Former Pitt LB Wendell Davis Lands With Northwestern



Pitt linebacker Wendell Davis entered the transfer portal in November, announcing his decision to exit the program after graduating this winter and seek a fresh start elsewhere.

He committed to Northwestern Monday afternoon, he announced via Twitter, and he’ll once again look for playing time with a Power Five school.

Davis, a 6-foot-2, 240-pound redshirt junior inside linebacker, originally committed to Pitt out of Benedictine College Prep in Richmond, Virginia. He redshirted as a freshman in 2018 and played in 24 games over the past three seasons.

In 2021, Davis started a handful of games, racking up 28 tackles (7 solo), 3.5 tackles for loss and a sack, but his playing time diminished as the season wore on. He finished his Pitt career with 45 tackles (13 solo), five tackles for loss, two sacks and a special teams touchdown.

Pitt’s linebacking corps will have a bit of retooling to accomplish over the offseason, but a solid chunk of contributors, including SirVocea Dennis, is already in place.

Stop writing about quitters. Once they enter the portal, they are no longer Pitt men.

There was a time when athletics was everything that is right with the world. Now it’s everything that is wrong in the world. Miss a tackle against Miami, get benched, enters the transfer portal next week. I don’t blame the kid, it’s the easier and softer way these kids are allowed to take nowadays.
