Pittsburgh Sports Now has learned that the Pitt coaching staff contacted and spoke with Devonshire on Tuesday, the first day Devonshire officially entered the NCAA transfer portal and was permitted to speak with coaches.
Devonshire and his father spoke on the phone with head coach Pat Narduzzi and secondary coach Archie Collins. PSN has been told the conversation went well, as the Pitt staff explained to Devonshire how they intended to use him in their system.
Pitt wasn’t the only program to contact the talented cornerback as he also received a call from Terry Smith and James Franklin from Penn State. Before the end of the evening, Devonshire is also expected to talk with West Virginia coaches
Expressing interest early is important because Devonshire is expected to make his decision before the end of the month. He plans on enrolling at his new school and start getting acclimated with the off-season conditioning program with his new team.
Devonshire will have four years of athletic eligibility remaining.
