Pitt FB Recruiting

Pitt Gets Commitment From JUCO TE/Former TCU DT Karter Johnson

Published

on

The Pitt Panthers received a commitment on Friday from a very interesting prospect.

Tight end Karter Johnson, from Butler Community College in Kansas, announced his commitment Pitt. Earlier this morning, Johnson de-committed from Coastal Carolina.

The 6’3″, 230-pound athlete will immediately compete for playing time at tight end and depending on how things go in camp, could fill the role of Lucas Krull and turn into a one-two punch with starter Gavin Bartholomew.

Pitt’s latest addition has an interesting background because coming out of Pickerington Central High School in Pickerington, Ohio, Johnson was a 4-star defensive tackle and committed to TCU in the Class of 2019. After transferring from TCU, Johnson went to Butler CC and lost 70+ pounds and switched from the defensive line to the other side of the ball. Growing up, Johnson actually played quarterback before playing tight end for four years in high school.

Johnson arrives at Pitt with two seasons of college eligibility remaining. Following the departure of wide receiver Jordan Addison and with the addition of Johnson, Pitt’s scholarship board still remains at 83.

Pitt’s tight end depth chart now includes Bartholomew, Johnson, Kyi Wright, Jake Renda and Cole Mitchell.
