Pitt 2021 All 105: TE Gavin Bartholomew



All 105 is a Pittsburgh Sports Now series profiling each of the 105 members of Pitt’s 2021 training camp roster.

86 • Gavin Bartholomew, freshman tight end

Last year: Bartholomew played all over the gridiron as a senior, spending time as a quarterback, tight end, defensive end and punter. He enrolled early and joined the team in January.

Stats: As a tight end, Bartholomew recorded six catches for 131 yards and two touchdowns his senior year, adding 145 yards and three scores on the ground as a dual-threat QB.

Camp outlook: Tight ends coach Tim Salem played a big role in Bartholomew’s commitment to Pitt, helping to convince him to flip from Buffalo. Tight end has been a position of need for the Panthers for years, but there’s a substantial depth chart ahead of him.

Projected role: Lucas Krull is the entrenched starter at tight end after a phenomenal spring, but Bartholomew’s athleticism could help him filch some snaps: he often split out wide as a receiver in high school. Bartholomew stands 6-foot-4 and 260 pounds, possessing the rare combination of side and speed that is crucial to the position.

Accolades, highlights: ESPN ranked Bartholomew as the No. 36 prospect in Pennsylvania for his graduating class.
