Pitt Lands Former USC Quarterback Kedon Slovis



With Kenny Pickett leaving for the NFL and a group of inexperienced quarterbacks left on the roster, Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi and the staff turned to the transfer portal and landed their guy.

Former USC and All-Pac 12 quarterback Kedon Slovis signed with Pitt Tuesday afternoon, Narduzzi announced through a Twitter post (which was also confirmed by through Slovis’s Instagram).

“I was so excited when Coach Narduzzi called, because I knew that Pitt and this program were the right fit for me to keep developing into the leader I can be,” Slovis said in his statement. “I’m ready to win now — and talking to the players who are returning, and seeing how hungry they are for this season, that got me pumped. They have a lot of talented players coming back. And, man … getting to throw the ball to the guy who just won the Biletnikoff?? That’s something you don’t pass up. The culture and indentity that Coach Narduzzi has created is everything I want to be a part of.”

Slovis, who was the first team All-Pac 12 quarterback selection as a sophomore last season, played 27 games with USC — throwing for 7,567 yards and 58 touchdowns. As a freshman in 2019, he threw for 3,502 yards and 30 touchdowns, and he threw for 1,921 yards and 17 touchdowns in a Covid-shortened 2020 season.

A 6-foot-3, 210-pound signal-caller, Slovis is a battle-tested, Power Five quarterback who has experienced massive success during his tenure as a college quarterback. He will be eligible immediately and retain two seasons of college eligibility.

Stay tuned with PSN for in-depth coverage of Slovis and his potential as a Pitt quarterback.

Great get by Pitt. Interested to see how many of the QB’s transfer (hopefully we keep Yarnell as I think he could have a bright future). Either way, Narduzzi had to do something to keep up with the Jones. If not, he runs the risk of players transferring out to play with better QBs. Unfortunately, this is the world we live in now.
