Pitt DL JoJo Belgrave Enters the NCAA Transfer Portal



With Pitt’s vast wealth of defensive line depth, inside and outside, it was going to lead to some of Pitt’s linemen looking for opportunities elsewhere.

Emmanuel “JoJo” Belgrave, a redshirt sophomore defensive lineman from Miami Southridge Senior in Miami, Florida, officially entered the transfer portal Tuesday afternoon.

“I want to say I appreciate the University of Pittsburgh Coaching Staff for giving me a opportunity to play football and getting my education,” Belgrave said on Twitter. “Also to my life skills family at Pitt I want to truly thank you’ll for everything since the I walked through those Pitt doors. To my brothers that I made during the time at Pitt I want thank you’ll for those talks off the field, moments at the game, and moments grinding in the off-season with the strength staff. Pittsburgh will forever be my home and I’m thankful.

“With that being said I’m entering the transfer portal and my recruitment is now open with 4 more years of eligibility.”

After arriving as a three-star recruit, the 1,272nd-ranked recruit in the class of 2020 (64th-ranked weakside defensive end and 169th-ranked recruit from Florida), he was not able to see the field during his two seasons in Pittsburgh.

With four seasons of eligibility, coming from a Power Five program, Belgrave (6-foot-3, 255 pounds) should be an attractive option for a program at a lower level.

With Belgrave officially exiting, along with tight end Kaymar Mimes two weeks ago, Pitt now has 83 scholarship players ahead of the 2022 season — two below the maximum limit.
