Pitt Junior DT Noah Palmer Walks on Senior Day; 21 of 23 Seniors Participate



PITTSBURGH — Pitt defensive lineman Noah Palmer took part in the Panthers’ senior day festivities on Saturday, a strong sign that he will likely not return to Pitt for the 2022 season.
Palmer is a redshirt junior and has two seasons of eligibility remaining, thanks to the COVID-19 waiver all players received for the 2020 season.

A 6-foot-3, 270-pound lineman, Palmer has worked at both end and tackle in his time with Pitt. He played in two games in 2020, made two tackles and returned a fumble. He played against New Hampshire this season, but did not record any statistics.

Of the team’s 23 seniors, the only two that did not participate in the ceremony were center Owen Drexel and running back Todd Sibley Jr., seemingly cementing their status as returners.

The other nine seniors that have eligibility remaining will have time to determine their fate for 2022, which head coach Pat Narduzzi encouraged. Pitt remains projected to be six scholarships over the 2022 limit, even with Palmer moving on.

Dennis’s targeting ejection shows a lack of discipline which has existed in the Pitt defensive team all year. Players are looking for the “big hit” and don’t realize the impact their ejection has on the “big picture”. When will they ever learn????

Really? Before yesterday, how many Pitt players were ejected for targeting this year?
