Former Pitt Wing Ithiel Horton Transfers to UCF

Published

on

On Friday, former Pitt wing Ithiel Horton announced that he had committed to University of Central Florida after spending weeks in the transfer portal.

Horton played two seasons for Pitt after playing one at Delaware and sitting out his first season with the Panthers due to transfer rules. He played limited minutes this season after being suspended due to off-the-court legal troubles stemming from an incident on the South Side of Pittsburgh.

After he was reinstated, he played in 13 games and scored ten or more points in six of them. His best performance of the season came against Florida State, as he hit eight of his 16 shots, including seven three-point attempts, to lead Pitt with 25 points. Horton is a career 39% three-point shooter.

Horton now joins the Knights for his last season of college eligibility.

He did help us greatly win the only signature win of 2021-22 season. And most unlikely.

AAC lower middle of the pack team. Will be watching closely as he gets torched on D by Houston, Memphis, UConn etc. just like he did here. We will see if Hortons Dad criticizes Dawkins like he did Capel. From one Mike Krzyzewski ex assistant to another. I am hopeful he can stay sober and away from being incarcerated.

Orlando has some decent nightlife…plus it’s warm….so lots of outdoor street bars.
Horton will enjoy it. Plus the cops don’t have him on the punk list.

Pitt has NEVER had a basketball coach in the history of the program (since 1905) that has had 4 Losing Seasons in a row to start his tenure. Only 1 other Coach EVER to have 4 Losing Seasons in a row period. He got fired.

The last line is ..well…..I will leave it to you. lol

“I will be committing and taking my talents to UCF because of the stability & culture of that program,” the 6-foot-3 Vauxhall, N.J. native and former St. Anthony’s and Roselle Catholic guard told ZAGSBLOG ahead of his public announcement. “I also see myself developing and learning the game of basketball along with becoming a better man. And I cannot wait [to play] for Coach [Johnny] Dawkins and his staff.”He added: “I will be bringing my shooting ability, overall IQ, tenacity, leadership and will to get better.”

Enough about this loser that assaulted a cop and used nasty misogynistic words towards a female cop. Capel seems just fine with it, but I’m not.

Good riddance.

Why ? he bailed on Pitt…when Pitt stood behind him…after assaulting a cop, which true or not….tarnished the University.
