On Thursday, Pitt expanded its list of potential transfer targets by reaching out to Hampton transfer Davion Warren, according to Jake Weingarten.
Warren is a 6-foot-6 guard who played two seasons for Hampton, averaging 14.9 points and 6.2 rebounds per game across his career there. In his most recent season, he lit up the stat sheet and had a career year, averaging 21.2 points, 6.3 rebounds, and three rebounds per game over 25 games. This season, he scored 30+ points three separate times, including a 34-point performance against USC Upstate in which he knocked down 13 of his 20 shots.
After entering the portal, Warren committed to Memphis and signed with the program on April 15. However, on April 26, Warren de-committed from Penny Hardaway’s program and re-entered the portal. According to Weingarten, he is also hearing from St. Johns, Texas Tech, Arizona State, Georgia, and more.

Warren has excelled in junior college at Olney Central College, in the Big South conference at Hampton, and is now looking to perform at a high-major level. He is an elite scorer and has great size for a guard at 6-foot-6 while also being able to handle the ball with confidence. This season, he finished second in Big South Player of the Year voting, after receiving seven first-place votes. While there is no known commitment date set for Warren as of now, his recruitment will certainly be one to keep an eye on due to his elite scoring ability and track record at multiple levels of college ball.
