More national accolades for perhaps the fastest rising prospect in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Pitt senior quarterback Kenny Pickett has been named a first-team midseason All-American by The Athletic and CBS Sports.
Through Pitt’s first six games, the Heisman trophy candidate has passed for 1,934 yards, 21 touchdowns, 1 interception and has a completion percentage of 70%, which is impressive considering he’s attempted 205 passes. Under the direction of Pickett, Pitt currently has the third highest scoring offense in college football, as the No. 23 ranked Panthers are averaging 48.3 points per game.
Pickett’s incredible senior season has ranked in the top five in five different quarterback categories: Passing Efficiency (181.1/3rd), Points Responsible per Game (24.0/3rd), Total Points Responsible For (144/4th), Passing Touchdown (21/4th) and Total Offense (352.3 yards per game/5th).
Pickett will have his chance to improve his national profile this Saturday as Pitt (5-1) hosts Clemson (4-2). Kickoff from Heinz Field is set for 3:30 PM on ESPN.
