida International), Alayna Gribble (Saint Joseph’s) and Jasmine Whitney (George Washington) as players that have left Pitt in the last year.
