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.
