Charlie Partridge’s unit will be losing two valuable members with ends Patrick Jones II and Rashad Weaver graduating and taking their skills to the NFL next season.
It appears as though the Panthers are getting good news with the return of a talented senior.
Although he or the team hasn’t officially announced this, it looks as though defensive tackle Keyshon Camp will return to help anchor the Panthers defensive line. Here is a tweet from Camp on Sunday night.

The return of Camp gives the Panthers defense real strength and depth at defensive tackle with Camp, Tyler Bentley, Devin Danielson, David Green, Deandre Jules, Calijah Kancey, Bryce Nelms along with incoming freshman Elliot Donald and Dorien Ford.
Camp’s talent has never been questioned, for him it’s been a question of staying healthy in order to produce. If the former four-star recruit is able to show NFL teams a full season of tape at a similar level that he’s shown in smaller sample sizes, he will no doubt get noticed and give himself a chance to get drafted and play at the next level.
During his time at Pitt, Camp has suffered season-ending injuries to a knee and also suffered an upper body injury this season.
Camp was a member of Pat Narduzzi’s first recruiting class in 2016 and after originally committing to USC and selected Pitt over other offers from Alabama, Florida, Miami, Michigan, Ohio State and Texas.
