Pitt Lands Highly Coveted Akron Transfer Wide Receiver Konata Mumpfield



The Pitt offense for the next few seasons just got better as they land a top player in the transfer portal.

Akron transfer wide receiver Konata Mumpfield announced on Sunday that he would be signing with Pitt.

The freshman wide out has turned into one of the most sought-after players in the transfer portal. Since announcing he’s leaving Akron, the freshman All-American wideout has earned offers from Pitt, USC, LSU, Kentucky, Mississippi State, Houston, Ole Miss, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Louisville, Vanderbilt, Central Florida, Minnesota and Utah.

This past season at Akron as a true freshman, Mumpfield was named a freshman All-American as he collected 63 catches for 751 yards and 8 touchdowns.

The 6’1″, 178-pound receiver is from Hoschton, Georgia and was recruited by Archie Collins and Pitt last year but never received a scholarship from them. In fact, Akron was his only D-1 scholarship offer when committing to them last season.

A couple of other things regarding Mumpfield, he did make an official visit to Pitt earlier this month, along with trips to Louisville and Vanderbilt. Also, he was in attendance to watch Pitt for the Peach Bowl.

With the addition of Mumpfield, Pitt’s wide receiver room will once again be loaded with the return of Jordan Addison, Jared Wayne, Jayon Braden, Myles Alston, Jaden Bradley and incoming freshman Addison Copeland and Che Nwabuko.

We’ll have more on Mumpfield later this afternoon as we talk with him about deciding on Pitt.

Excellent pickup.

A bit concerned having some new pieces with the tough non conference schedule this year, as Tennessee should be better than last year and WVU will be a tough opener. But if we get past those games healthy and with some chemistry, there is a strong chance we could see ourselves in the ACC companionship again, potentially as favorites.

I agree some Jordan as chemistry is important but with graduation and now the portal, revolving door with college athletes is the new normal, I don’t care for it neither but we’re all going to have to get used to it

WVU is getting wiped out. They lost their QB, Top RB and WR. Tennessee will be improved, but Pitt has the chance to be better, too.

Good combo with Addison. Would also like to see another somewhat bulkier running back for a stronger running game.
