At the conclusion of spring practice, players find out where they currently stand on the depth chart and it’s not unusual to have transfers occur.
That’s what happened Saturday morning with the Pitt Panthers.
Redshirt senior Kaymar Mimes has made the decision to enter into the NCAA Transfer Portal.
The 6’5”, 235-pound tight end from Long Branch, New Jersey was a 3-star recruit in Pitt’s Class of 2018. Before signing with Pitt, Mimes received offers from Boston College, UConn, Old Dominion, Rutgers, Temple and Wake Forest.
Mimes arrived at Pitt as a tight end/defensive end and played at both positions with the Panthers. In the last two seasons, Mimes played in 23 games, mostly on special teams.
Following this news, Pitt’s current scholarship board currently sits at 83, two under the limit.
Following spring practice, Pitt’s current tight end depth chart looks like Gavin Bartholomew, Jake Renda, Kyi Wright and Cole Mitchell. It would not be surprising if Pitt adds a transfer tight end before fall camp begins.
