On Thursday, former Pitt forward Au’Diese Toney found a new home after entering his name into the transfer portal more than a month ago.
Toney will be taking his talents to Arkansas to play for head coach Eric Musselman, who just led the Razorbacks to an Elite Eight run in this year’s NCAA Tournament. In recent years, Musselman has become one of the most successful coaches in the country at landing talented transfers and building his team around them, and he has once again struck gold with the commitment of Toney.

The 6-foot-6 Toney played three years at Pitt under Jeff Capel, increasing his minutes average and points averages every season. This year, he averaged 14.4 points and 5.9 rebounds per game for the Panthers while averaging the most minutes per game on the team, 34.9.
Although an injury caused him to miss the last few weeks of Pitt’s season, Toney decided to leave the program with multiple games remaining on the schedule. He finished his Pitt career with 763 points and 423 rebounds in 79 games played.
