Former Pitt Linebacker Cam Bright Commits To Washington

Published

on

Former Pitt linebacker Cam Bright has decided to play his final season of college football across the country.

Following an official visit this past weekend, Bright announced on Monday afternoon his intentions to sign with the Washington Huskies of the Pac-12.

Back on January 3, Bright surprisingly announced his decision to transfer from the program. For his career at Pitt, Bright collected 186 total tackles, 25 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks and 4 pass breakups.

 

 

Bright, a 2021 team captain, became the fourth linebacker to transfer from Pitt since the start of the 2021 season, joining Wendall Davis, A.J. Roberts and Leslie Smith. While Roberts and Smith didn’t come as a surprise, Bright and Davis were somewhat unexpected.

Bright will become of new Washington head coach Kalen DeBoer’s first team and will no doubt be counted on for his leadership. DeBoer comes to Washington after a short but successful stint at Fresno State.

It makes absolute no sense. He is going to be missed big time. The linebackers are going to be the weekends of this team and it could really ruin a good team.
I think the team needs a new linebackers coach because that’s the one position that under performs and guys transfer out. It seems like we have underachieved with our linebackers and it doesn’t look to be getting any better.

The only thing that makes ABSOLUTELY no sense, is everything you said. We just hired a new LB coach last year and the group did very well. The only significant loss, and I use the term significant lightly, was Bright. Simon coming from ND will help fill that void. We have plenty of young talent. Next man up.

If your in Bright’s shoes, going to UDub and having to prove himself again makes sense because that’s what life in the NFL will be like. In all likelihood, he’ll end up starting and possibly making the on-field defensive adjustments.

Besides, he already has a college degree, so why not experience a different part of the country (though Seattle is socialist) for a year?

I’d love to know the real reason as to why CB left Pitt when he would have been the leader of the linebacking core. The continuity and familiarity would give him a better chance at being selected in the NFL draft. Pitt could sure also have used Wendell Davis. He was looking like he had a higher ceiling.

Is Bright’s decision to transfer more enlightened now?

Bright was a good player at Pitt and needs a change of scenery. At least he didn’t transfer to WVU.
